Do you ever wonder how to maintain a decluttered home? Here are a few surprising secrets I’ve learned about how to clear the clutter for good.
After many years of minimalist living, I’ve learned that your “stuff” will almost always expand to fill the space available.
Look at your all your surfaces: your kitchen counters, your bookshelves, your bedside tables. Could you improve the space by decluttering just one thing?
This is often a bandaid solution. You might achieve your desired results in the short-term, but in the long-term, you haven’t learned how to live with less.
It’s not just about being tidy (although it certainly helps!). It’s also about knowing the purpose of your stuff. If you don’t know where it goes, it’s probably because you don’t really need it.
