The first step to a curated home is starting with a home declutter, I know ..I know..you wish their was a faster simpler way...even for me it always feel like Mount Everest, though in reality once I have gone passed my mental block .. like going back to the gym after missing a few months I start getting momentum, excitement and of course I love finding all those things I had not seen in forever.
Let me be completely transparent, the truth is an overflowing home filled with mismatched items and impulse purchases is one of the biggest stumbling blocks for creating flow and personal style.
Decluttering is an essential step, in my ebook "CURATE" I show you how to de-clutter your home and edit it down to your best pieces.
The foundation of a well functioning (and curated) home that is conducive to quick and easy maintenance begins with de-cluttering.
means removing damaged, non-essential or mismatched pieces which will help create a clean canvas to build upon. De-clutteirng is something you really need to commit to doing. Take it one room at a time and ask yourself the following questions, be ruthless about every item and sort your things into two piles, those that are going and those that are staying.
Do I love it?
Do you truly love the item in question? Not did you just love it in the past, but in the present moment is it something that you love?
Do I use it?
If so, when did I use it last? It’s easy to have a default ‘oh yeah, I still use that.’ But do you really? When did you last use it?
Do I want this item in my life going forward?
When you’ve decided you want to declutter your home, it means you will need to be willing to let go of things. Think about the vision you have for your home.
Is this item worth what it’s costing me?
Your clutter costs you in various ways. Is this item worth me continuing to clean, maintain, and store? Your items are meant to serve you. Not for you to serve them.
