Decluttering Your Home For The Holidays

 

“It’s a scientific fact that clutter causes anxiety.”

I spent the past week giving thanks with family and friends and I got started on my Christmas decorations.

It is amazing the stuff that comes into my field of vision when I start decorating for the holidays.  If you are feeling like your house is becoming overrun with stuff,  I’ve got a great solution to purge your home this holiday season.

 I don’t know about you but about the time I start my holiday decorating, I begin looking around at the things my kids accumulate through the year.  Their closets, bookcases and every other nook and cranny in their rooms have things they have outgrown or moved on from.

All this stuff really needs another home.

When I start to feel this anxiety I do something I call the December Purge.  It’s kind of like spring cleaning but even better because by doing this cleanout in December I am able to relieve a lot the stress that comes from being at home a lot over the holidays with the kids out of school. I find that getting all this stuff out of my house gives me the space I need to really enjoy the holidays with my family.  My goal is always to get this stuff out of my house while making sure it doesn’t all just head to the landfill.

You own a lot of stuff—but your stuff also owns you. If you’re thinking it’s time to part with a few of your spare possessions, why not do it in a way that can benefit both your community and environment?
