An Organized Home Creates A Happy Family

Keeping an organized home can be a bit tricky if you have young ones around the house like I do. Some days it feels like you just cleaned up one room and a few minutes later it looks like the Terminator has been in there! But keeping your home clutter free can actually save you time because you can find things faster and it keeps your family happy. Believe it!

Experts agree that clutter is costly. It's costly not only in the amount of time it takes us to find the things we need, but also in hurt feelings among family members who don't like clutter. They may want to entertain but feel they can't because your house is too unorganized . When you remove the clutter you'll have an organized home and a happy family, and you'll enjoy your home much more.

Clutter does more than just wear on your family's emotions. It may become a way to avoid dealing with what is going on in your life - a way to insulate you from something that has hurt you. Some people hold on to clutter because they've had tragedies in the past and are afraid to let go. Letting go, however, is necessary if you want to reclaim your home, your family, and your life.

Many people with seriously cluttered homes may want to start getting organized. However, they are overwhelmed by the amount of "stuff" and don't know where to start. Starting to organize your home and de-clutter is often the hardest thing. After getting started, they then have to face the task of letting go.

Families that have a lot of clutter to live with may experience any of the following:

  • Frustration and anger over the amount of clutter
  • Family battles over getting rid of things
  • Shame or guilt to the point they won't let anyone come into their home
  • Depression and feeling stuck in a situation of their own making
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed by the clutter and life

There will also be less tension and fighting among your family members because you have an organized home. Everyone will be able to relax more than when the clutter took over. You'll also be amazed that you'll actually have more time for your family because you won't be wasting so much time looking for things. What's more, you and your family will be able to actually invite friends over without fear of embarrassment or being ashamed because of the amount of clutter in your home.

Clutter makes your home unorganized. When you are able to let go of the clutter and organize your home, you'll be amazed at the transformation that takes place. You'll have an organized home and a happy family, and you'll feel much better about yourself.
