Organized Home: Is The Size of Your House the “Real” Problem?

Do you have to have a certain size house to have an organized home?

 

It’s usually a thought that comes into our heads at least once a week maybe even once a day. “If I just had a bigger house I would have more space and less clutter filling it up. I could really have an organized home if I just had more space to put my things.”

Then it becomes an issue that you just aren’t going to do anything to get rid of clutter and more organized unless you have that bigger house.

Well, I don’t know about you but buying a bigger house can get awfully expensive and then moving all of your stuff, well, that’s another mountain to climb entirely.

So, let’s think realistically here. What would really happen if you had a bigger house?

Yeah to begin with, right after you move in you would have more space, but what happens after that when you start getting it in your mind that your house needs just a few more items to really make it feel like home.

Then once again you have piles and piles of stuff again but this time it’s in a bigger house which means you have way more stuff than you had before.

Take a look at this video that I found, this might help shed a little light on the reality of the situation.

Now, I do realize that you are probably thinking to yourself that it is your home. A place for family, traditions and memories, right?

How much time do you really get to spend with your family, making traditions and memories?

Think about it.

Do they have a place to sit down with you and spend some heart to heart time with you or is there really no place to sit because the kitchen table along with your couch is piled high with clutter?

What kind of memories are being made when you are stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, and just plain and simply unhappy about the clutter that has taken over your house.

Really if you think about it your clutter is controlling you.

The way you think, how much time you get to spend with family and friends, what you eat, when you exercise…do you really see how the amount of clutter you have literately sucks the life out of you?

David F. Tolin, director of the anxiety disorders center at the Institute of Living in Hartford and an adjunct associate professor of psychiatry at Yale says, “It isn’t a house problem, It’s a person problem”,”The person needs to fundamentally change their behavior”.

Before taking a huge step in purchasing a bigger house, I encourage you to look in your house today and really look at how the clutter is controlling your life even to the extent of possibly going in debt just so it can grow.

Why would you want your clutter to grow?

I say instead of letting it have the best of you, you get rid of it so you can have the best of yourself. Isn’t it time?

Haven’t you wasted enough time with the stuff in your life instead of the people around you?

It’s time to declutter your house and transform it into an “organized home”.

Do you need to declutter your home, in the process of decluttering, or have already done it?

If you are willing to share I would love to hear from you.
