Decluttering, arranging, sorting, cleaning, organizing – while these may appear as some of the most boring tasks at home; each of these are essential for a clutter-free home and hassle-free life. As magnets of positive energy and the vibrant feel, clutter-free look of houses spread enthusiasm all around. While the organization of our rooms and cabinets forms the most important priority, decluttering them at regular intervals is also extremely essential. By giving away old, unused belongings and clearing space filled with unwanted items, we can allow the flow of positive vibes. Recognizing the significance of a clutter-free house and realizing its value in the daily course of life, I look forward to these essential tasks at regular intervals.

     Though decluttering may relate to the discarding of things, it does not equate to throwing away without proper consideration. While decluttering my house, I focus on the theme of ‘rearranging’ instead of ‘reducing’. By donating unused items for charity, reusing old products in a new role, throwing away non-functional items and limiting unnecessary purchase, I am able to achieve the clutter-free goal. While hunting for novel ideas and exploring diverse options, I look around for means to declutter my home.

    Besides cleaning and clearing, decluttering activity brings discipline to the house. Timely removal of unnecessary aspects and regular tasks of rearrangements confer a systematic look at the household. Clearing of unnecessary factors has a positive impact on our health too. While discarding trash is considered as a timely task, decluttering unwanted clothes, shoes, utensils, and household items are essential too. Regular supervision of our cabinets and closets can reflect all the unwanted resources. By careful analysis and effective planning, we can avoid such useless accumulation.

    A task that requires equal participation from every member of the house, the decluttering activity can be turned into a fun-filled event! While giving away old items may take away the wonderful memories attached to them, a departure of unwanted resources can make way for the arrival of newer factors. As the continuous on-going process that runs in a cyclic manner –purchasing, utilizing, reusing and discarding from steps of the circle. For ambiance of happiness and peace, this flow of events needs to be practiced in a regular fashion.

      While implementing these decluttering ideas within the scope of my house, I extract happiness, satisfaction, and joy.
