It is important to keep your home organized for so many reasons.
For starters less stress. When you are looking for something and can’t find it ,it becomes a stressed out situation. If you create a place for everything, then everything has a place.
Growing up I had a very small room. It did not have a closet. I have to admit I was a bit messy. But if you think about it I had no where to put anything. When I finally moved out of my childhood apartment I was already a mother of a 4 month old. I had a whole entire apartment. Lots of closets and 2 bedrooms. I had a place for everything. It made my friends sick how clean and organized my apartment was.
The truth , I wasn’t very happy with myself . The only way to keep myself happy was to be organized. I was a stay at home mother. I really had no reason not to keep a clean house. After my second child, If my apartment started to feel cluttered I would have to start getting rid of things. As my kids grew out of there things I would find a charity or a friend who might be able to use the stuff. Sometimes I would even post it on Craigslist. I would even check the items wanted section. Most of the stuff I would give away was like new. Who knew that I would end up to be an inspiration to others.
As years passed my friends would ask me to come over and help them organize there homes. I would help them realize that to be more organized meant less stress. When you let go of the junk you are collecting and hold on to the things you truly treasure. It makes for a happy home.
I have been living with my husband for 10 years now. How lucky I am that we are on the same page. If you and whom you are living with aren’t . Have no fear. You start with your things first. no matter what don’t give in tho the mess. They will see how easy it is to find things when they’re in the appropriate place. You can even practice this with you kids. My kids rooms aren’t always in perfect shape. They do know where to look if they need something. It makes for clean up and easier task when everything has a place.
I hope you can find happiness in a clutter free home. I know it is a big part of the stress free lifestyle I live with my family.
