04 Dec Cluttered Floor Syndrome
Symptom: piles on floor
Diagnosis: storage areas filled with the wrong things
- If you have piles of papers on your floor, your files need to be skinnied down – 80% of things put in files are never referenced again. Clear your files and you’ll have room for the new relevant information.
- If you have clean clothes still in the laundry basket, your closets and dressers are probably filled with out- of-style clothing and things you don’t wear. Clear your closet and you’ll be able to find the things you really like.
- If it’s hard to walk into your storage areas and extra rooms, it’s a pretty good indicator that your closets and storage shelving need to be gone through and obsolete items moved on. Clear out the old to make room for the new.
With the holidays coming and the influx of new things imminent, now is a great time to invest a few hours into clearing space.
(Note: holiday gifts are excused from the “shouldn’t be on floor” guideline – because this is a temporary situation)
