Throughout the day we all have little bits of time- 5 minutes here, 5 minutes there. It never seems like enough time to complete an entire project- especially when we feel overrun with clutter.
But every 5 minutes of diligent work brings you that much closer to a more clutter-free home.
To become clutter-free, it’s not the weekend deep cleaning marathons, of course, those do make a difference in your home- but to sustain it?
It takes 5 minutes of work throughout the day- every day.
Often times we approach things with the idea of “If it can’t be done right, don’t do it at all” and when we think of decluttering, we think we need an entire day to sort through and entire area. It’s a daunting thought, and it’s easy to come up with more important things to do.
Committing to doing little things throughout the day is what makes the big difference in our home. Having quick routines in place means that our homes stay clutter-free and inviting. Of course, it would be nice to be able to have weeks of no obligations so we could declutter our home. But we don’t, so we have to fit decluttering into our life in the little bits of time between our obligations.
These tasks are meant to be something we can do in those extra 5 minutes. Quick decluttering tasks that will make a difference in your home, 5 minutes at a time.
Do you have 5 minutes where you don’t have anything going on?
Pick a task.
Then reward yourself!
