Some of us are so used to living in homes full of excess stuff we can’t see it anymore.
Some red flags that tell us we have too much stuff…
We spend too long tidying up before guests arrive
A horrible feeling of shame when someone visits us unexpectedly
In a desperate attempt to clear up, we shove everything in a cupboard
If we are lucky enough to have cleaners we spend hours picking up before they arrive
We postpone cleaning our home because the thought of shifting piles of stuff leaves us feeling mentally drained
To see the excess stuff objectively it helps to take photos of the rooms. Then, go to a coffee shop and while sipping a cappuccino, peruse those photos. They can provide insight into how our possessions became a burden and where we can lighten the load.
