You just can’t seem to get things decluttered or you do get things decluttered but they never stay that way? It seems like every time you get things nice and neat it gets cluttered again almost immediately? Why even bother with it? https://www.foundationlist.org/
Have you ever felt that way? Of course you have, we all have. Why even bother with it, it will just get cluttered again – and it does. It happens to all of us.
The trick is not to declutter your place, the real trick it to keep it decluttered. To maintain a decluttered environment. The key word here is maintain so let’s see what the dictionary says about the word maintain. It says: cause to continue. So we want to continue the decluttered condition.
There are various ways this can be done but it all starts with a strong foundation. But unlike a building with solid concrete as the foundation we will use ideas or beliefs or desires as our foundation. The only problem with these things, as opposed to solid concrete, is that they are transient, fleeting and changing phenomena. You can have the greatest of intentions today and completely declutter your home but by tomorrow you forget why decluttering was so important and the clutter builds up again. Up and down like a roller coaster. That’s because we don’t have a solid as concrete foundation for decluttering. We use fleeting desires. They are here today gone tomorrow.
So how do we get a solid foundation to “continue” the immaculate decluttered condition? Gee I really hate to tell you cause it’s so simple you will kick yourself for not thinking of it. Maybe you should take some guesses before I tell you so you won’t kick yourself. Have you taken a guess or two? Ready for me to tell you the obvious? Okay ready or not here it is. Make yourself a declutter list and use it as your solid foundation.
When you first went to all the trouble to declutter your home in the first place you had your own reasons for doing so. Quick get a piece of paper and a pen (or use your computer, even better), think back and recapture the reason(s) you decluttered your home, room or office. Got them? Can you see them? Good now write them down. Got them all down? Good, now look some more and come up with more reasons or desires for decluttering your home and write those down. Congratulations this is your declutter list. This is your solid foundation.
