Nearly 50% of surveyed homeowners said they won’t invite friends over if their home is cluttered.
Do you run around straightening up when someone is coming over? Do piles of things get dumped into the spare bedroom? Or does the clutter stop you from inviting friends or family over? According to a Rubbermaid survey conducted by Russell Research, you’re not alone.
Dealing with the clutter is the first step. I know, easier said than done, right? Here are some tips:
Short on storage space? Check what’s in your cupboards and closets and let go of what you no longer love, need, or use.
Too much stuff for the size of the space? Sort like things together and then decide how much to keep.
Do some things belong in a different room? Find a spot for them over there.
Keep your goal in mind, and take steps in that direction.
De-cluttering and organizing won’t happen overnight. Get help from family, friends, or a professional when the task is overwhelming or you need it done quickly.
