Life with kids can be messy, but let’s make it a beautiful mess! Full of creativity, toys we love, memories filled with laughter.
When I talk about living clutter free, I don’t mean living with no stuff whatsoever.
This is what I mean.
A lounge with a cubby house made out of cushions and a few toys scattered around that have been used in imaginative play.
A table covered in a recent art project.
A kitchen full of dishes leftover from the afternoon play date.
Baskets and bins full of five year old toys – some broken, some without batteries, many that the kids don’t play with.
A table with stacks of art supplies that are rarely used because the kids are overwhelmed with choice, and parents loathe taking them out because there is so much to clean up.
A kitchen filled up with dozens of different kinds of plates and foods that can never be cleaned up because there is not enough space for everything.
See the difference?
Look around your house and find five things that you would consider clutter.
If you still aren’t sure, ask yourself:
Do these things add to your wellbeing? To the connection in your family? To your daily enjoyment?
If your answer is no, then they are likely clutter!
Do you have a hard time deciding what to keep and get rid of? What are five things that you would be happy to give away right now?
