Moms need to declutter differently than people without kids
You can declutter successfully, IF you have these 3 things. Without them you will end up doing a lot of work inside your home, but never really make progress. You clutter shift, and exhaust yourself but never really get things out of your home for good.
Your kids interrupt you and have inconvenient, and still urgent needs. It just is what it is.
All moms do this! Which is why I love talking about how to fix it. So, if you want to finally declutter your home here is what you need:
You need a plan.
And you need that plan to be put in order for you. A format that makes it easy to pick up where you left off when you get interrupted – you’ve been winging it. This is as simple as getting a start to finish decluttering plan for your whole house like Decluttering Simplified!
You also need a plan for all the hurdles. How will you deal with clutter you keep “just in case”, or “what if I need it”. How will you guide your kids through their decluttering decisions? And what about the guilt, wasted money, and not RE-cluttering?
You need a plan.
Flexible follow through for your decluttering success.
You need a plan that gives you enough structure to keep you on task, and flexible enough to do it with all the things mom life throws your way.
Like the way I have been interrupted 4 times while writing this blog for you already because I have kids who just make that the way my life is right now, and I can’t change it.
People who get you.
It needs feel simple for you, and doable as a mom. Which means you need to learn from someone who is like you, and declutter alongside moms who are dealing with the same things you are.
Here’s a post from the Decluttering Simplified community after one of their co-declutering sessions :). It makes me so happy to see moms supporting each other while following the same plan that was designed specifically to help them declutter. Even if they are a busy mom.
