Wellbeing: Indulge the urge to purge

Wellbeing: Indulge the urge to purge:

Q Why is orderly space important to our lives?

A Our environment affects everything in our lives. It affects our health. It affects our relationships. It affects our finances. It makes a huge difference when people can transform their space. They feel more relaxed, less stressed, and they don’t have to go out and buy duplicates of things because they can find what they need.

Q Once you’ve de-cluttered your space, how do you stop accumulating of clutter again?

A ...use your “one-in, one-out” rule. For every item that comes into the home, you need to be disciplined to let one go. It saves you money because you think twice before buying . You ask yourself, “Do I really need it? Or do I have enough at home?”
