With spring cleaning comes a feeling of “out with the old and in with the new.” And while it may not literally mean “new” it does seem to refer to new beginnings. Monica is in the home of Danielle Wurth, owner of Wurth Organizing, to find out how getting organized can make for a new home and a new life.
According to Wurth, clutter and loose ends in our homes weighs us down both physically and emotionally. Not only does clutter take up physical space but emotional space as well. She suggests starting with an area that is easy to make discards and eliminate clutter. She warns not to start with areas involving memories like photographs and keepsakes.
Wurth also says not to run out and buy totes, trays, files and crates to put things in because until you are organized and eliminate the unnecessary you don’t know what you have or what you will need to organize. Doing so wastes time, energy and money and gives you an excuse to put off the task of organizing.
