Episode 69: 5 Reasons Why Decluttering is Hard and How to Make it Easier

Has this ever happened to you?

You wake up one morning and decide, “Today is the day I’m going to declutter my home!”

So, you jump out of bed- excited with visions of a completely decluttered and organized home in your head, and you immediately start pulling everything out of your bedroom closet.

Before long, your bed is FULL of clothes, shoes, boxes, and items that got thrown in the closet because they didn’t have a home, to begin with, and that feeling of excitement has now turned into overwhelm.

Now you’re thinking, “This was a bad idea!”

That feeling of overwhelm is why most people don’t even start the decluttering process.

But with a few strategies to overcome the overwhelm and other hardships of decluttering, your closet will be looking like a Pinterest post in no time!

In this episode, I provide 5 hardships when it comes to clearing out and organizing your home, and I’ll also show you how to make decluttering easier.
