I talk quite a bit here on the blog about two types of Someday Syndrome: figuring out your dreams and putting them into action. There’s a third type that I don’t talk about all that much – and it’s called “I Might Need It Someday.”
This variety of Someday Syndrome is all about clutter – the physical stuff we hold onto that keeps us from living our dreams and moving forward out of our comfortable (but often unhappy) ruts.
In my pre-Europe life, I worked as a Professional Organizer, helping people clear clutter and create systems in their homes and home offices and while I don’t talk all that much about it now, if you want to achieve your dreams, you’re going to have to address your physical clutter at some point as well.
Our inner and outer worlds reflect each other. If you have too much stuff, or your stuff is disorganized, it’s highly likely that your mental and emotional states will be cluttered and disorganized.
May people find organizing difficult – it’s so hard to be objective about our own stuff. We attach memory and sentiment to the craziest objects making it impossible to get rid of them. We tie our sense of self worth to how much we have, so collect compulsively.
Or, more normally, we get so busy getting through the day we forget to take care of the space around us.
Last year I had the fortunate opportunity to work as a contributor to an organizing project that’s just launched. It’s called The Clutter Code and it’s a series of videos, ebooks and worksheets designed to take you through four areas of your home to help you find space, find peace and find the energy to chase after your dreams instead of chasing after that lost unpaid telephone bill.
The best part? These videos are totally affordable. If you bring a Professional Organizer into your home, you’ll pay between $40 to $100 per hour depending on the size of your organizing project. And the Clutter Code packages? Only $29.99 per package.
How awesome is that?
Sorry, I was wrong just there – the best part isn’t the price. The best part is fun you’ll have watching the videos. The host Laura makes me giggle every time I watch one of these things. Check out the Closet Hokey Pokey to see what I mean.
So, if you want to clear the physical clutter from your life at the same time that you’re clearing out the Somedays, then I’d highly recommend you go check out The Clutter Code site.
PS. Yes, as well as a contributor to the project, I am an affiliate, so if you purchase a Clutter Code package, I will earn some money. Stay tuned for more reviews of products and services in my Someday-Busting Affiliate list (coming up most Wednesdays).
