How Clutter Accumulates

Over the past couple weeks I’ve been writing a series of posts about how clutter finds it way into our homes and stays there. You can find them on my Instagram, @save.your.space. I suggest ways to deal with the causes of clutter so you can reduce the items you don’t actually want or need, and enjoy your space. It’s not easy and may take time but the results are worth it – imagine your space making you feel good! What an incentive.

There are all kinds of things that lead to clutter; life events, habits, gifts and so on, and they may not all apply to you, but if you feel your home is cluttered it’s likely at least one of these factors is in play. Here’s a handy list (below) that reflects the order of my posts: do any of them sound familiar to you? Hop on over to my Instagram @save.your.space to get some handy tips. Feel free to ask questions in the comments, and let me know if there’s something you want to hear about next, or if something has helped you move forward and declutter.
