Black Friday is the beginning of the holiday shopping season with sales at just about every store. Instead of rushing out to buy more items that you don’t actually need, why not consider decluttering your living space and spending some Hygge time with your family and friends?
When we do not know where things are in our homes, we are obviously not aware of what we own so we keep adding new possessions instead of finding the ones that we already have. When we go to the store, we randomly buy bits and pieces because we think that they will transform our home into a dream. The truth is that it will only contribute to the clutter because too many things are already adding to the confusion.
When we start confronting our stuff, cleaning up, organizing, and decluttering, we begin to experience the amazing feeling of freedom that comes from living in a home that reflects the best part of us! We will also feel more comfortable about entertaining guests in our home.
By clearing the clutter from your home and donating to charities this holiday season, you can also feel good about helping those folks who are less fortunate than you are.
You might be thinking that a cleaning expedition is one of the last things you have time for during the holiday season, but just think about how good it will feel to entertain family and friends in a home that you feel good about.
The goal is to create a home that supports your well-being and is free of clutter – a home ready to help you create the mood of Danish Hygge, and a life with more freedom.
In my book, Goodbye Clutter, Hello Freedom, I show you how to create space for Danish Hygge and lifestyle by cleaning up, organizing and decorating with care. When you start caring about your home and your surroundings you will find that you have much more time for fun and Hygge.
If the thought of doing the entire house is too overwhelming, start with just one room or even your closet. Throw away or donate the things you no longer need, so your home feels cozy and ready for hygge—just in time for the holidays.
My book, Enjoy Your Wardrobe: How to declutter and discover your treasures will help you to experience the amazing feeling of freedom that comes from having a wardrobe filled with only your treasures so you can dress in clothing that reflects the best part of you.
