Embarking on a home remodel is a journey of transformation. As we prepare to breathe new life into our space, we know there is another step required before we can enjoy it: clearing the clutter. It’s like preparing the garden before planting vibrant flowers – we have to remove the weeds to create room for growth and beauty.
Picture our clutter as unwanted greens, choking the life out of our home. By meticulously pruning and eliminating what no longer serves us, we create space for fresh possibilities to grow.
Three things we’re embarking upon while our house transforms:
- Simplifying our space: We’ll evaluate each item, asking if it brings us joy or serves a purpose. Anything that falls short gets willingly released.
- Donating or selling: Unwanted items find new homes through contributions or online sales, becoming someone else’s treasure.
- Organizing strategically: Utilizing space well with less. Because we’ve got less space during the remodel, our essentials need to be neatly organized, fostering clarity and calm. With less space, we’re given the opportunity to downsize, minimize and simplify. (If you need organizational devices, you’ve already got too much for your space! I learned that one way too late).
Bottom line, as we clear the clutter, we’re laying the foundation for a remarkable new beginning. By letting go of the unnecessary, we create a canvas where our remodeling dreams are unfolding. We’re embracing the process, simplifying our space and eagerly anticipating the beautiful vision that awaits.
