There are many signs of clutter. Some are subtle and some are obvious. But many people still struggle to identify if their home is cluttered or simply messy.
To help you figure out if you struggle with clutter, we share six common signs and the steps you can take to get sorted.
1. You can’t find items when you need them
Do you lose time each day looking for items around your home? It may be a single shoe or bowl to prepare dinner – the item doesn’t matter, but the action of constantly searching does and is a strong indicator that you’re struggling with clutter.
2. You misplace bills and important documents
Are you someone who is constantly misplacing bills and important documents? Does this lead to late fees and penalties when you miss payments? Sound familiar? You may be struggling with clutter within your home.
3. Your drawers and cupboards won’t close
In case you’re unaware, you should be able to shut all drawers and cupboards within your home comfortably. If you find that yours are overflowing with items – perhaps with items, you no longer use – it may be time to declutter and take control of your space again.
4. You think you need to buy more storage
The same scenario applies if you find yourself complaining about the size of your home or feeling like you need to move to a bigger place. More often than not, the issue isn’t a lack of storage, rather it is your clutter and organisational systems that need to be addressed.
5. You’re spending more time cleaning
Do you find yourself spending more and more time cleaning your home? Maybe you no longer have time to do the things you enjoy – or feel calm and relaxed in your space. These are common signs that clutter is taking control of your home, but thankfully there are ways to change!
6. You feel embarrassed by your home
Have you ever felt embarrassed by your home or choose not to invite friends and family over? If you are uncomfortable having visitors within your space – there is often a larger issue at play and one the team at Home Sorted! are skilled to help you with.
