Triggers to Declutter
23 Sept 2021
This episode is about triggers that prompt you to do a declutter or a re-organise. Using triggers can be a valuable tool both in a slow-and-steady decluttering way, or when you're in maintenance mode.
Bec and Tara will help you identify any triggers you may have, or some you can use in a new way to help you on your decluttering journey.
WHAT ARE CLUTTER TRIGGERS?
Clutter triggers are situations or occurrences in everyday life that draw your attention and can highlight the need to declutter in that area or space.
WHY ARE THEY HELPFUL?
- when you are aware of these scenarios occurring (like finding yourself searching for keys) it highlights your need to take action
- sometimes you can take action immediately (like at the utensil drawer) or if it’s a longer job (like the wardrobe/ closet) you can schedule it for later
- they can help you prioritise your decluttering efforts, showing you where your efforts need to be targeted to
- you can also use them for cleaning and tidying. If you aren’t a schedule person, you can use triggers to indicate the need to get the tasks done.
