When I first decluttered our home, I found it easier to find things and put things away.
No more stacks of clothes next to the dresser, because the dresser was already full. No more stacks of clean dishes, because the kitchen cupboards were full of clean dishes.
The homeschool closets are next. We can’t put away the art supplies, because we have too many. I think what we are going to find, after cleaning out the closet, is that we use the supplies more often, because we can find things. No more wanting to paint, but not wanting to start because it will take too long to pull everything together.
I’m not an advocate for throwing things away. Part of this procrastination is finding the right place or way to dispose. Maybe it is finding a younger homeschooler that wants water colors and brushes. Maybe it is just focusing on one box, and enjoying the last of the contents before recycling the remains.
The benefits will be very clear. More time to do the art we want. Less time to organize and clean up.
