Gardening wisdoms to help you clutter clear your home

NettleWeeding a garden has many similarities to clutter clearing your home.

I was reflecting on this today as I was pulling out nettles. I thought I’d got rid of them from my garden last year but the roots go deep and they happily over-wintered and sprang back up. The same thing happens with clutter. If you don’t get to the source of the problem, it will just accumulate again.

On the other hand, to some people nettles are not weeds at all. I may not want them in my garden but to someone who loves nettle tea, they are a delight and a rich source of vitamins and minerals. Similarly, I may not want clutter in my house, but the things I get rid of may be just what someone else needs and wants.

Like weeding, clutter clearing needs to be done again and again.

And like weeding, you always feel better when you stand back and survey the results of your toil.

Many people tell me that after clutter clearing their home, they get inspired to start on their garden. It can also work the other way around – weed your garden and you’ll be more inclined to do the same in your home.
