Here is an excerpt from an unknown author I find inspirational:

Close up of a camera lens

Life is like a camera…
Focus on what’s important,
Capture the good times,
Develop from the negatives,
And if things don’t work out,
Take another shot.


We can apply this concept to clutter and our homes, as well as to life:

Your home is like a camera…
It contains the “film” on which your lifestyle is imprinted.

Focus on what’s important,
Design your environment to align with your goals and inspirations.

Capture the good times,
Keep only the treasures and let go of what you don’t use or love.

Develop from the negatives,
Develop systems and habits to keep up with daily goals.

And if things don’t work out, take another shot.
Backsliding happens…just restart using those systems and habits!

I hope you find inspiration in these ideas; and remember to:

Carve out time to go through your items and let go of the excess.

Put similar items together where they are used when arranging what you keep.

Develop systems to process mail, clean up, and manage your tasks.

Don’t forget to smile and say “Cheese”… I mean “Ease.”
