Maybe you have seen clutter-free spaces on social media and magazine that seem impossible to achieve. The good news is that you do not need superhuman effort to eliminate clutter and free your space and live a comfortable life. You only need to commit to these basic principles.
As the Dubai real estate industry continues to flourish, most developers are getting involved in the off-plan property market. For instance, Meraas Holdings has several off plan projects in Dubai across the city such as Sur la Mer townhouses. Also, there are numerous apartments for sale in Palm Jumeirah, which is one of the most sought after destination in Dubai.
But before you dream of moving into these new spacious properties, you should first start making your current property clutter-free:
Live within your means
If you are aiming to have a simpler and less cluttered life, you will have to start by living within your means. This means that the size of your space should dictate the items you need and not the other way around. Most people make the mistake of going the other way round and end up having extra items they do not need.
Purge as many times and possible
Even if you are disciplined enough to fit items into your space comfortably, stuff accumulate after some time. Once in a while, go through your things and get rid of the things you do not use anymore. If they are not defective, you can either sell or donate them. This way, you will feel lighter and less stressful.
Designate a place for everything
It is very important to designate a place for everything. Also, you should strive to maintain everything in its place. For an utmost minimalist look, avoid cluttering things on the floor, countertops or tables. If possible, keep items out of sight. For instance, you can designate a junk drawer to keep the small little things such as pens, tapes, etc.
Do not let clutter in
Perhaps the easiest way to live a clutter-free life is by making sure it does not happen. It is much easier for clutter to come in than to go out. The best way to prevent the accumulation of clutter is by avoiding it to come in. Try only to keep things that you need, not the things that you want.
Read letters regularly
Even though it is possible to reduce paper clutter, it is almost impossible to eliminate them. In order to prevent papers from piling up, deal with letters as soon as you can. Also, try to create a system to control the endless paper flow.
