4 Ways to Conquer Clutter

Who hates clutter? I know I do. It makes me feel very dizzy if I am being honest.

Clutter is a major problem for most of us. At a point in our lives, we most likely have to deal with clutter, especially when we start growing our family. To be clear, clutter is bad. It takes up all available space and you never know for sure what you have because it is most likely all buried under a pile somewhere. Which causes wastage because you end up duplicating lots of what you have already because you can’t find. And that leads to more clutter.

So how do we sort out the clutter issue? Here are a 4 tips you will definitely find handy –

 

More storage

If possible, get some more storage in your home. This way, you have some more extra space to play around with, pending when the clutter is sorted. You could start with a shed if you can, or you could increase your space with a DIY Conservatory. Whichever way you can, try to get increase your storage options in your home to sort out the clutter.

 

Get organised

Have a good look at all what you have and get rid of anything you don’t need. So for clothes, if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in a year, get rid of it. You could give it away to charity or sell the items if they are still in a good condition. If the item is not good enough to give charity or to sell, then you need to bin it.

You need to be a little ruthless when doing this task, no room for sentiments or else you will still be left with some clutter.

 

Stop buying

While the decluttering is going on, you need to only buy what you need. So no shopping for unnecessary stuff until the clear out is done. This way you get to discover what you definitely need and what you don’t. And avoid wasting your hand earned money on items you have already but can’t see.

 

Recycle

Recycle as many items as you can. I always make sure I send any furniture or home equipment I won’t be needing to our local recycle centre. It is my own way of taking care of the environment, and it makes me feel good.

Why More Women are Quitting Their Jobs to Run Their Own Business

The journey to independence for women has been a very long one. If you go through history, women had to fight to have a place as members of the work force. It was a huge struggle as women were relegated to the background. According to societal norms, the only job women could do at that time was to be housewives.

Fast forward to the 21st century, women are taking up more roles in the work force. They are not only trained to practice their profession, they also head key positions. From the civil service to corporate institutions, women are no longer an unfamiliar sight.

But now there is a new trend springing up. More women are transitioning from being employees to being business owners. I am privileged to be among them. I left my 9-to-5 to focus on my own business.

A lot of people wonder why there are more women quitting their jobs to run businesses of their own. I thought it will be a good idea to compile a list of key reasons why they do so.

 

Participating in the rat race doesn’t cut it anymore

Having a 9-to-5 jobs creates the illusion of stability and an avenue to practice your profession. You’re assured of a regular job with a good salary and a pension when you retire. But the truth is that working at a 9-to-5 job is anything BUT stable.

You could be fired at any time. Your salary may not be enough to pay all your bills and you could end up living on your credit card. The office politics causes both emotional and mental agony. Even if everything about working at a 9-to-5 were rosy, it doesn’t give you fulfillment.

Smart women know that in order to truly experience a good life, they need to take matters into their own hands and be their own bosses.

You’re more in control

If there is anything working as an employee doesn’t offer, it would be living life on your own terms. As an employee, you are constantly taking orders from a superior. Unlike a 9-to-5, running your own business guarantees flexible working hours and you are able to work towards what you want to receive every month.

Female entrepreneurs know that taking care of a family comes with a lot of responsibilities and no matter how generous your employer is there are some things he or she will not be willing to waive for you.

 

Freedom to pursue your passion

Let’s face it. You can actually count the number of people who are happy with their cubicle lifestyle. I remember when I was working at my 9-to-5, more than half of my colleagues sulked to work. Starting from Monday, everyone was looking forward to Friday so that they could enjoy the weekend. I can never forget the days my work caused me so much strain and sadness.

When I finally called it quits and started my own business, I established a business that brought me fulfillment. I was able to do something that I am passionate about.

 

That is exactly what female entrepreneurs get to enjoy when they run their own businesses. They do what they love and business is never a drag because they are passionate about what they are doing.
