Good morning friends of the world. Though I’m currently buried in the blizzard conditions of Northeast, Pennsylvania, today is a new day and a great day for change.
This time of year it is common for magazines to be packed with articles on ‘organizational tips.’ They will display beautiful living spaces decorated in trendy colors, with pretty baskets, flowers, knick-knacks and various other décor. They will tell you to purge, urging you to spend money and buy new things.
Who doesn’t want to improve their home? Of course we all do. Being a home decore professional, owning my own furniture store and contrary to practical business 101, I’m telling you in good faith this mentality is all wrong.
I’m writing to tell you that purchasing more décor and adding to the clutter should not be your last step. Instead, start with never going to bed with a messy kitchen. Second, everyone makes their beds in the morning. Step three, hang up your bath towels. And lastly, put those dirty clothes in the hamper.
Follow these few simple steps and you’ll find yourself more content and maybe even finding your home deserving of a spotlight in Better Homes and Garden.
