Good feng shui starts with organization and this is a great way to keep clutter away. Clutter is to chi, like nails are to chalkboards for most people. A definite irritant. When things are irritating that's when things spiral out of control.
Clutter will make the ugly side of chi come out. Think; chaotic, crazy, and no good. It's a nightmare for sure. Clutter is just as bad for us as it is for chi. A tidy, well organized environment nurtures a space for our creativity, concentration and excellence. All of our sacred spaces need to be organized and clutter free but it isn't so easy to do all of the time especially with our hectic lives, and multi-tasking.
I find it easy to keep clutter free if I purge every month. I go into all of my rooms and do a quick run through of every thing I haven't touched or used in a while. If it still has life and use in it, something some one can benefit from I give it away on www.freecycle.org if it just junk I try to recycle, re-use, re-new and don't forget re-purpose. There is no reason not to keep green while being conscious of clutter.
Do you have a tip for how you keep clutter-free? If so, share it by leaving a comment.
