Clutter quotes and sayings are fantastic ways to give perspective on all that “stuff” that so easily accumulates in your home AND life. They can be a great way to focus your mind on the clutter, motivate you to start decluttering, and so much more. Here are my favourite clutter quotes in a neat little collection, to give you a little inspiration for whatever clutter you have to deal with at the moment.
I am slightly addicted to a good quote.
The right one seems to speak to me in a way that other things don’t – are you the same?
I really love that quotes show different peoples points of view, and therefore help me to see things in different ways – which is key to being able to change that which I want to.
They are motivating, inspiring, and funny – but always pretty educational (in a short quick burst that’s easy to take!) – and so I wanted to collect together all the quotes I have found that are specifically related to clutter.
Well – If you take a look, you’re bound to find at least one that you can relate to for exactly where you are on your decluttering journey right now.
You’ll find all sorts of quotes, from Marie Kondo and Peter Walsh with their decluttering quotes, to Einstein and William Morris (and even me!). There are even a few funny clutter quotes in there as well – because we all need to laugh & smile more, right!
I recommend writing one or two down where you’ll see them each day, so you get a dose of exactly what you need – and it will help you push through when you’re feeling less than motivated!
So – let’s go, shall we!
Clutter Quotes you’re going to love…
A brilliant reminder that the physical clutter can be so restrictive if we let it get out of control…
Things get broken, last for a short while, and tend to get forgotten when the next thing comes along (this is especially true for kids toys) – whereas special memories of events in our life can stay with us for a lifetime.
Think back – do you remember exactly what you got for christmas for the past few years, or do you remember the actual memories of the day itself more vividly?
This in itself is a great way to think when you are trying to declutter, as you not only save money on buying less, but also spend less time on the upkeep of things – so you have more time and money to spend on making those memories that will last a lifetime…
It’s all about mindset with this one. If we get it into our minds that stuff is just things, and we have too much usually – then we’re halfway there…
You don’t have to be a minimalist to deal wit the clutter – but having less helps everyone!
It’s all too easy to put your head in the sand when decluttering.
I feel like this when a decisions too hard to make – but this quote really puts it into perspective, as you are going to have to make the decision sooner or later.
I know that once I have made the decision I feel so much better – so much more empowered – which helps to make the decision making quicker the next time – a win-win!
There you have it – loads of brilliant clutter quotes and sayings to love.
I hope you’ve found one (or two!) that really spoke to you and that these quotes will inspire decluttering to start (or carry on) in your home right now.
