Quick declutter challenge 3 – dining room

I hope you found the tips for decluttering quickly in Quick Declutter Challenge 2 helpful.

Don’t skip this challenge because you don’t have a dining room.  Many dining spaces have been turned into offices.  You probably have a table that collects clutter or a cupboard that collects too many candles, napkins and unused dishes.  It might be in the kitchen, a hallway or a dining room. When clutter is continually visible in a common space area people can start to feel anxious.

In a book I am reading Limitless by Jim Kwik he says, “A Princeton study found that physical clutter competes for your attention  ( frontal cortex of your brain) and decreases performance and increases anxiety and stress. Divest yourself of things that attract your attention and distract you.”  In the common areas of your home, you want to reduce anxiety, stress and overwhelm.  Join the quick declutter challenge 3 and bring happiness to your home.

A list of 9 things to declutter from your dining room

If you have missed Quick Declutter Challenge 1 – cosmetics or Quick Declutter Challenge 2 – bedrooms you can join the challenge now.  Complete the challenges in any order.

In the comment let me know what you found when you decluttered this area.

      It is important to pick the areas that are bothering you the most to start your decluttering. It is very motivational to get them done and be able to stop thinking about them. Then you might want to go back to the first 3 challenges.
