Decluttering Purifies the Air—Whatever dirt and dust there is in the air it clings to your furniture. This is why when the season’s change and especially in spring homes are cleaned top to bottom. Antiques are great and beautiful, but when they are in a state of disrepair and dirty they put off an order in your home unless you spend the time repairing and polishing them.
Decluttering Sharpens the Mind–When you get rid of all the unneeded knick knacks from the home that collect dust so you don’t have to spend time cleaning them it frees up your time and your mind to concentrate on other things you didn’t have time for. It allows you to better organize your, time, space, and thoughts so that you can become more productive.
