1 In 3 Families Have A
Is Yours One of Them?
IT’S A WORD THAT HAS A DIFFERENT MEANING TO EVERYONE. WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD CLUTTER, WHAT DO YOU PICTURE IN YOUR MIND?
1. cover or fill (something) with an untidy collection of things.”the room was cluttered with his bric-a-brac”
synonyms: litter, make untidy, make a mess of, mess up, throw into disorder, disarrange, jumble; be strewn about, be scattered about; informal make a shambles of; literary bestrew” the garden was cluttered with broken appliances and discarded furniture”
2. a collection of things lying about in an untidy state.”the attic is full of clutter”
CONSIDERING THE OFFICIAL DICTIONARY MEANING OF CLUTTER IS A COMBINATION OF UNTIDY, MESSY AND DISORDER, DO YOU THINK THIS IS THE SAME AS HOARDING?
1. to accumulate for preservation, future use, etc., in a hidden or carefully guarded place: to hoard food during a shortage.
2. to accumulate money, food, or the like, in a hidden or carefully guarded place for preservation, future use, etc.
3. a supply or accumulation that is hidden or carefully guarded for preservation, future use, etc.: a vast hoard of silver.
IT’S A WORD THAT CAN TRANSLATE TO MANY AREAS OF YOUR LIFE, NOT JUST YOUR HOME.
CLUTTER IS WHAT MOST OF US DEAL WITH ON A DAILY BASIS!
We’re busy, we take something out of a cupboard and in our mad rush, forget to return it to where it belongs. Before we know it clutter can build quite quickly. By the time you get home from work you’ll most likely need to prepare for dinner, and the last thing on your mind is to walk back into the bathroom and put your makeup away. Even washing those morning dishes before preparing your evening meal doesn’t fit in the right order. Now imagine the rest of your home, the hubby too is in his usual morning rush, leaving behind a trail of his things around the home, and don’t forget about the kids….well they’re most likely the worst to tidy up after themselves.
All of these small items left here and there from a busy family will ensure that you’re home is filled with clutter before you even realise it.
A DISH OR TWO LEFT ON A BENCH TOP, FOLLOWED BY A MORNING BATHROOM RUSH, WILL LEAVE MAKE UP AND DISHES TO INSTANTLY CAUSE CLUTTER ACROSS TWO ROOMS OF YOUR HOME WITHOUT EVEN REALISING IT.
HOARDING, HOWEVER IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT.
This is a habit centred around the persistent habit of not being able to dispose of anything around the home. This includes items such as the daily newspaper, receipts, boxes, papers, clothing….and the list goes on. The easiest way to understand it is this: Most of us love to create a collection of things we love. We feel comfort when we look at our fancy shoe collection, it brings us joy and we feel proud to put them up on display.
They feel there is true value in what they have collected, they buy in bulk to ensure they never run out and once they have plenty, they simply go out and buy even more of the same. There is a distinct connection between people that hoard and anxiety.
SOMEONE WITH A HOARDING PROBLEM THINKS EVERYTHING IS A PRIZED COLLECTION.
Most of us deal with clutter on a daily basis, a load of unkept washing, and a few too many dishes piled up do not indicate that you have hoarding tendencies.
Struggling to let go of items, regardless of how big or small due to an emotional connection can quickly fill a home to the point of being unable to find the floor.
