Even though I’m a Realtor and sell houses and land to people, this video encapsulates what I really want for my clients – I want for them to turn a house into their home. I love how she began right away adding light, but not just any light, the kind of light that makes her happy. Everything she added to her space was something that gave her joy.
When you buy a house and begin to fill it with stuff, go slowly, adding the pieces that give you pleasure, otherwise you will wake up one day and realize you have a bunch of stuff, but you aren’t loving your surroundings.
You wouldn’t believe how many people want to sell their homes, but what they really need to do is just declutter all their stuff, keeping the pieces they like and getting rid of the rest of the stuff.
Of course if you do want to sell your home, it’s a great time to go through everything and have a giant garage sale. Keep what you love, and get rid of the rest! If your Great Aunt gave you something and you don’t like it, take a picture with your digital camera and keep the memory without keeping the stuff.
Fill your home with love – not just stuff!
