Is Decluttering/Organizing with Your Spouse Making You Angry?

During a recent organizing appointment with a couple, the wife got frustrated and angry with her husband. Awkward!!

She walked out of the garage where we were working, and chilled in the living room for a while. When she was ready, she rejoined us.

If you find yourself getting angry with your spouse while decluttering or organizing, follow my client's example. Take a break. Wait until you've both calmed down. Take a step back and talk about your differences in a neutral manner. 

Usually differences come about because people look at things from different perspectives. Neither may be right or wrong, they're just different. Try to be open-minded and see things from another point of view. 

Your spouse may have a better idea! Imagine that!
