Enabling the Decluttering Movement
At Artifcts, we know that not all "stuff" has meaning. Some things enter our lives, get shelved, boxed, stashed. Some things just help us make a cozy, livable, or "us" home. And stuff accumulates. But the rest, the rest has meaning, and objects cannot speak for us. Just ask these garage tools! Our team is focused on making it simple and fun to capture the meaning behind the objects of our lives. By doing that, we can help reduce the emotional burden, energy drain, and general chaos that physical objects around us can impose.
Last month we published an interview on ARTIcles with a home organization professional that clearly struck a chord. We heard a resounding, "Been there!" message and the click as one of the superpowers of Artifcts fell into place: Organize and declutter without guilt.
We are joining forces with the National Association of Productivity and Organizing (NAPO) Professionals as well as the local NAPO-Austin, Texas chapter, to help people through the organization process when you will need to know why you are keeping something (and then "organize that") or send it on to its next home. Each of those objects is a potential Artifct with a story, history, or meaning to capture whether you're holding onto it or not.
We invite you to consider how Artifcts can help organize, declutter, and downsize so that you hold onto memories, not just objects.
