Organizing Made Simple – 3 principles of organizing

My 3 principles of organizing.

1. Make time to do it. Schedule time on your calendar like you would a doctors appointment. It could be as little as 20 minutes or as much as 2 hours or a whole day with a friend or the family.

2. Drop a perfectionist attitude. If you don’t have an organizational system or your current one does not work, start small. Don’t be intimidated if you can’t make it perfect. Often our desire to be perfect interferes with our ability to be good enough and prevents us from getting started. Take on just one area, a desk drawer, just your shoes, your success will be motivation to keep going.

3. Get started organizing at home with your stuff. Going to the store to buy containers or other organizational tools may provide inspiration but is not likely to get you organized. Stay home & go through your stuff first. Once you have categorized your items, you can go to the store and purchase organizational tools that fit your stuff.

Good luck getting started.  Send me a message if you have any questions, please share your challenges and successes.
