Happy Tuesday, all! Raise your hand if you want to get organized, but you just don’t know where to start?!? If this is your dilemma, I am here to tell you you’re not alone. Often when things get disorganized, it leads to feeling overwhelmed and you simply don’t know where to begin. Ask yourself the following questions:
I.What room do you or your family spend the most time in? You want the room that you spend the most time in to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, not overwhelmed and stressed by the cabinet that you know is containing the avalanche that would happen if you were to open it.
II.What room do you feel most frustrated/overwhelmed when you walk into it? While organizing every other room is good too, it would be like cutting off one head of the beast. Tackling this room, the one that makes you feel most frustrated, is like killing the beast.
III.What gives you the most joy? Family? A certain hobby? Cooking? What room does this translate to in your home? This goes along with question number one. Let yourself enjoy what brings you happiness with a clean organized space. If you love to cook but you can never find anything in your kitchen it gets to be a stressful situation quickly.
Once you’ve identified the room, use the 5 Steps to Achieving a More Organized Space Blog to start the organizing process. If you’re having trouble knowing what to keep and what to get rid of, take a look at this previous blog post.
So, what’s stopping you now? Stop avoiding it – Take Charge. Opt for Organization. Be brave!! And if you don’t want to, call me 😉 Have a wonderful day!!
