Are You Scared of Getting Organized?
As a professional organizer, I understand how overwhelming taking on an organizing project can be, but let me assure you that it is well worth it! In the end, one must realize that getting and staying organized is more of a lifestyle change than anything and it takes commitment and self-discipline. With that said, I do have a few simple steps that will get you started on the organizational path and hopefully inspire you to keep going. Check them out below:
The key to keeping yourself from getting overwhelmed is to start small – Go through your entire house and throw out (recycle) the following items:
- Empty wrappers and packages
- Expired coupons
- Outdated magazines, flyers, and other mail
- Spoiled or expired food items (check the fridge and the pantry)
- Expired medication
- Rusty or broken tools and utensils
- Socks with no mates
- Anything else that is broken or in disrepair
I suggest setting a timer for ten to twenty minutes, once a day, for eight days to get the list above completed. You won’t believe how big of a difference it will make and how inspired and happy you will feel.
