Sometimes you need something simple to do. Sometimes you need to get in the groove. Sometimes you just need guidance to get started.
On our show, 7 Reasons You Get Disorganized, we share 3 simple things you MUST do RIGHT now if you want to get in the GROOVE and start organizing.
Walk through your home and find 5 things you can get rid of. Stick them in a bag. Write DONATE on it.
Can’t find 5 things? Look in your socks and get rid of one pair. Go to your plastic cups and find one to purge. Look under your bathroom sink or in your makeup drawer. Is there one thing you haven’t used in the last year?
Don’t stop at 3. Find 5!! Do that again tomorrow and when the bag is full drop it by Goodwill!
Put 5 things away that are out of their homes.
Sometimes it feels good to get something done. Even as simple as getting things put away. Find 5 things that are not put away and put them away now. Do you have other people living in your house? Have them put 5 things away, too.
If the items do not have a home make one. You can always change it later but just assign a home for now. Tape a label there so everyone knows.
Schedule 5 – 15 minute organizing sessions on your calendar.
Nothing gets done unless we put it on our calendar. So put 15 minute organizing on 5 different time slots on your calendar. If you do not know what to organize just do the first two things – donate 5 things and put 5 things away – until you are ready to begin an organizing project.
Otherwise spend 15 minutes using our signature organizing method – END CLTR – to organize…one space at a time!!
