The BEST Organization System Ever!
Are you feeling the need to "get it organized"? To purge? To make your environment attractive and functional? I don't know about you, but when my house is out of order, my brain feels out of order! Maybe its the ADD but I just can't seem to focus on things when I am in chaos! And sometimes that chaos and lack of focus make it extremely had to get started...because WHERE do I start?? Here are a few things that work for me and then I will tell you THE BEST Organization system EVER!! What works for me: I ask myself the following questions- 1. What area is causing me the most amount of frustration? 2. Can it be solved/organized/beautified quickly? 3. Can a few changes help until I have time for a complete OrganizeDesign? 4. Schedule time for an OrganizeDesign session. For me it kind of becomes a triage way of scheduling. What ever area is making me CrAzY, that is where I start. Mail and clutter on the kitchen island is a source of chaos for me. This is something I try to take care of every day or every other day. Knowing the areas that bug you the most is huge in maintaining sanity! A few things I do always: 1.MAKE YOUR BED! I am amazed at the number of people that do not do this simple but powerful act. This 2 minute activity will instantly make your room look more pleasing. When you are ready to retire at the end of the day, you will be glad you did. 2. If you buy something, donate something. This helps to keep things organized. 3. If you don't love it, get rid of it. If you love a sale like I do, this is very important! And finally THE BEST Organization System EVER is...the one that works for you!! If it is not something that you are going to do, then it is not effective for you. It is not a good system for you. And remember organization and style may only be important to you! If that is your reality, embrace it and make it happen! Lastly remember the best accessory to any home is organization!
