How To Get Organized like the Pro's

"Following these few simple rules will help you get organized"

  • Learn how to walk away from items you don't need.  It could be a sweater in the department store or a buy one get one free item in the grocery store.  Just because you can doesn't always mean you should.  And, always ask yourself two questions "Do I have a storage space for this item?" or "Do I have anything like this already?"

  • Schedule regular times yearly to de-clutter your home and once you pick the time don't let anything or anyone change it.  Rather than wait until an industrious mood strikes have a de-cluttering routine in place whether it's spending 25 minutes sorting files after work or tackling your office desktop on Saturday afternoon. 

  • Be willing to ask for help.  a individual who really wants to be organized will suffer a little shame to get there space organized.  The individual who is willing to get help will always be organized.

  • Don't put labels on things that are miscellaneous.  You put a bunch of things into a file or box and write this catchall across the front.  "But within a week you've forgotten what's in there an because it's in a box you don't really worry about it.  Instead, you need to sort the items into specific groups such as electric bill, grocery, etc. and get rid of them.  This way you never have to go back to this box later.
