If you really want to get organized, ask yourself these questions to determine the areas of your life where organization will make the most difference.
Where do I waste time?
Every morning do you stare at your stuffed closet for 15 minutes saying, “I have nothing to wear” and spend time frantically searching for your favorite sweater? Set a goal to reorganize your closet so you can pick out an outfit in 1 minute. Use the time you save to catch up on sleep or spend more time with your family.
Where do I waste money?
Do you rack up late fees because you don’t pay your bills on time? Set a goal of creating a monthly routine to pay your bills. Treat yourself to a reward with the money you save.
Where does disorganization cause me stress?
Do you feel overwhelmed when you come home after a long day at work to a cluttered, chaotic living room? Resolve to “create a place for everything and keep everything in its place'. Savor relaxing on the couch each night.
Where do I need more space?
Has your dining room table become so piled with papers and crafts projects that you can’t eat at it? Set a goal to remove everything that doesn’t belong, and gain back a room in your home. Enjoy a great meal with family and friends.
