A few thoughts on organization – 4 tips for getting mentally prepared:
1>> Organizing isn’t about being completely clean and perfect every hour of every day. It is about developing a system that works for you and going back to the system when things get really messy – like a reset button for your home.
2>> If you use it, it will get messy. Depending on how often you use this drawer, closet or room, the more likely it is going to get messy. Depending on how chaotic you can handle things between reset buttons, is how often you should plan on organizing. It could be daily, weekly, monthly or seasonally.
3>> Organizing is not something you’ll be completely done with. It’s like cleaning, laundry or the dishes. You need to plan on putting some time into it so that you can reap from the benefits of having a system.
4>> Organizing and cleaning go hand and hand. If you can create a system for where things go and how often you put them away, then it makes cleaning a lot easier too.
