As a professional organizer and a mom, I especially feel the pain for a mom who struggles with organization. It can affect all parts of their life. Being organized is a skill set that I believe everyone can and should have. When you’re organized, even if you have a busy life, you’re more likely to be spending your time doing the things that are important to you, including activities that will help move you towards your goals.
On the flip side, when you’re not very organized and have a lot of stuff to do, you don’t want to be spending your valuable free time (usually on the weekend) sorting through papers, looking for misplaced items, clearing clutter and dealing with an excessive amount of things that you rarely use. Think back to the days when you didn’t own a lot of things. Life was probably a lot simpler wasn’t it?
What one thing can you do today to be more organized? Declutter a messy drawer? Clean out the pantry? Organize some toys with your kids? Bring a professional organizer in for a consultation? Organize your time better?
You could also plan a declutter day. A declutter day is a day devoted to decluttering and organizing one area or one room.
Feel free to share one thing you would like to do to get one step closer to a more organized life.
