Our Favorite Tip

October 26, 2012

Whenever anyone asks us our favorite organizing tip, we always answer (in unison)

"START SMALL"

This is the first tip from our SIMPLE Organizing Steps© mantra....every project should start out small and gain momentum!

Overwhelmed and don't know where to start?  Choosing the place to start is hard for some people - try imagining which area would give you the most peace to have cleared out, then start with a single spot. 

The place you begin might be a drawer, closet or pile of paper on the desk.  Once cleared,  move around the room, tackle another small area, and before you know it, mission accomplished!

Trouble staying on task?  Try setting an egg timer for 15 or 30 minutes at a time.  During that time you work on the project and don't leave the room!  As you find items that belong in other areas of your home or office, put them in a box and deliver them after the timer goes off!

Many people find it easier to work on organizing projects with someone who will re-inforce staying on task and can make the project more fun.  If you have a friend or relative who is willing to help, give that a try.
