You know it’s time to get organized if this sounds like something you say. Now where did I put that silly little gadget?
I know it’s somewhere in here. Why can’t I ever find anything I’m looking for? There’s just too much junk and clutter in this space. How can I possibly get organized to the point I can find what I want?
How to Get Organized
The first thing you need to get organized is to relax. You don’t have to drown in all the clutter and lose your mind to have a well organized space. Now lets see what all the mess is about.
First take a visual inventory of the space you want to get organized. Do you have the right shelving space necessary to store all the stuff? If not you will need to be sure you have it before you can get organized to the point where everything has a spot. This will not only save you space, but it will also save your sanity and your time.
Next remove everything from the space you are working on. If you are wanting to organize your garage, it doesn’t mean you have to empty the entire contents into the driveway. Simply remove all the clutter from one small space or section of the space so you can see what you have.
Now put your new shelving in place. Okay, you’re making progress. Before you put anything on your new shelves, throw out all the junk an items you would call trash. If you want to hold a garage sale, put those items in a separate pile.
The items left are the ones you want to keep and the things you need. Put these items on the shelves in a manner that makes sense to you. Items you seldom use go to the top and back. Those items you use frequently are in the easy to reach places.
See how easy it is to get organized when you approach it with a relaxed feeling knowing you can do it. To get organized is the first step in keeping your hair and keeping the frustration down and removing the clutter from your life.
