Before Anything ~~ There’s Organizing

Has this ever happened to you?

  • Walk around the house and wonder where all the “stuff” came from
  • Find that you’ve put everything under beds and shoved in closets and drawers
  • Feel anxious when you walk in the house
  • Never feel done with chores
  • Procrastinate paying bills and reconciling accounts

How to start. . . .

  • Pick a small task, start a timer and finish it within an hour
  • Pick one day a week devoted to organizing — no more than 2 hours and write it on your calendar
  • Put on your favorite podcast, music or tv show to keep you interested in finishing
  • Hire someone to help you start
