The good news is, there are ways to get organized that will not help you reduce your stress but give you a good way to get started.
CREATE A GAME PLAN
Take a walk around your home to access what areas truly need organizing.
Once you have determined what the priorities are, take the time to pull out a notepad and write out an in-depth game plan, outlining what you will be doing.
Take note of the different sizes of boxes or bins you think you will need to store things properly.
If you have things you know you are going to have to get rid of, make sure you have a method readily available to have them removed from your home.
The best places to start when it comes to organizing your home, are your storage spaces.
This may require plenty of rearranging and de-cluttering, but this is a priority.
Cleaning your storage spaces first and foremost will help you later down the line when you are organizing other spaces in your home, giving you additional space to put items that seemingly have nowhere to go in the present.
Start out small by de-cluttering a junk drawer, moving on to larger spaces like closets, your garage or your basement.
Remember, one area at a time.
HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS
The highest traffic areas of your home are the next places to get started.
Choose the room that is the busiest in your home.
For many, that is the kitchen, followed by your front entrance, living rooms, and bathrooms.
These areas tend to get the most cluttered and messy, but since they are used so frequently should ideally be the least cluttered.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET ORGANIZED?
KEEP IT SIMPLE
If you find yourself getting run down, don’t try to attempt too much in a day.
In fact, spreading tasks out may simplify them for you.
There is also no shame in requesting help, working together as a team with other members of your household will make it much easier to get and stay organized.
There are so many ways to get organized, even when you don’t know where to start.
Just make sure that you have an action plan, focus on clearing out your storage spaces, pay close attention to high traffic areas and keep it simple.
In no time you will find yourself in a more organized environment.
