27 Feb How To Get Organized- Charleston, SC
In order to get organized you need time, patience, and an understanding of what it means to be organized. It’s not just throwing everything under the bed for the illusion of cleanliness; the key to get organized is assigning every item in your house a place and making sure that clutter is minimal. The first step to getting organized is getting rid of this clutter and stuff that you just don’t need.
How to Get Organized
Once you get rid of things you don’t need anymore, the second step to get organized can begin. But since you can’t fully organize your space without first throwing out, donating, or selling some stuff, here are some tips on how to complete step one:
- Think about the next time you’ll use it. A lot of the time, people keep stuff around for a “just in case” scenario. If you can’t think of a way that you’re going to use this item in the next month or so, it’s probably time to get rid of it.
- Don’t throw everything away immediately. Instead of getting rid of clutter right away, it’s beneficial to see your space fully organized and decluttered. Once you see what your space will look like, you’ll be more likely to stick with organization and it’ll make throwing away old things easier.
- Start small. It’s better to start with a single drawer or a small cabinet than to tackle your walk-in closet first. Once you’ve handled and organized smaller areas, you’ll be more motivated to move on to the larger spaces in your home.
- Procrastination is key. It sounds wrong, but really you’ll be more motivated to declutter a space if you’re busy procrastination something else. If you’re really dreading completing another task, that’s the perfect time to start getting organized.
