The New Year brings us hope, renewal, and a chance to do what we did not do last year. If you made any resolutions for the New Year (or still have some left over from last year), now is the time to go forth and accomplish the goals you set out to meet.
However, life usually gets busy with kids, work, and households to maintain and before you know it another year has passed. Adding a little organization to your life may give you the extra time to meet some of those resolutions.
Getting organized doesn’t have to happen all at once. Start by incorporating a new organizing tip every month or choose a small area to organize. Organizing is also not a one size fits all, so choose tips or ideas that you feel will work for you and your family. Give this new organizing idea or project two or three weeks. If you find that it is solving a problem and your household benefits from it, continue on. When you are ready, go ahead and incorporate a new idea into your daily routine or start organizing another area.
You will soon find that a little organizing here and there will reduce stress and save you time.
Just remember, getting organized does not mean you have to aim for perfection. You know organization is working when you are surrounded by less clutter, you feel less stressed, and you have more time to spend with family and friends.
