Organizing your home will bring you different benefits than it might for someone else with the same goals, but with completely different outcomes.
First off, you need to know, to organize your home is different for you than it is for someone else. Some people don’t have a lot of clutter and junk but need to know how to maintain organization and have a place for their stuff.
On the other hand, some homes have piles upon piles… a big mess, and still think it’s just a matter of needing storage.
When, in fact, storage is the last thing you need. The first step is getting rid of clutter, rather than adding more storage just to keep more stuff.
The thing is, once you start organizing your home, you’ll see how great and real the benefits are:
- It’s reducing stress by having order and discipline.
- It’s having more space by keeping clutter out for good.
- It’s simplifying the way you live at home by creating useful systems that work for you personally.
- It’s a way of being on time, and not feeling the strain of running against the clock.
Personally, I like to start any organization by writing the things that I need to do. Having a checklist will make you see the task as a whole but in a less overwhelming manner. Breaking the task makes things easier than how it actually looks. Feel free to download the Organization Checklist that I created to help you start your organization.
Quite simply, when you finally start to make the simple changes of organization, it all adds up to give you more room to breathe so you can enjoy your family and friends more.
Being organized isn’t a matter of being rich or poor, young or old. We were never taught organization in school and, in fact, we’re taught to multi-task and go in too many directions at once.
Being organized makes life easier. It’s not going to make you rich (well it may, depending on the amount of clutter you have) but it will certainly save you money by avoiding duplicate purchases and late bills.
It’s not going to make you any younger, but it will certainly give you more time to do things you might think you don’t have time to do.
Being organized isn’t going to give you a bigger house, but it will clear clutter and open up some space so you’ll feel like you have a bigger house because there will be less congestion and “stuff” all over the place.
There may seem like there is a lot to getting organized but with a little dedication, time, and consistency you will add so much value to your home.
If you feel like you need help with being organized, you can schedule a virtual home organizing session with me here. I would love to work with you to start the process of decluttering your home. Let’s get started!
Hugs and Love, Nikki.
