Getting organized is one of the top 5 New Year’s resolutions. If you haven’t started taking control of the clutter yet this year then maybe you don’t know where to start. Start by breaking down your organizing efforts into areas such as a closet, cabinet or drawer, to make the task easier to manage. Then place yourself in the purge mindset. Commit to purge what has not been used in the past year, does not serve your current needs, or is broken. Use meditation to help; visualize yourself working through the space.
There are many books about getting organized, but reading about organizing and actually organizing are two different actions. Jumping in and doing the job can be more satisfying. However, many people get overwhelmed with just the thought of working through the space and the clutter, especially when it is another project to add to that never ending to do list.
Consider hiring a professional organizer. These professionals will map out a plan of action that is tailor made for your needs and work with you. Think of it as mapping out a road trip bringing you decreased stress and peace of mind knowing where you’re headed. Plus, organizers will be honest with you about your clutter. Professional organizers typically love mapping out a plan of action and organizing spaces to bring balance back into others lives.
