Let’s Get Organized

With the start of the new year, and all the hype with Marie Kondo. I thought we could share some tips for decluttering your life and home.
Start small, one space at a time.
Maybe in your children’s closet or your own closet. The children’s toys, or even the pantry.
These questions below are the perfect way to begin.

Ask Yourself:
Have I used or worn this in the last year?
Am I holding on to this for sentimental value?
Do I have a realistic plan to use this?
Does it fit me or my living space?
Am I holding on to this broken item to fix in the future?
Do I have a similar item that serves the same purpose?
Let your answers help decide what you do with each item.

Organize with Bins & Labels:

Put Items Back:
Train yourself to put things back in their spot.
Once, you create a new home for something, remember to return it there after you are finished using it.

Declutter with the Present in Mind:
If you are holding on to something for “just in case” or if you think you will use it in future- it’s time to get rid of it.
In order to keep the clutter under control, you must also be thinking in the present mind.

Schedule Your Donation Drop off:
Once you make your piles Keep/Trash/Donate,
make sure you take care of them right away. Neatly contained clutter is still clutter.

If it seems to be too overwhelming…

It will help to take it one day at a time!
