Creating Space Out of Your Mess
Tackle the most displeasing task first.
Work the area that drives you bonkers before clearing out anyplace else. Your anxiety will diminish, and you'll be more motivated to continue.
Stick to routines
Do things the same way every time: Put your mail in one place, your keys in one place. When you need them, you will find them.
Store like with like
For example, contain all electronics such as cords, cables, disks, etc. in the same space, drawer or labeled tote.
Purge before buying containers
Slimming down your stuff first will help you see your new space and give you better judgment in buying correct size and quantity of containers. Also I suggest you measure your space to prevent aggravation and
A place for everything, and everything in its place
To stay organized anywhere, be mindful of everything you
bring in through the door. Everything needs to have a home.
Label, label, label containers
I.D. the contents of containers so you know what’s inside.
Clearly label file folders.
Label edges inside drawers or the inside cabinet doors for easy find.
Use Brother P-Touch label maker or use labels and a sharpie.
Make time for the mess
Avoid creating mountains of mess in your living space by picking
up after yourself or doing a task.
Fifteen minutes each day is enough time to do one of the following:
1. Fold a load of laundry and put it away.
2. Sort the stack of mail and file the bills.
3. Clean out a drawer.
