Organizing Your Spouse, Partner, or Mate

Living with someone that doesn't share your same organizational values? Been there done that!!

So what should you do? First off..don't ever tell them that you are going to organize them. You don't want to see the middle finger or REBELLION.

A little manipulation goes a long way. Formulate a plan and keep it to yourself. Break it down into mini projects. Instead of telling your partner its organizing day, carefully pick your verbage.

"Honey, I need you for 20 minutes to help me go through these boxes."

When you give your partner a specific time frame, they are more apt to help. There is a great comfort level knowing there is a beginning to an end.

Choose a few small projects per week. You will be amazed at what you can get done. Be patient!! Every bag that leaves is a battle won!
