Three Top Tips For Staying Organized

You can do it. You can have a friend do it. You can hire a professional organizer to do it. The cold hard facts are that you will never stay organized unless you implement a plan to keep your space that way. Here are some helpful tips to keep your home or office organized.

1. Everything must have a home. Anything that is brought into your home must have a space of its own. Time and time again I see things that are just sitting around. When something new comes in your space, make sure you find a place to put it.

2. Don’t over stuff or over categorize. Many people feel they are saving space by filling up the cabinets or drawers to maximum capacity. If you have one or two categories in them, this is okay. When you start putting a lot of different things in them, the space becomes undefined and mish mash. You don’t have clarity!!

3. Daily Maintenance!! This is the key to staying organized. No home, including mine, will stay organized without upkeep. In order to prevent the build of of stuff which turns into clutter, you need to practice daily tasks. These tasks include:

* Washing dishes or putting them in the dishwasher
* Putting away clothes
* Going through the mail
* General paper management
* Unpacking bags from trips or meetings
* Taking out the trash or recycling
* Putting away other misc items your have taken out

If you follow these tips on a regular basis, you will be able to keep your home under control!!
