Let’s be honest, we don’t like rules. If you are serious about home organization, there are just three simple rules to follow:
- Touch It Once. This rule will save you time. When you place your hands of something, it goes to its final destination. Clothing gets put in the laundry basket or on a hanger, instead of on your bed or chair to be dealt with later. Paperwork is filed, discarded or completed as it enters your home. You are busy and managing your home is tough. Dealing with each item as you come across it, will save you time.
- Keep Like Things Together. Sweaters with sweaters. Shirts with shirts. One shelf for snacks and a shelf for cans. Designating a space for everything and keeping like items in their space will help you manage your items and save you time finding exactly what you need.
- Organize One Space At A Time. Work on one small space at a time in set increments as you have time. It might only be for fifteen or twenty minutes, but the key is to get something organized everyday. Break larger projects into manageable mini-projects.
Getting it done is the key. One small step at a time.
Following these simple rules every day will help keep your home clutter free and peaceful. Organizing is a process, not a destination. Top Shelf Home Organizing can help you on your journey.
