Whether due to a lack of time, ability, or inclination, staying organized can be difficult. In today’s world, people extend themselves by working long hours, participating in extra-curricular activities for themselves or family members, time obligations, and so much more. Often, the task of organization slowly gets pushed further and further down the To Do list until eventually it no longer gets added to the list.
When people finally realize that action needs to be taken, they have two options: hire a professional or do it themselves. Hiring a professional is time efficient but depending on the space, can become expensive as costs range from $40-$125 per hour. Doing it yourself is possible by following these three steps:
- Step 1: Create more chaos: The first step to organizing is to pull everything out of the space to be organized and place in organized piles (by color, use, type, etc.).
- Step 2: Purge: Then once everything is laid out and placed into organized piles, items are pulled out that are to be trashed, donated, or sold.
- Step 3: Organize: Finally, once belongings have been purged, it’s time to place the “items to keep” back into an assigned space.
