If your New Year’s resolution is to get organized, don’t wait for a project to start, live organized right now! Even if things are cluttered around you, you can start small by creating habits that will help to keep the chaos away.
Structure Your Day: When you spend your time scattered about, you end up feeling unaccomplished. Manage your time with a plan.
Create Habits: Small habits of putting away and finishing up what you’re doing can have huge benefits in maintaining order.
Do Less: Don’t over-schedule your day. Plan for distractions. If things go smooth, you can make use of the extra time.
Be Charitable: Having a good cause to donate household items you don’t use will help get the clutter out while helping someone else in need. Regularly go through your things and weed out the excess.
Create A Place: If you have 15 minutes to straighten up, but don’t know where to put anything, that 15 minutes is wasted. Having a place for everything is essential to living organized.
