Hosting Easter? Tips to Get Organized Now
If you’re hosting the holiday, use that as your motivation to get organized now. Planning and preparing to host guests in your home will inspire you to get some projects done around the house. If it’s DIY projects you’ve been putting off or getting clutter out of corners and closets, now if the time to get it done with the end goal of Easter.
It’s not too late to come up with a plan to tackle some organizing projects. Here are some tips:
Carve out time: You may think that you need several free days to tackle a big organizing projet, but the truth is, you just need a starting point. If your schedule only allows you 30 minutes, take it! Carve out snippets of time. It’s better to get started than to never begin.
Have a plan: Decide how you want to use the space, what’s going to happen with the stuff you’re keeping and what to do with the things you no longer want. Having clear direction will allow you to be more productive when you have the time to get started.
Don’t look at the big picture: When it comes to organizing a larger project, or an overwhelming space, looking at the big picture will only sabatoge your progress. When our expert organizers come to work with you, we like to start in the toughest spot to help you push through the grit. If you’re working on your own, start in a place that feels comfortable so you can just dig in and make some progress.
Deal with one item at a time: You can only make one decision at a time. When you’re sorting through a big project, look and make a decision about one item at a time.
Keep at it: The hardest part is sticking with it to completion. With Easter as your finish goal, there’s good motivation to get it done quickly!
