Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
Time to get down to basics. Here is one way to clear out what you don't need without having to worry about purging too quickly.
Much like the idea for the kitchen, this little trick works great for the wardrobe.
So much of what we bring into our homes has packaging we ultimately have to deal with. Finding a home for this in our kitchens can be a challenge, so I suggest creating a disposal center in the garage, making it easy to deposit things into as you come and go.
It is much easier to keep things current when you can discard things you no longer need quickly and efficiently. To help you and your family members discard items that are no longer needed, set up a donation center in your house.
Gadgets and cables can get out of control fast in a world where technology is everywhere. If you're tripping over cables and have gadgets stuffed into every available corner it's time for a clean up.
One room or one space at a time
When you are organizing it may seem like a good idea to attempt to organize two or more room at the same time, but this is not always productive. It's best if you can focus your energy on one room, or one space at a time. Make sure you give yourself enough time to work in that space as Rome was not built in a day. Your big organizing projects will likely not be completed in a day, so be sure to continue to schedule time to work on your spaces as needed until they are finished.
One in, one out
I know that you have heard this before. The old 'One In, One Out' rule. Employ this rule to keep your stuff under control. If your shoes wear out and you must buy a new pair to replace them, go ahead and make sure you throw the old one out. If you are buying a new item, clothes, shoes, kitchen utensils, etc., the old one must be donated or discarded.
