Spring brings out the creative and energetic side in many of us. We are inspired to start new projects and begin our spring organizing. Make sure to set aside adequate time for your task. Unrealistic expectations may sabotage your entire project, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
Enlist the help of a friend or family member, this will keep you motivated and as an added bonus will get the job done twice as fast. Set aside an area for sorting and create a keep, donate and trash pile. Start the purge – make tough decisions as you evaluate each item. Do you really need it? Does it still serve a purpose?
Remember that you are trying to de-clutter and create more space, so let go of all unneeded clutter! Sort and categorize like items together, store everything in appropriate storage systems/shelving and don’t forget to label! And if you need help…just ask!
