Organization can be hard when you have a lot of space to work with and no idea where to start. Even more challenging is when you feel like the space you have isn’t enough. With so many belongings it is easy to get overwhelmed with trying to organize and feeling defeated. This is usually the point where most people give up on their storage problems. Whether it’s not enough space, too many belongings, or just plain frustration, it’s important to remember that it can be done and organization is possible.
Follow these simple tips and soon you’ll be on your way to a more organized, defined space!
1. Pick a Starting Point
There will always be that one area you want to tackle first but it is easily to get distracted by the rest of the room. If you are working on cleaning out your closet and looking to organize your things, pick a corner of the closet or the room and begin. It can be difficult to stay on task and you may worry about the rest of the room, but it is important to choose one spot. You’ll be making progress before you know it!
2. Take Your Time
It may seem like you want to rush through and get the whole room done in one day, but this is nearly impossible unless you want to drive yourself crazy! Even if you are only able to work on your area for an hour a day you’ll be amazed at how far you will get. In a week’s time, you will definitely be feeling better about your space.
3. Donate, Donate, Donate
Letting go of old things can be hard and the thought that you’ll wear it again so you should hold onto it will most likely cross your mind. It’s important to remember that you will probably not wear these items and they just take up space that you could be using for other things. Creating a pile of clothes to donate is good for you and good for the community as well!
