Organization seems to go in cycles around here. But by the next time the cycle rolls around, the previous round is back to square one of disorganization. Granted we have a lot of people living in this house, 7 to be exact (not to mention 2 dogs), and each one has their own stuff . We purge and regularly donate items in good condition to our local Helping Hands which helps a bit. When I see areas that need to be organized, but instead of seeing just one area, I tend to lump all of the areas of need together and sometimes suffer from Analysis Paralysis. I have thoughts like "I can't get it all done - it's too much!" or " I will wait until I have more time". I think one problem is that I start a large or in depth project and have to stop after a short time to pick up kids or make it to a meeting. Then when I come back it, it feels like I have only made a bigger mess. My motivation is out the window. Can anyone else relate? I will set a few small goals this week such as:
1. Get my office and paperwork filed and organized.
2. Go through my pantry and organize one shelf per day.
3. Clean out my truck (even under the seats).
That covers three major areas for me, the office, kitchen and my second home, the truck.
If you are an organized person, please feel free to post tips and advice - I could always use it!
Have a blessed and organized day!
