Getting Organized Is Your Worst Enemy: 4 Ways To Defeat It.





Picture Source: S. Roberts Lukowsky 

Imagine that you enter your home and everything is in it's place. All clothes are washed and put away. Beds are made and with perfectly pressed sheets and smells of crisp linens fill the environment. Everything looks clean and pristine. All items are neatly in their place. No dust can be found anywhere. This is a home that you definitely want to come home to.

But....

What happens when you go home every evening? Are there clothes on the floor, or thrown over a chair? Are you tripping over shoes and toys as you walk in a room? Has the staircase become a collection of last weeks clothes?

 Look around and ask yourself the following questions:

How do all the rooms in your home look?

What feeling do you get when you arrive home?


How does your room, bathroom, hallway, or dining room smell like?



What sounds do you here as you walk through the house?





As you look around, you feel stress, anxiety, and an overwhelming feeling that you cannot do this. Instead of tackling the issue today, you decide to deal with the disorganization another day. Soon that day moves to another day, then another, and another.

If this sounds like how you feel, then read on. We understand the frustrations of having to go to work, come home, cook dinner, and stare at a home that needs CPR - fast.

Here are 4 ways that you can easily defeat that mess and get that well organized home today.

1. Start with one room - (your gathering place.)



Shop Now 


2. Pick one item that is overwhelming. If that is clothes or papers start with that.


3. Pick up and separate all of the clothes into categories and put in it's respective space. (keep, laundry, purge, donate) 


4. Once every item (clothing) has been sorted and put away, start the process all over again.

Soon, you would have begun cleaning and organizing your space.


I understand that knowing where to start can be a challenge. Taking the necessary steps to get organized is the victory. Not taking any action, results in your space remaining the same. So, take a baby step towards your organization goals. Download the "My Organization Plan" to help get you on your way.

Ask yourself these questions if you have trouble getting rid of your things:


Does the item serve a purpose?

Does the item contribute to my overall well being?

If it does not contribute to my joy, or wellbeing, why am I holding onto it?

Don't feel intimidated by what others are doing. Your are in a lane of your own, so always remember,  You Got This!!!


Be well,

Bathroom Closet 2.0 - The Next Step


Bathroom Closet 2.0  - The Next Step !

By
Suzie



Did you know that when your bathroom closet is organized you can increase the time that you get ready for work. 

According to Benjamin Franklin, "for every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned." That's some serious time! 

Organization With Suzie, LLC 2018
Imagine when you get up and have a shower, fresh towels are available, soap is just an arms length away, all of your razors, and hair accessories are where you can find them, and even your deodorant hasn't walked away, nor is the cap missing from the top! 



                                                                               

This is truly the way to live. With an organized closet, success is bound to happen. But, what happens when the closet is filled with clutter. The struggle is definitely real when your trying to find what your looking for and it's getting close to the time that you have to leave for work. 

Once you finally get in the shower, what do you feel when you reach for your towel?  - air. Your towel is missing off of the rack and no one is available to hand you another one. 

This was my dilemma before I took the needed time to get my life in order. See the video on how I organized my bathroom closet.




The steps below propelled the bathroom closet from bake to cake in less than 90 minutes. 

1. Take everything out of the closet.   

2. Separate each item by category.

3. Purge items that are expired, empty, or not usable.

4. Clean inside the closet from top to bottom.

5. Measure the shelves and floor for excess product storage containers.

6. If storage containers are not desires, map out where you would like to place your items.

7. Do a dry run and see how the space will look with your items/ storage containers.

8. Label your shelves and/or storage systems.

9. Place your items in the designated space. 

10. Choose a day in the week that you will go through the items in the closet to purge and maintain the space.

For additional assistance download the My Organization Plan, and the Goal Planner printables. With these tools, you can start organizing with confidence. Transform your bathroom closet from ughhhh to YESSSSS!, in just a small amount of time.
