Cut the clutter and enjoy the bulk of the New Year by following professional organizer Amanda LeBlanc's top tips for restoring order to your household. Keep reading for those, then catch her in action on The Amandas tonight at 8/7c only on Style.
Prioritize. You can't tackle the whole house at once, so where do you want to start? A great way to decide is to think about what space bothers you the most, or the one that affects your family the greatest.
Be Realistic. Getting organized takes time. Don't try to tackle a whole room in one day! Break your projects down into small manageable tasks.
Create a plan. Think about the steps you need to take in a space. Write out the steps and take great joy in checking each one off your list!
Tell a friend. Doing anything with a partner is always more enjoyable than doing it alone! Ask a friend to help you get organized by being a check-in person or someone to come and help you purge!
And last PURGE, PURGE, PURGE! Let's face it; you can't fit 41 gallons of water in a 40 gallon tub! This means that no matter how much you want to be organized, if you have more than will fit in your home, it simply can't be done. So, get rid of the excess and get organized!
