Organizing projects – 5 Ways to approach a challenging organizing project

  1. Get help – Hire a Personal Professional Organizer or a nonjudgmental friend or family member. Hire an accountability partner (for maintenance)
  2. Make a plan – Set realistic timelines for yourself. Schedule time to work on each of the steps in your organizing project.
  3. Make a list of resources and supplies that you will need for your organizing project. Organizing tips: Don’t buy organizing tools until after you purge items that you are getting rid of. Gather basic supplies such as trash bags for donations, bins for trash/recycling, and markers are helpful when you get started.
  4. Break challenging organizing project into smaller projects.
  5. Stop, observe, think – what is the 1 thing that would make a difference? Do just that and stop. Maintain the organized space it for at least a week then identify the 2nd thing and do that. Continue if this is successful. Don’t give up!
