I recently had a client ask me – how do I stay organized? I offer lots of tips, tricks and inspiration to get organized but I can understand that that next logical question is how do I stay that way?
The first tip…and to has to be said …. Is declutter. Come on, you knew it was coming.
By significantly decluttering you reduce the amount you have to manage. Fewer clothes means less laundry. Fewer dishes means less in the sink. Minimal amount of gadgets on the kitchen counter means you can clean the kitchen easier.
You must declutter and get to a manageable amount of things. If you find a place for everything then it’s easier to put things away. If your drawers aren’t busting at the seams, you might just become that magical unicorn that washes, folds and puts away their clothes all in one day.
Once you declutter, though, you still have work to do. I call them daily tasks.
And finally – create a daily routine that has plenty of time to work on your home. Coffee in the morning? Empty the dishwasher. Set a reminder on your Alexa to do a 5 minute pick up after lunch. Do the dishes after dinner. If you create good habits, then you will see results.
I hope you have found this helpful – if so please leave a comment! Also, if you are interested in working with me, reach out via email. I offer virtual coaching to declutter and organize from anywhere in the world! And if you’re in Connecticut, I can do in person services. I’d love to work with you.
