2024 is going to be the year of organization for everything in my life. Also it’s going to be the year of accountability for myself but let’s start start with the organization piece.
My life is an absolute shit show most of the time and if I get two minutes to myself I generally enjoy sitting around and doing absolutely nothing. But my life is in chaos and when things are a mess around me it makes me feel overwhelmed. So here we are feeling completely overwhelmed with the space that I am living in. Since this is the year or organization; I am ready to organize my life so I decided on these five things to help organize my life.
5 Tips to Organize your Life
Make a list
In order to take on organizing my life, I needed to make a list of all the things that needed organizing. This included the fridge, my closest, the girl’s dressers, the laundry room, the garage, you get the idea. Having a list of all the places in my home that needed organization was key to actually getting organized.
I plan to start slow and work on one area at a time in order to not get overwhelmed by all that needs to be done. If that means it takes me months to get fully organized then so be it.
For me this meant getting items that would help with organization. Containers for the fridge, dividers for the dresser drawers and totes. So many totes. You get check out my list of organization items HERE.
When I say declutter, I mean actually get rid of things. Throw stuff away that you no longer need or use. I know it is tempting to hang onto things tht you think you will use at some point but the truth is, you probably won’t. Just get rid of it now.
The most important step is to just start. Working slowly and on one area at a time helps with that in order to not become so overwhelmed. Take an hour a day or even every other day to focus on organizing helps keep the tasks more manageable. I took on my fridge the other day and it took me less then an hour and it was a complete mess. You can check out the video of my doing it HERE.
