Organized Living 101
The month of January is designated as Get Organized Month. The new year is a great time to sit down and decide on the areas you want to tackle and develop a plan to get it done. To get you started I am sharing the benefits of organizing a specific area in your home and a strategy to tackle those piles. I believe this will motivate as well as positively impact your life as you create a home and space that is clutter free. So let’s get started on your journey to living an organized life.
Benefit– When your entrance is organized you reduce stress and eliminate frustration because you find items faster as you are heading out the door.
Organizing Strategy– Establish a place for your keys, purse and shoes if you remove them upon entering your home. Also make sure the coat closet only has items that are used.
Benefit-When your kitchen and pantry are organized you don’t waste food ( save money) because you forgot you purchased items that got lost on the shelf.
Organizing Strategy-Use cabinet organizers to maximize space and stack items to make them visible, label items and store like items ( baking, cereal, snacks) together.
Benefit– The benefit of an organized closet is that you can get dressed and coordinate your outfits faster because you will be able to see items better.

Benefits-Do you know that when your bedroom is organized you will sleep better? Clutter does impact sleep and your health which is a reason why you should keep your bedroom organized.
