What “something” can you do now?

Thanks to Cindy Bernstein of Aim4Order for this episode of Tips from the Pros on organizing projects you can do now.

If I had $1 for every time I heard someone say they were going to tackle large decluttering/organizing projects on “the next snow day” — I’d have a whole lot of dollars!! 

We actually had a real snow day recently and I wondered who was able to actually tackle long awaited projects. I know that I didn’t have much to show on my snow day other than shoveling!

Before winter ends and before our spring gardeners are off and running, what “something” can you do NOW so that you:

  1. feel more comfortable having friends or family over .
  2. spend less time feeling guilty about what you “should” be doing.
  3. feel proud of yourself.
  4. create more peace in your home.

Just in case you need some ideas, here are a few:

  1. Dig out some old boxes of pictures and see what you can toss or share with others.
  2. Go through a file cabinet and get rid of expired insurance policies, investment brochures and other generic literature that is outdated.
  3. Go through your medical file and toss appointment reminders, brochures, post op instructions and directions to doctors’ offices.
  4. Go through your sock drawer and toss the ones you no longer wear. Let go of your orphan socks.
  5. Look at your bookshelves and consider letting go of paperback books, old magazines, National Geographic magazines, cookbooks and anything that’s covered in dust which is nature’s way of validating that you are not using these items.

Once again, I don’t want to overwhelm anyone with a lengthy list. Pick something you can do now and see how you do. Remember that 15 minutes is a good amount of time for starters. Better to want to come back for more than quit by overdoing it the first time.

I’d love to hear what you accomplish before the end of Winter. You’ve got this!!!
