(in no particular order)
you sometimes picture yourself in a white room with white minimalist furniture?
And no one to mess it up?
The dishes are getting easier aren't they?
Spend 5 minutes in the living room picking up trash. Do the dishes.
Some say to have a pile of things that go into other rooms and just let it sit
until you're done in that room, but for those of you w/ ADD or just have the expectation
of constant interruption, take the stuff as you go along, you'll have a ready
made stopping place when you get interrupted.
Clear the clutter, clear your mind.
It didn't get that way in a day or a weekend; it won't go away that quickly.
Clutter is deferred decisions.
Pick up the trash in your house, then get it out the door. That, of course, is
the hard part.
A clean and organized space gives you feelings of freedom and helps you concentrate.

your files in categories may not work for you. If not try "muttering": say the
first thing that comes to mind when you look at the paper and write that on the
folder. 'I need to call these people' etc
To find out what clothes you wear, turn all the hangers in your closet backwards
and when you wear the item turn it front-wise. After a year, you'll know. Then
donate the ones you don't wear
You don't get organized and stay organized without spending some time every day
keeping up with it.
Everything needs to have a "home", you have to have an 'away' to put things
