Hints & Suggestions
(in no particular order)

  • Don't 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.
  • Color coding 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
