You Can't Organize Clutter [Pt. 1]
Only after you’ve ruthlessly removed the “stuff” can you organize what’s left.
My top organization tips:
1️⃣ ✨ "Measure twice, cut once" - measure your space (and your items), THEN, figure out what you can use to store those items
✨ Use what you have or order your baskets/bags/bins of choice - Pinterest-perfect is nice, but useful is way better!
2️⃣ ✨ As Maria Montessori says, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” Give absolutely everything a home
✨ Instead of putting it down, put it AWAY!
3️⃣ ✨ Chose a “method” and stick with it throughout your home - be consistent, whether that’s alphabetical, rainbow or something else; I like to do a “trial run” when I first organize an area, as long as it’s functioning well, I’ll keep the method/solution and I may update my storage bins only AFTER it's working well
✨ Label everything that is not in a clear bin
I used to buy new storage solutions all the time but I just couldn’t get rid of the mess. What I didn’t realize was that I was never actually getting rid of the root cause by RUTHLESSLY getting rid of the clutter and crap. When I stopped filling up bins with that clutter and slapping a label on them and actually gave what was left a designated home, I FINALLY became the more organized person that I always wanted to be. Can you relate? What’s your top organization tip?
