Do You Really Have What it Takes in Getting Organized? Part 3 of 4
Posted By Co-Founder On January 8, 2010 @ 9:06 pm In Life Organization Tips | No Comments
Yesterday we gave you Part 2 of our 4 part series concerning organizing your life. You may have already guessed that today is going to be Part 3 so allow me to introduce Part 3 to you and without further adieu we are going to nose dive right into two more excuses of why people are not getting organized. This is basically the same opening as yesterday’s post – it just seems so much easier to copy from yesterday. Here goes:
Are you frugal by nature or have you been brought up in difficult economic times?
If so you may be very reluctant to give away or even throw away things that are still in working condition. When we talk about organizing your life you need to remember even things in working condition have to be dealt with. If you have no use for the item, working or not, it can’t be considered anything more than obsolete in your life. It is at this point you have an important decision to make, either give it away to someone who would actually use it or consider selling it in a yard sale.
Yes you got a great deal on this but here is a good question to ask – Do you use the item on a regular basis?
If not you can’t consider the item useful. There comes a point with any item that its usefulness wears out after time, this is part of life. You should always buy something only if you need it, if you manage to get a reasonable price, then you could consider it a bargain which makes the purchase even better. Keeping an item just because you got a great price is outweighed by its usefulness – No longer useful, let someone else have it, or just simply toss it. Remember, sales and discounts are a great way for the manufacturer to get rid of items which are soon going out of circulation or to get rid of overstocked items.
We originally mentioned we were going to be discussing 6 main excuses for not getting organized but here is the thing….There are actually 7 main excuses. The 7th is a surprise for Monday and one of the major reasons why people are not living organized. Come on back and see us Monday to find out what it could possibly be and what it has to do with household organization.
