Organizing Your Home – Can A List Help?
Posted By Co-Founder On January 13, 2010 @ 6:49 pm In Life Organization Tips | No Comments
Yesterday we discussed the importance of getting started by choosing a room to organize first. At this point we will have to assume you know which room you will be starting to organize. Now that you are underway and getting a start on organizing your home, you need to make a list of what you would like to see happen in that particular room.
At this point it is not important about categorizing or ordering in priority what you write down on your list – the important thing is getting ideas on paper therefore just write down what enters your mind. Even if thoughts about building more storage space, creating a home-office or even buying more storage solutions come into your mind, write them down before you lose the thought. Later on we will be dividing the tasks based on priority and giving them deadlines, but for now we don’t want you getting distracted so continue making your list.
How is your list going? Are you done?
There is no point in overwhelming you with too much information therefore to throw in another idea would do just that, so for today we are going to leave you with the task of creating your list and making sure you get every thought possible on paper. You may be thinking “But there is only so much I can do as I don’t own the property – we rent” or “I have no idea what to do with this room and never really thought about it.” It is true there will always be excuses as to why you can’t write out a list but whether you rent or own there are things you can do based on your situation. If you rent and want to add shelves to the room or change the room in any way you need to make sure you have your landlords permission. Keep thinking as this is a very important step when organizing your home.
We are looking forward to you sharing your ideas so why not make a comment and let us know how you are doing with creating your list. Need some help, ask a question in the comment section and we will answer.(Providing it is related to the topic. ) See you tomorrow.
