What Do Overwhelmed and Getting Organized Have in Common?
Have you ever wondered how the heck a situation got so out of control?
When you first start to organize things, you might feel overwhelmed at the sight of all the things that you have collected and may wonder how it ever got to this stage. Try not to feel guilty or worry too much about it. You are now taking positive steps to clear all the clutter and getting organized. From this point forward, spend your time and energy in focusing on the future and not repenting about the past.
As you move forward, start your campaign by creating a master plan that contains a list of all that you want organized or done in the house. Before starting into specifics take a quick tour through the house and start noting down the jobs to be done in your notebook. These could range from cleaning bathroom drawers, sorting out toys, clearing newspapers, thinning your clothes closet and so on. This will remain your master list of short-term and long-term goals.
Keep a bag of supplies handy as you go around sorting and organizing. This bag should typically contain the following:
- different sized Ziploc bags
- a tote bag
- garbage bags
- empty boxes
- and a large bin with handles.
Being overwhelmed and getting organized go hand in hand – these feelings are perfectly normal to have and as each day passes those feelings will come under control especially as you start to see progress and accomplish specific goals you have set out for yourself.
