Waiting for What?

We tend to put off getting organized just to have the clutter bother us later.  Here are some quotes that may help motivate you: 

¨ Don’t wait.  The time will never be just right.

¨ Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.

¨ Don’t think, just do.

¨ Yesterday is rarely too early, but tomorrow is frequently too late.

¨ The beginning is the most important part of the work.

¨ If not now, when?

¨ We are always getting ready to live, but never living.

¨ You will never find time for anything; if you want time, you must make it. 

I know you can do it, just start one small step at a time.  And if you need help– ask me.  That is what I am here for.  — Stacey

One Small Spot for Yourself

Do you live with someone that has a different organizing style than you?  Perhaps it is your spouse, your roommate or even your child.  Do you constantly struggle with getting them to be more organized because it causes chaos and stress for you?  Consider a compromise.  Decide together on one spot in the home where they can be messy and you won’t care.  This way the clutter is contained to one area, but they get to be themselves and not worry about it.  Everyone needs to be free to be who they are, so work together to find a way for your two styles to co-exist.
