Why Are You Doing This?

This month I will share with you 3 lessons I learned from having knee surgery a few weeks ago:

First lesson:  Why are you trying to get organized?  What is your overall goal?  Have a purpose for why you are working so hard to get organized.  Do you want to save money, reduce     clutter, increase productivity?  For me it became clear when my mom was here for a week taking care of me: to be able to find things easily and when I need them.  It was great when my mom asked where something was and I could just shout from the couch the exact location. Or when she was kind enough to put things away for me, she could tell exactly where everything went without a lot of searching.  For me I stay organized so that I can share my home with others and easily find what I need when I need it.  Bonus:  having a   clutter free house makes it a lot easier to hobble around on a cane– safety first! ☺

Goals should be SMART:
