Other Things to Consider Before You Begin any
Organizing Project

Other things to Consider before you begin any organizing project:

This is step 7 of 8.  You're nearly there!

So, by now, you have:

Other Things 1

Other Things
to Do

  • Determine who the most likely person to use the item is. Include them in the choices below.
  • Determine the level of detail you need to find something. Don't overdo the detail.
  • Keep like things together (shirts with shirts, tools with tools, pots/pans with pots/pans), etc.  You get the idea!
  • Determine how you want to find the item next time you look for it. Which room? What area? Alphabetical or numerical? Month or Year? Color code?
  • Use a labeler to help locate items quickly. Labeling machines are fairly inexpensive these days.
  • Search for How To information to help you keep the items organized and up to date. Searching this site is a great place to start!
  • Go through things regularly (especially food, medicines, coupons, mail, bills, files, etc.). If it’s expired, it’s dead!  Give it a decent burial!
  • Just like compound interest at the bank, small tasks done routinely help keep the clutter under control. Perform a clutter sweep right before bedtime.  Get everyone in the house to pitch in.
  • Choose regular times for daily chores.  Tuesday is trash day; Saturday is for laundry, etc. This will keep you on schedule and out of hot water (sorry for the laundry pun!).
  • Don’t procrastinate!  If you need help, please read the article on Why Do People Procrastinate? and ways to overcome it.
  • If you can't seem to Let go, consider there may be deeper issues, such as Hoarding Disorder.  See the article on Are You A Compulsive Hoarder? and what to do about it.
