Organized people make their beds every day.

Organized People

If you are reading this, you are probably trying to get more organized. Some of the best tips about getting your home in order are from people who are themselves organized. Here are some things that these people do consistently.

Load the dishwasher 

Organized people don’t leave dishes in the sink overnight. They clean up right after they eat and load the dishwasher. The longer dishes pile up, the bigger the chore becomes. If you clean up right after you eat, you only have that meal’s dishes and pans to clean. It will probably only take you a few minutes.

Get ready for tomorrow

People who are organized will consider what they are doing the next day. They figure out what they are going to wear ahead of time. In the morning when things always seem a bit more hectic, having your clothing picked out is a time saver.

Get the coffee pot set up so that you just have to press the “on” button when you wake up tomorrow. Put gas in your car on your way home instead of waiting until the morning. This ensures you are not rushing to get to an appointment the next time you are in the car. Charge devices ahead of time so you are not worrying the next day that you only have a 3% battery strength and no time to charge it.

Make lists

It’s always a good idea to make a list of what needs to be done. You can list them in order of importance, when you need to do them or whatever method seems logical to you. Break big tasks down into smaller pieces so they are not so intimidating. In addition, It’s fun to cross them off as you do them!

Make your bed

Organized people make their bed every day. When you get into the habit of  making your bed each morning it becomes almost a reflex. It’s a small thing, but can help you on the road to becoming more organized.

A place for everything and everything in its place

Everything you needs to its own place. This is where you keep the thing when you are not using it. If you don’t have room for all of your belongings, it’s time to purge.

Purge without emotion

Make logical decisions about what needs to go. If you don’t use it, you really don’t need it. Don’t get emotionally attached to objects. They are just things. Purge what you don’t need, don’t have space for and don’t use.

Understand you don’t have to be perfect

Even organized people are not completely organized every minute of the day. Look at your living space with a critical eye. Think about how your home looks to others. Then organize within your own comfort zone. If you feel like you need help, you can always contact me. I’m always here for you.
