Blog: Busy Moms Can Be Organized Too
THIS ORGANIZER IS GETTING ORGANIZED



A lot of my current clients are away on vacation this week so I have had some time to focus on me. What a phenomenon!

I decided to take this opportunity to "get organized". I know, it's hard to believe that my life is different from everyone else's. As an organizer, it is pre-conceived that my life runs like a well-oiled machine at all times. Why not, I'm organized, right? Well, the fact of the matter is that I also need to work to maintain organization in my home and in my life, just as I teach others to do.

I decided to focus on one floor of my home at a time. Yesterday, I started with the second floor. I not only decluttered, I thoroughly cleaned as well. I eliminated a lot of excess bedding (sheets and pillow cases) from my linen closet and am donating them to a local SPCA. I got rid of a lot of sample products that I had accumulated, including my dentist, who loves to give me dental floss every time I visit! I went through my closet and eliminated clothing I hadn't worn in a while and no longer wanted. I eliminated paperwork that had accumulated in accordion files in my master bedroom and relocated it to where it should be stored - in my home office.

I dusted and vacuumed and gathered a lot of items from this floor and am making a large donation to a local non-profit thrift store today. I even ordered parts for my washing machine so I can make the minor repairs myself. I feel good about what I have accomplished so far and am looking forward to working on the first floor of my home today and tomorrow.

There is not a lot to do on these floors but I want to block out a specific amount of time each day to work on a portion of it. The sense of accomplishment I am already feeling is motivating me to do more.

My largest project is the basement. It encompasses a family room, home office and storage room. It will take quite some time to go through what has accumulated, especially in the storage room. It's not unorganized, just cluttered. I plan to take the entire month of August, in between working, to focus on this area. I am going to break this down into manageable pieces so I can focus on one section at a time.

By the end of September, I will have decluttered my entire home. Now that's a plan!

So, just so you understand, even professional organizers need to declutter and get organized at times. I make sure the day-to-day stuff is still always maintained. Sometimes, however, the other stuff needs to be gone through and decluttered as well.

I am never too busy to help those in need, so if you need me to help you get motivated to declutter and get organized, contact me. I am here for you.

Enjoy your week! I'm enjoying mine!
