2) Consider the current state of your home.
Organizing your home can be easy. Whether it’s the bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom you have a number of options to tidy up any area of your home. Getting furniture that allows for function as well as storage can greatly assist you in keeping that room clutter free. In the kitchen keeping kitchenware close to where it is most likely to be used can save you time and energy having to sift through a draw of various kitchen items. For example installing a peg board above the stove can help you keep your pots and pans available for easy access and free up some other space for better storage options. For your bathroom using adhesive cups to separate hygiene items and keep them off the counter in additional to keeping major items like medicine in designated areas in case of emergency. Don’t forget to keep the towels near by the shower for easy access as well as the toilet paper not too far from the toilet to avoid embarrassing incidents.
3) Look at where majority of your day is spent at.
When it comes to organizing your workstation keeping it clean is secondary to functionality. Making sure your work top is organized will enhance productivity and efficiency as well as keeping it clean looking. Office spaces have a bad habit of becoming collecting unneeded items. Things like miscellaneous paper, paper clips, binder clips, etc. all can accumulate over time on our desks. Additionally having more than one major item is unnecessary. Whether you take a purse, briefcase, or backpack to work keeping it organized may not seem like a major priority but by consolidating items and cleaning out items that don’t get used often enough to justify being in there you can take some of the weight out of your carrying cases.
