where do you start?

So you are ready to get started on that organizing project that has been hanging around for several weeks (or even months). But where do you start?

This question—where should I start—is one of the most common I hear when talking to people who want their homes and lives to be more organized. I have written about it before, but now more than ever I realize that people want what an organized home and life bring—less stress, less late fees, more peace of mind, and a greater sense of control, not to mention how great an organized home looks. So here’s my official answer: there is no single right place to begin—the important thing is just to do something. Start somewhere. Start anywhere. Just start.

Set a timer for 15 minutes and make it a game. See how much you can get done in that time and do the same thing tomorrow...and the next day...and the next! Over the course of one month, you will have accumulated 7.5 hours of organizing. Over an entire year, you will accumulate 91.25 hours (almost 4 days). Just imagine how organized your home could be with only 15 minutes a day for one year!
