destination organization

Remember the last time you went on a trip or a vacation? You decided where you were going before packing your bags or making any other travel plans.

When getting organized, it works best if you follow the same process. Though the urge to just dive-in and get started organizing will be strong, resist this urge and do a bit of groundwork first. Decide where you are going and how you want things to be when you get there. What will your space look like? What will you do when you arrive at destination organization? Then, make the appropriate plans to get there.

You wouldn’t dream of leaving on vacation without knowing the destination, in part because you wouldn’t know what you need when you get there. Do we need sweaters or swim suits? It’s just the same with organizing. Until you decide where you’re going, it’s much harder to decide what to keep and what to let go of. But, with just a bit of pre-planning, this and every other decision in the organizing process is much, much easier.

Happy organizing!
