start organizing right now!

Are you looking for the perfect time to get organized? Here are some compelling reasons to motivate you to start now.

First and foremost: the sooner you start getting organized, the sooner you’ll be finished. In other words, the earlier you deal with your clutter, the faster you’ll feel relief from the feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed that have been piling up right along with the unwieldy stacks and unsightly clutter.

If you feel like you’re climbing an uphill battle to conquer Mount Clutter, it is certainly easy to think of reasons not to get started now. Perhaps you feel like you don’t have enough time, or you aren’t sure where to begin, or maybe you’re just feeling completely overwhelmed by the thought of it all. But at the end of the day, the sooner you start, the sooner you enjoy the benefits of organized living.

The good news is this: Getting started is very simple and you don’t need a lot of time to do so. And you don’t have to know each of the steps between point A and point B in order to start. All you have to do is begin! Grab a timer and a box, and pick a room. If you aren’t sure which room to choose, start with the room you’re in right now!

Once you have your supplies ready, set your timer for just fifteen minutes and look for the low-hanging fruit—items you know at a glance you no longer use, need or love. If you find yourself spending more than five seconds trying to make a decision on an item, put the item down and keep moving. Keep looking and plucking until the timer goes “ding.” Take note of how good it feels to be in motion, and then pat yourself on the back. You just got started, and you are now fifteen minutes closer to finishing!
