I love to organize. I organize things when I'm stressed. It's a gift. And a curse. I've helped people reorganize their homes and I really enjoy it. This time of year, I know many of you are looking at organizing your house. It's a great time to do it! It's cold and dark so you are probably stuck inside.
The BEST way to organize is to get rid of stuff. You DO NOT want to spend time organizing things that you don't need. So HOW do you get rid of stuff without spending hours doing it? Get a box or laundry basket. Find a place in your house to put it. This is your 'Goodwill' basket (or whatever charity you like to donate to). Every time you run across something that needs to exit the house, put it in the basket. To step it up a notch, spend a few minutes every day getting rid of 7 things. Put them in the basket. When the basket is full, put it in your car for the next time you pass by the charity of choice. Without much work, you are lightening your load!
