If you are like most people, the first and biggest stumbling block to overcome is where to start when organizing a home. The options seem endless.
Storage areas of any kind usually make the most sense to begin the project. Choosing big or small spaces depends on you and what you want to accomplish first. This eventually allows for an easier course down the line.
Everything in your house requires a designated home. Things get haphazardly thrown around when they do not have a place to call their own. It takes too much time, energy and brainpower to manage on a daily basis without it.
Focus on one problematic area at a time. For instance, the dining room table is often a popular dumping ground for all ages and for all things. Toss what you can and begin to work on the rest. The remaining items will lead you to the next step. If coats lying around, for example, take you to the hall closet then clear it out entirely before trying to put anything more in it. This will make way for other belongings as you go through the process.
Once completed, return you focus to the table and begin again. Before too long, progress will be noticeable and the effects will snowball as more and more space becomes available. The key is getting rid of the clutter before compounding the issue with more clutter. After all, lack of space started the ball rolling and caused the trouble in the first place.
Tiny steps can make a big impact. By following the path, you may just find yourself on the road to recovery with a little more peace of mind as your reward.
