Springtime is a time of rebirth and a time when most folks give their home or office a good cleaning. For everything there is a season, and this is the season to get rid of the winter cobwebs. The most important key to an efficient clean sweep program is organization. When there is a place for everything and everything is in its place, then maintenance is a breeze. For an efficient clean-sweep process clear out the clutter, purge the unnecessary, broken and unloved, then begin organizing your treasures.
The hardest part of getting organized is deciding where to begin. The second hardest part is getting started. There is always more to do than time allows and thinking about it can be overwhelming. But, who says it all has to be done all at once? Choose a course of action that works best for you. And let me help you along the way!
Plan to get started
Organizing is about changing behaviors and making wise choices. Before you start a clean sweep program, take time to plan your attack. Spending a little time planning saves a lot of time in the long run. Here are a few suggestions:
- Map out your clean sweep program and schedule the time on your calendar to do a little each day. Remember to keep those appointments; they are as important as those appointments that take you somewhere else.
- Write it down, make it happen, as Henriette Anne Klauser wrote in her book.
- Focus on the section that creates the biggest frustration. This is the area where the payout is the greatest.
- Do one area a month, and twelve different cluttered spots will be taken care of each year.
- Prioritize — consider cleaning and organizing all the closets before you tackle drawers and shelves, or work on one room completely before heading into another room.
- How you progress is your choice; just set the plan and follow through.
