Buying organizingproducts is NOT the firststep to getting organized.
First, sort allyour stuff tomakekeep/tossdecisions.
Then, buy only theorganizing productsthat you actually need.
We plan based on howlong we’re willing towork, not how long theproject requires.
Be realistic about thetime the project willtake to complete.
The longer you’ve beenneglecting the mess,the more time youllneed to fix it.
As you handle each item,it’s easy to get boggeddown trying to decidewhat to keep.
First, sort all thecontents of yourspace into categorieswithout decidingwhat to keep.
Now you can make goodkeep/toss decisionsabout each category.
“It was a gift!”
“I’m going     “Really. to fix it.”    I mean that.”
“It cost me a lot of money!”
Refusing to makea decision is onlypostponing your pain.
Don’t let one difficultdecision halt yourprogress.
Success in making easydecisions will empower youto make the harder ones.
Time for your questions!
