The 3 Biggest Home Organizing Mistakes that Cost You Time and Money


Have you experienced this?

When it's time to get your home, closet, or kitchen organized, I've seen so many women run out to the store, walk up and down the aisles, and purchase the newest, trendiest organizers, boxes and containers. It seems like a great idea at the time, and I'm sure you've done it just like I have. Interestingly, I've learned and now know that this is the first mistake that us organizing-minded women make, because it will only add to the clutter in your home.  My first piece of advice when faced with an organizational headache or spending urge: Slow down, resist the urge and go back home!

Playing "Leap Frog"

When you are back at home, it is time to get started.  Pick one corner of the room and stay there.  Don’t go run around the house putting things back.  You will get distracted.  Focus on the corner and systematically work around the room.

Tackling More Than You Can Chew

If you only have an hour, don’t attempt to organize the entire basement.  Start on one box or drawer.  Work for forty minutes and then use the last twenty minutes to put items away.  Make sure you put the trash out and the donation items in your car.


"It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires a great deal of strength to decide what to do." 

Elbert Hubbard

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one."
