Get Organized…Enough

  1. Inventory – not just for retail stores! Know what you have from clothes to paper towels.
  2. Neutral is good. Spend 10/15 minutes each night getting your house back to “neutral”.
  3. Quality over quantity. Pay a little more for a higher quality item.
  4. Schedule daily tasks. Monday: vacuum, Tuesday: sweep, Wednesday: skip day…
  5. Don’t tackle too much at one time. Organize one space and move on, don’t try and conquer the entire house in one weekend.
  6. Don’t break the bank with new organization tools/bins. Use what you have already!
  7. Get the family involved! Each family member is in charge of an area, show them how it should be organized and how to clean it. Then they can’t say “But, I don’t know how!”
