It was December 27th. We took down the tree, cleaned up the needles and began to put away our gifts. With all three of us at home we took advantage of the time to move some furniture around and complete some “honey-do” items. One thing led to another and before I knew it our upstairs hallway looked like the bedrooms had puked up every extra piece of furniture. To pick up, sort, throw away, and put away was like eating spaghetti.
Opening the closet to put something away opened another opportunity to organize and create space. The best approach I’ve found is to “one touch” stuff. Pick something up, find it a home and put it there – don’t go down rabbit trails of new projects, just make note of them and move on. Just keep working it and eventually you’ll find the floor (or the top of your desk – this method works well at the office).
Give it a try and let me know.
All the best,
