  • Get That House Organized!


    Winter can be a time in the year where we Clevelanders stay inside most days and nights, too weak to embrace the cold winter air and those slushy puddles of snow. We also seem to take in a lot of "stuff"; boxes of food, broken lamps, piles of books and magazines etc. We seem to store all of this junk in the garage...and with the sun setting later in the day, it's safe to say that winter is coming to a close, and Spring is right around the corner. I know one of the major tasks on my to-do list is to throw out or donate a lot of my clothes and other house hold items I rarely use. If you feel like me, and want to declutter your house and your life, take a look at some of these tips and ideas:

    1. Everything you own should have value, either because it's functional or beautiful or you just love it. Remember the question of what you'd grab if your house were on fire; that's your baseline for determining an object's worth.

    2. Every item needs a place where it "lives." Setting things down on the coffee table or kitchen counter creates piles and confusion. My clients mock me when I say, "Where do your keys live? They live in a bowl or on a hook by the front door"—but you never lose anything when you put it where it lives.

    3. Focus on one thing at a time. Multitasking is supposed to help you get more things done quickly, but when you try to do 19 things at once, everything ends up incomplete. You're trying to simplify your life, so simplify your approach to getting organized. Now let's get started.
