“Where do I start? My life is so disorganized!”
Start with just five minutes a day.
“But I can’t accomplish anything in just five minutes!”
Five minutes a day is more than nothing, it’s a containable time period, and by the end of one week – you’ll have dedicated more than 35 minutes to your de-cluttering goal. Here are some road rules to follow, five minutes at a time.
Today’s 5 Minute Fix: Schedule a de-cluttering weekend
Maybe you don’t feel like doing a huge decluttering session right now. But if you take the time to schedule it for later this month, you can clear your schedule, and if you have a family, get them involved too. The more hands pitching in, the better – as long as you’ve taken time to create a plan. Be sure to prepare for the big weekend. Get boxes and trash bags ready, and plan a trip to a charity to drop off donated items. You might not get the entire house decluttered during the weekend, but you’ll probably make great progress.
A weekend is on it’s way… See what you can collect to donate to area tag sales, or donation drop centers!
