If you’ve ever wanted to start some DIY organizing project, you may have been inspired to buy a bunch of bins on sale. Or perhaps in your DIY organizing fever, you purchased the newest organizing system to help. If you purchased a product prior to starting the process, you’ve been shammed!
DIY organizers world-wide are fooled every January when manufacturers take advantage of the after-holiday desire to clean up and put things away. And, like anything, you can spend a ton of money on just the right products for your DIY Organizing project. However, products will never solve organizing problems. If you’re a DIY organizer it all comes back to you.
If you really want to get organized, brainstorm a punch list first. Then you’ll need to take time out of your busy life to get started. Once you begin sorting and purging, stick with one area until it’s done. Then, you’ll be able to purchase an organizing product if it remedies a direct problem or situation.
When you go product shopping, I’m sure your heart is in solving a problem. But often when a product is purchased with no function, it often actually turns into clutter itself.
Additional, unused organizing products simply create more cutter. Not only that, but incomplete DIY organizing projects also add to the stress. When you have many incomplete projects at one time, you may be overrun with clutter. So, it’s best to wait until you are ready to take on the task of putting those products in action!
