Mondays Are Great For Organization!

I always see “I hate Mondays” or ” Mondays don’t agree with me” I LOVE Mondays!!! psychologically its like starting over! It’s a new week . It’s a new beginning! If you are going to hate a day, maybe it should be Sunday? It’s the last day of the weekend and may times it seems to go by fast. It’s also a heavy travel day on freeways and flying and trains. Maybe you should hate Fridays? Everyone seems to be on edge from the week. it’s also a heavy travel day as folks go out-of-town. Hotel prices are at their highest! Car accidents happen cuz people are trying to flee their jobs and get a drink. LOL Or they started drinking! (Always take UBER or LYFT home) 

Obviously I don’t advocate “hating” a day. A day is just a day! I’ve had many jobs that don’t follow the Monday through Friday, weekends off  set up. Actually I’m in that ind of situation now. Placing blame on a day is pointless. Bad days can happen everyday and any day. Plus I believe if you really believe in something , than it will happen. That can be related to something positive AND something negative like I hate Mondays, it’s going to suck. Then it will.

I choose to look at Mondays as a great day! The mood feels new and fresh. Anything can happen! And as i relate it to organizing, you can adopt many rituals to keeping clutter to a minimum. You can choose that day to be the pick up toys around the house day. Monday could be the day you handle all your mail for the week. It could be the day you clean out the fridge and go grocery shopping for the week. I think you get the idea.

Lets work on turning Monday into just another day!!!

Super Tip Thursday- Clutter is a Result of Delayed Decisions

Image result for positive organizing quote in spanish

I love this quote! I believe it to be true!

Decisions delayed. Not wanting to make a decision. Afraid to make a decision. There are probably decisions to be made for much of whats going on in your clutter.

Its time to stop the delay! if you need help like a Professional Organizer or a Certified Life Coach or a Pastor or therapist…its time to take that step. I want you all to live life in the present and not a life of delayed actions and your past failures staring you in the face. You deserve to always be moving forward!

The Super Organizer #GoMonth Challenge: Part 6

It is the last day of #GOMonth and it has been fun coming up with these challenges. This is the final one for the month. I hope you found them useful. They may have been small, but small changes to lead to larger ones! AS I say, small steps lead to large rewards! 

Here is challenge number 6:

Its kind of a two-parter! Start with your shoes. I don’t care what kind, pick two pairs that you haven’t worn in a long time and wear one today and the other tomorrow.

It used to be women were shoe-aholics, but now men are just a bad. Hehe. I love shoes!!! We have a tendency to pick the same couple of pairs and wear them all time. Rotating your shoes, saves money. The shoes don’t wear out as fast. You KNOW what you have. YOU DID buy them for a reason, to wear them! 

With this challenge, it does include what you wear. So whatever two shoes you pick, hopefully that will get you to wear two outfits that matches the shoes that you haven’t worn in a while too! NOW your wardrobe is being  rotated.

If you pick shoes and they don’t fit, get rid of them. If they are ripped, torn, dirty beyond repair, get rid of them! If the shoe doesn’t fit , don’t wear it! Shoes can take up a LOTT of space!! Especially if you are someone like me who wears a size 14~

It’s time! Do it! Throw out all old food,pieces of food, get it out! Do you see anything that is still good but you haven’t used yet? Maybe put that to the front of the fridge. The fridge is one of the most used appliances. Lets keep it nice and lets know what we have in there!

It can save you money too!

The Super Organizer #GoMonth Challenge: Part 4

It is #GOMonth and I’ve been giving you challenged every few days or so. Hopefully they are bringing something to you as far as organization and awareness! 

Here is the 4th challenge:

Do A Wastebasket/Trashcan count in your place! Make sure every room has one! 

They are expensive. You can get cute ones for cheap! All bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dens, living rooms, dining rooms, home offices and garages should have a can in them! For many of those rooms, small ones will do.

Many times when there isn’t a trashcan in the room, things sit and don’t get taken to the trash can in the other part of the house. Also its makes things easier to throw out with a can nearby  Junk mail, really broken items, old underwear, containers, etc.

You got this! It’s in the can!!!

The Super Organizer #GoMonth Challenge: Part 3

It’s #GO Month! Time to GET ORGANIZED! 

Heres the 3rd challenge:

Take TWO Books that you have read (and know you won’t read again) and pass them on!

If they are in reasonably good condition, pass them on to a friend(s) who you think might like it (them), or donate them! There are churches and other outreach programs looking for books!

This is to bring awareness to book hoarding! I am kind of a book hoarder and I am practicing this method! Books can become heavy and take up a lot of space and they are just sitting there collecting dust!

Books should be read and enjoyed !

The Super Organizer #GoMonth Challenge: Part 2

It is #GOMonth ! Time to GET ORGANIZED!! 

Here is the second challenge:

I want you to go thru wherever you keep you underwear  (bra and panties for women) and socks. I want you to pick one pair of each to throw away!

We are talking ripped, holey, stained, too small, too big, stretched out, missing one piece. GET rid of it!

Sidenote- if you find socks or underwear that are still in their packaging, wear them first. Wear them next!

We really neglect socks and underwear and they can take up a lot of space. Lets clear that space up a bit!
