Some people work best with a deadline or a justification to complete a task.
If you’re one of those people, you might be interested in knowing that Friday, March 11, is Organize Your Home Office Day. You can acknowledge this “holiday” by clearing off the workspace you use at home to pay bills and file paperwork. If you haven’t already paid your taxes, spend some time gathering all the pertinent papers so you don’t have to hunt for them at the last minute.
You also might like to know that next week, the third week in March, is Clean Out Your Closet Week. Take the opportunity to evaluate whether the things in your bedroom, linen or hall closet merit the space they occupy.
When you find things that don’t make the cut, put them in a bag or box to donate and take them out by the end of the week. You might be more motivated by calling a non-profit and arranging a pickup. Knowing that someone is counting on you for a donation could spur you to finally let go of some of the things that have been piling up.
Let go of the stuff that’s holding you back and free up some space for the things you really value.
Do you have a strategy you rely on to help you start or get through an organizing project?
