5-minute organizing

You might not think you can accomplish much in five minutes, but you really can make a difference in a short time. In five minutes you can complete one of these activities:

  • Sort the mail
  • Toss old newspapers
  • Empty receipts from your wallet
  • Start a load of laundry
  • File a few papers
  • Load the dishwasher
  • Empty the trash
  • Hang up clothes

Some of these activities involve cleaning, which you might need to finish before you can start organizing a space. Sometimes simply tidying makes a space feel more organized and function better.

Rather than wait for a substantial block of time, take advantage of the minutes you’re waiting for the coffee to brew or the next meeting to start. If you usually check your email or social media when you have a few spare minutes, consider doing something more productive.

You will not finish an entire room or even an entire drawer in five minutes, but you will further your goals of having a more organized environment.
