The thought itself is nerve-cracking and annoying, isn’t it? The process of arranging and keeping things in order are considered chunks of our everyday routine of life and can be performed in all ways.
Oblivion on messy and cluttered home can be inevitable and would possibly become a ‘normal thing’ for you at home, worst is, you may not realize it. But hey, stop for a while and take a deep breath. How about consider to learn and implement brand new, DIY home organizing techniques that are smooth and easy.
You got a problem on where and how to begin, then,we’ve collate a brief and concise guide as HELPS for every facet of your home all the way.
So, here are the five HELPS that could make your home organization dilemmas put into rest:
HELP #1 Have T-I-M-E
We usually believe that organizing seemed to be a time-seeking and demanding task. “I don’t have the time to get organized my house, I have way too much to do to set aside time to organize my life.” Sounds familiar? We tend to think that we can’t spare time to organize even a specific area in our house since “I’m busy…”, “I have a hectic schedule…”, and “My schedule is full this week…” These are common lines we used to say when it comes to giving extra time in fixing and organizing the filthy, messy and cluttered home.
Actually, organizing tend to be time-seeking and demanding task, yes, but eventually, when you give little-by-little time in a day or in a week, perhaps, on a regular basis, taking out the time to organize can help you save a lot of precious time and would become your way of life (as means to be a routine).
Take your time; don’t go too wild or try to jump ahead. Never feel pressured to do it all at once. Here’s how:
A. You may begin by identifying the areas at home that is untidy, messy and has caused mood swings as soon as you see it. It can be frustrating when you can’t achieve your allotted time of a certain task, but hey, just take it easy. No rush. Your home did not get messy and chaos in one whole day, and it will not be cleaned up in one whole day either. You used to live in a place where a topsy turvy, filthy, messy and cluttered home is almost a normal thing; then one whole day will be insufficient for you, believe me.
Take your time. Once you establish a habit, then it will be easier for you to add it to your daily routines.
B. Next, have a specific project that only takes short or small portion of the day like, arranging your shoe rack and maybe you would like to transfer the place where you originally placed it.
You don’t need to accomplish grand task in a short period of time. Try accomplishing just one minor goal can give you the motivation to keep going and eventually organize everything.
C. Your main concern is your hectic schedule and usually running out of time to get and stay organized.
Well, you may seek for help. Gather your family, your kids, your relatives or friends perhaps. You may have a duo system in doing the task to help you get started and finished the tasks.
For instance, in one weekend you may ask your kids to help out with the arrangement and sorting of their closet.
HELP #2 Save M-O-N-E-Y
How many of you have duplicate items in the kitchen, such as silverwares, containers and a lot more because it was not visible when the time you need it the most in a special occasion perhaps?
You even bought the same tools like screwdriver, even the knife because the once you usually used nowhere to be found in the most urgent time of need. Yes, we tend to forget things that already exist and later when you happen to see the same item in store, you buy one, since you don’t remember that you already have one.
Duplication of things leads to higher expenses and wastage of money. Home organization can also refer to fewer purchases of duplicate items by people in the household in a short note.
The most common sentiment we can hear, “It’s too hassle to get organized since the equipment/tools and even filing cabinets or filing rack needed is a bit expensive.” “…it would cost me way too much to organize everything again because…”

HELP #3 To-do list Day Per Day

Set and clarify the must-to-be done things in all areas at home: your garage or parking space, dining, kitchen, living room, bedroom, and your closet. You can keep track to your accomplished tasks through your systematic list.
Second, once you listed clear goals, you now then start listing your top priorities. You may begin from top to bottom; if you’re living in a two-story house, you may start from the bedroom.
In your bedroom, start with your closet which you may consider organizing by color, size or even according to its value and usage. In setting priorities, it is imperative to be keen and track down your accomplished tasks based on your list because incomplete and unfinished tasks can be very frustrating. It is more satisfying and fulfilling to see and trace your projects was achieved.
