The New Year is coming up quickly, and before you know it we will all be in 2015. Have you begun to think about your New Year’s resolutions? What are some things that you practiced this year that you can do better next year? Is there something that you want to start doing? Do you want to switch up a bad habit? Get fit? Stop eating bad? What about watching so much television or spending so much money?
Obviously there are plenty of things that we can all work on in 2015. However, one of the things that we can all work on is to get better at staying organized. Here are some simple ways that you can stay organized in 2015 (hopefully better than you did in 2014).
Stay on Top of it
One of the easiest ways to slip back into being unorganized is to give up to soon. Let’s face it – it isn’t easy to keep things organized and clean. Sure, maybe if you live alone and don’t really have too many people over it isn’t that difficult to stay on top of things. However, once you get a house, get married, have kids, and start bringing people over things become a lot more difficult.
So, what are some ways that you can stay on top of being organized this coming up year? Simply make it a part of your life. Instead of making it an option, make it a necessity.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race
We all know the story of the tortoise and the hare, and in many situations this story proves to be true. Keeping clean and organized happens to be one of these situations. In other words, it’s a lot better to clean a little bit every single day or week than it is cleaning a whole lot once a month or year. Why does it take so long to spring clean? That’s right – because people don’t pay any attention to things in their garage for months on end.
Imagine if people actually took the time to clean up piece by piece one day at a time. The outcome would be that everything would be cleaner!
So, don’t save everything for the last minute – start cleaning today. Start with one drawer, and then move onto the next one tomorrow. Don’t jump too far over your head and start little by little!
Invest in Tools
Of course, you aren’t meant do keep organized all alone! There are some great tools that you can invest in that will help you keep everything clean and organized in a much easier way. What are some of these tools? There is the Central Vacuum Tacoma, for example. How can this tool help? Well, along with providing cleaner air for your home, it cleans a lot faster and better than any vacuum cleaner on the market today.
Some other tools include shelves, hangers, cabinets, and various “holders”. Essentially, anything that works for you in terms of holding material items can be considered a tool.
