12 Month Challenge: How to Stay Motivated to Keep Your Spaces Organized

Share This Post

When we look at the things that usually work for us, we can see that the success can usually be attributed to having some systems in place.

Why not take some time to review and revise your home organizational system to make it
work even better?

Follow these steps to see if you can make small changes that will yield big results:

Assess your current system: Take a look at the way you currently organize your home. Ask yourself questions like, “What’s working well? What needs improvement? What’s missing?” Consider each room and each type of item you need to organize.

Identify your goals: Determine what you want to achieve with your organizational system. For example, you might want to increase storage space, reduce clutter, or make it easier to find things.

Analyze your belongings: Take a closer look at the things you own and ask yourself if they are still useful or bring you joy. Think about decluttering items that you no longer need or use.

Give some thought to new storage solutions: Research and explore new storage solutions that can help you achieve your goals. For example, you might consider using baskets, bins, shelves, or hanging organizers.

Create a plan: Based on your assessment and analysis, create a plan to revise and improve your home organizational system. Set specific goals and milestones, and establish a timeline for implementation.

Implement changes: Put your plan into action and start making the necessary changes to your home organizational system. Start small and tackle one room or category at a time. Be prepared to let go of items you no longer need or use and remember to maintain your new system over time by regularly decluttering and reorganizing.
Here are some small changes you can make to stay focused and keep your spaces organized and clutter-free:

Adopt the “one-in, one-out” rule: Whenever you bring something new into your home, get rid of something old. This will help you prevent clutter from building up over time.

Create designated spaces for everything: Give every item in your home a specific home. This will help you find things quickly and easily, and also help you put things away in their proper place.

Implement a daily tidy-up routine: Set aside a few minutes every day to tidy up your space. This can be as simple as putting away items that have been left out or wiping down surfaces.

Minimize distractions: Keep your workspace or living area free from distractions, such as excess noise or clutter. This will help you stay focused and productive.

Be mindful of what you bring into your space: Before making a purchase, consider if the item is truly necessary or if it will just add to clutter. Try to be intentional with what you bring into your home.

Happy organizing!
