Got Clutter? Who doesn’t? In my earlier post, I’m a Tweener, I was talking about being organized or a clutter-catcher. For new moms or those who have been at it for a few years, keeping a home running in tip-top ship-shape is nearly an impossible feat. As your family expands your world (life within your four walls) can get more cluttered than you ever imagined.
Organizing goes beyond your physical realm. Think inside the box. What? You read right, think about that box called your computer. Your once large hard disk storage can be eaten up quickly with large digital photo files, music mp3 files, or gaming applications. Start de-cluttering your hard drive – weed out and back-off all files not necessary for daily applications to reduce the drag on your system. Get a handle on it now before you have a monstrous task on your hands.
1) What one piece of organizing advice would you give to a new mother?
2) How often do you de-clutter?
Advice for new mothers…One mistake I’ve made in the past is holding on to magazines. If there is an important article or recipe in your favorite magazine, then see if you can find it online. Save the file as a pdf for future reference and ditch the paper version. Your magazine archives can grow out of hand, leave you frustrated because you can’t find what you’re looking for, and will only collect dust.
De-cluttering is a daily ritual. When I come across something that needs to be trashed, then I just do it. If I walk into a room and find something that isn’t where its supposed to be then I put it where it belongs. This isn’t as easy as it sounds, especially if something has been laying out of place for away. Your brain begins to think that’s where it belongs and you won’t make the connection. I’ve learned not procrastinating on small jobs makes my life easier.
