The Art of Organization: 7 Time Saving Tips

Organization is more important in your life than you may imagine. Organization is so difficult for some people that they feel as if they’re just meant to be unorganized. The truth is, however, is that none of us are meant to be unorganized!

We’re a species that functions better when we have structure
in our lives. Without structure, we live in utter chaos.
 
All is not lost, though, if you have trouble organizing things! Organizing only one aspect of your life helps you to begin on the rest of it. This nice chain reaction helps things fall into place the way they should.
 
Time Saving Tips to Organize Your Life
 
The worst part about organizing your life is that it seems like it can take so much time. That’s one reason why so many people refuse to find an organization strategy. They feel like it will take too much time out of their day.
 
However, it doesn’t have to take much time at all! The strategy is to work it into your life in ways that don’t take so much time. Once your strategy is in place, it can actually save you time.
 
Here are some time saving tips to help you get organized:
 
1.    Pace yourself. You don’t have to do everything all at once. Take care of one thing at a time.
  • A lot of unorganized people have clothes lying across the floor and shoes in strange places. You could contain such a mess by picking those things up as you pass by them. Don’t wait to do it all at once; otherwise it may never get done.
2.    Set achievable goals. Make a plan to do only certain chores each day so that an entire day isn’t taken up by trying to do it all.
  • For example, set the goal of cleaning off your computer desk one day. That’s a task that may take only ten minutes. That’s a whole lot more manageable than resolving to clean your entire house in an afternoon!
3.    Storage. Invest in some functional storage containers. There are also some nice storage boxes that are decorative, too. Fill them as needed and when convenient.
  • Keep a storage box handy in your closet. As you find things you don’t use or wear anymore, put them into the box. Before you know it, your closet will be cleaned out!
4.    Make a game out of it. Get the whole family in on it. This will save a lot of time if everyone pitches in.
  • Tell the kids if they help that you can have a special pizza night. Present them with a reward and they’ll work hard, saving you time and getting your home organized quickly.
5.    Change habits. Changing some of your habits can make things easier on you.
  • Instead of waiting for days to wash those dirty dishes, pick a time at the end of the day to wash them or do it in the mornings. That will save you time because it only takes a few minutes to wash a few dishes, instead of a heaping pile.
6.    Make the entire family responsible. Give everyone in the house responsibilities so that things can become organized and stay that way.
  • Put up a chart on the refrigerator or on a wall that outlines the weekly responsibilities and who’s supposed to do each chore. It’s not your responsibility to clean your child’s room, make sure they take ownership of their own tasks.
7.    Use racks and shelves. Make a place for everything so that everything has its own place.

  • Use a spice rack for your spices.
  • Invest in shoe organizers for the closets.
  • Hang stuffed animal hammocks in the kids’ bedrooms.
The Importance of Organization
 
The importance of organization cannot be underestimated because it carries over into other aspects of your life. Without it, it’s hard to see clearly what’s going on around you.
 
When your life is organized, you can better point out the solution. You can also feel better about yourself and your environment. Plus, you’ll be able to find more time to do things you actually enjoy.

Doing this in itself is a kaizen moment for me. To write about my feelings, growth, experiences, perceptions and inhibitions is not something that I usually do. To be very honest I have had a dreading idea, that you might come up with a task that is all but part of my comfort zone. Knowing this and having the experience of the firewalk and what that Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-11-06 Where does today’s money come from?   I’m not talking about historical money right now, though that is an interesting tale! For now I am just looking at where today’s money comes from. The money in your pocket. The money owing on your bond.   Okay, you worked for it. Or you borrowed it.   But where did it come from?   Yes, your employer. The bank.   But before that?   It was created out of nothing.   Once... Read more...
