“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.”
January is a time of reflection and renewal. Much like spring, (but with snow and cold), many of us reflect over the last year with a bit of regret, but also so much happiness with our growth!
Every spring & fall I jump into purge and organize mode. It’s out with the old and in with the new. Through the month of January I will be discussing some basic how-to get organized, but not just get there. I’m going to help guide you how to STAY there in preparation for the upcoming spring.
You can definitely get ahead of the game if you’d like, after all if you deal with the winter blahs like I do, organizing always puts me in a much grander frame of mind!
It’s time to regroup, pitch and toss the junk and tidy up what stays. Organization falls into one of my ‘love’ categories… everything has its place and everything in its place.
Collect moments, not things.
This will be my third go around with this organizational series, but each time I have new ideas and ways to help guide you to an organized and more peaceful life. Yes, organization does bring peace over the chaos of clutter.
Many of the topics I discuss in this series I learned from an incredible lady named Marla Cilley, A.K.A. The Flylady. Her book, “Sink Relections” taught me how to incorporate all this lessons. It was from the inspirations from her book how I developed my P.M.S. concept!
Here’s a breakdown of topics I’ll be discussing through the month of January.
Just for fun, I’ll be going back and forth from here to my Podcast to add interest & fun. I may even bring on a guest who is a champion organizer.
