Everyone has a different idea of what clutter is.  For some people their room can look like a tornado hit and "everything looks fine".  For other people, just having a few things out of place is traumatic.

Clutter is....stuff.  Stuff that is out of place, that should not be there, that doesn't belong in the room, that is not useful.  Clutter is whatever you think it is.  It's all about how "you" feel.

But  "clutter causes stress".  In the back of your mind you are probably thinking  "I should do something about this mess".  But you don't.....    You'll get to later.  But you never do.

Don't let clutter rule your life.  Get to it now!  Don't wait!

Just remember a simple rule.  If you bring it into a room .....take it out!  If it doesn't belong in the room ....take it out!  If it bothers you....take it out!

By letting clutter pile up you will only create more work for yourself later.  And you know that old saying "later never comes".  It will be there forever.  It will keep building and building until you are so overwhelmed that you don't know where to start.

By getting into the habit of putting things back where they belong instead of just leaving them where you dropped will cut down on your work and your stress.

Yes.... it does take a bit of practice to break your old habits.  It feels uncomfortable to do something completely different than the way you've done it for years.  But..... once it becomes part of your everyday life you will notice how much more time you have and how much neater and less cluttered your house looks.

And your running around to "get ready for company" will be cut down to a few minutes of fluffing a few pillows.

Your house does not need to look "perfect".....but living without clutter will give you many benefits that you never even thought of.

Happy Organizing!

Organize Your Kitchen For the Holidays

It's getting near the Holiday season and I can smell the food already!  Cookies, pies and all kinds of great foods that we only make a few times a year will soon be seen in our kitchens.

Are you ready to start cooking?  Do you have everything you need?  Do you know where all of your special dishes are?  Your cookie cutters?  Your special molds?  Those seldom used special recipes?

Having an organized kitchen is the key to a stress free holiday season.  If you've been out to the stores lately you will see that all of the baking supplies are neatly stacked in the aisles ready for you to buy.  They are teasing you and reminding you to stock up now!

Start cleaning out those cupboards and make a list of everything that you will need to start planning your holiday season. Give yourself plenty of extra time so that you will enjoy the process and not feel forced to have "fun" in the kitchen.  By being prepared ahead of time and having everything you need at your fingertips you will be able to enjoy the atmosphere and the holiday spirit.

Baking and cooking for your family and friends for the holidays should be a fun and enjoyable experience.

By being prepared and having everything in your kitchen organized and ready to go will give you one less thing to be stressed about.

The holiday season is meant to be enjoyed.  Being organized makes life easier. Make it a family event and teach your kids how to make those special holiday cookies!
