Keeping your organized spaces tidy
Have you ever organized a room and wondered "How am I ever going to keep it this way?"
Here are a few tips to help you with maintenance:
-Every day (or every few days) set a timer for 10-15 minutes and do a tidy session. Remove obvious trash and have a basket handy to fill with items that need to go to other rooms. Relocate the items from the basket when the timer goes off.
-It is always more fun with a companion. Get your family involved in the tidy session (make it a game) or ask a friend to come over to help with the promise of tea and cookies after.
-Make "rules" to keep the space tidy. Do you have a rule that flat surfaces should be clutter-free at all times? Is there a basket near the door to collect items to go elsewhere? Have you committed to only keeping the last 3 issues of each magazine you subscribe to?
Organizing is only half the battle, it's maintenance that makes that lasting impression. Good luck!
