If you worry about making organizing decisions in your home because you feel they won’t work, chances are that some options that you do try won’t. There are different organization options because people are different; those differences mean not all techniques are going to work. Finding the right techniques that meets your family’s needs is important and for this reason I don’t like any technique that involves spending money, because if it doesn’t work you will need to try something new and you have already paid out money on a product that should have revolutionized your organization in your home.
Looking At The Different Organizing Options
There are different options which can all help you find the point where your work life and family life works in harmony, the jobs and tasks around your home fit into the right pattern and are all completed.
For many people this ideal just doesn’t seem possible, but it is possible, the system that you use might differ from other people, but if it works for you then don’t worry.
Creating Routines And Schedules
For me it is about creating lists and schedules so I know what I am doing and when. The basic daily tasks that need completing around my home get done on automatic, but I still write them in my diary every day; I like crossing something off my list, it makes me feel good.
This doesn’t work for everyone and that is fine; there are other ways that you can keep your life in order.
The People That Never Seem To Clean
You know the people, their home is perfect and yet you can’t ever remember seeing them lifting a finger to clean. Their secret is to keep cleaning all the time, they never put an item down, it goes away in their home the instant it’s finished with.
I am so jealous of these people too, but I know that it is not possible for me to achieve this type of cleaning; I have dogs, children and a husband who all add to the lived in state.
However, these people have managed to keep their lives organized in a manner that suits them.
Whatever options you try whether it is assigning chore lists or writing appointments in your diary, finding the option that meets your needs is important. Understanding some systems that you try just won’t work no matter how hard you try, is important. It allows you to let go and to try a different method.
It is important to move forward and not worry about the system that didn’t meet your needs.
Spending Money And Organization
I am against spending money on organization products, while I want to try out a system I don’t want to have wasted my money if the system just doesn’t work. This is why I am against buying new expensive items to add to the clutter that you have in your home. My principle is, if there is nowhere to put an item it means that I have too much stuff and I need to find ways to reduce the items I have and not look for more storage options.
If you are adding items of furniture or boxes and baskets it will fill up the space you have and this to me is adding to the clutter and can long-term make it worse.
Therefore, the best organizing decisions you make are the ones that are best for you and your family. They must work and be manageable, so you are able to keep up with your organizational skills to keep on top of those jobs, which you need to do around your home and the appointments you need to attend.
Don’t feel obliged in making decisions about how you organize your home and life which don’t meet your needs or your budget; choose the right option for you and your circumstances, it is possible that these will change in the future and if something no-longer works then change how you manage your organization of your home and life.
