Tackle the Spot!
You know the one. It is the spot where you dump everything when you come home from work or school. For some, it is that little counter to the side of the fridge or the island. For others, it is the table in the foyer. It doesn’t matter where it is for you. It’s probably a mess.
Here is what you do… get an empty box and dump everything in it. Everything!
Wipe the spot off so that it is nice and clean. It should sparkle. Step back and admire it for a moment.
Ok, now, it is time to get to the real work. Set yourself up at the dining room table or the family room floor. The dogs will absolutely help you if you choose the floor. It’s time to sort.
Yes, we’re going to sort through the box. Make general category piles for mail, bills, books, things that need to go in other rooms etc. Throw out anything that you don’t need. Once it is sorted, put each stack in its place. Where does it live when it is put away.
This really shouldn’t take too long; it only seems overwhelming. Trust me. That’s it. You did it!
Tackling the Spot is complete.
Pat yourself on the back. Better yet, write yourself a note and stick it on the fridge. Remind yourself that you can and will get organized!
