Getting organized in 2016 doesn't have to be a feat of epic proportions. In fact, just a few simple steps can take your life from clutter to clean. To help you out, we've enlisted the help of Chaos To Order, Chicagoland’s premiere organizing company since 1990.
Monica Friel, the brains behind the operation, is an expert organizer and a pioneer of the organizing industry. She's appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Steve Harvey Show, HGTV, and Hoarding: Buried Alive and has been featured in publications such as Better Homes and Gardens and Woman's Day.
So, what are you waiting for? Clarity and cleanliness in 2016 are just a few steps away...
Don’t be afraid to let things go. Donate what you can and take the tax deduction. If you’re not going to use it, get it into the hands of someone who will. The effort of trying to sell it or save it for someone is not always worth the hassle of holding onto it.
The less time you spend in want the better. If shopping is your hobby, find a new one. Getting organized will help give you a better inventory of what you already have.
Take the Time
Organization takes discipline. Carve out time in your schedule to keep things in order. It will be worth it in the long run.
As we begin to rely more on technology, we need less paper. Consider digitizing what you can. It can be as simple as taking a photo with your phone.
Don’t Give Up
When you look at the big picture, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Break the project into smaller parts and, if you get stuck, give us a call!
