Where does a person start with disorganization mess in house and garage?
Pick a room, divide it into 4 sections and start tackling it. As you get a space organized, keep it up by committing 10 to 15 minutes a day ensuring there is no re-piling of stuff. Little accomplishments leads to completed goals!
I would make three sets of boxes or three sets of clean large trash bags or clean boxes:
Touch everything only once.
Be careful about getting too emotional about things and
remind yourself that you’ve had years to do this and
if you have not worn that piece of clothing in 2 years, or used to that coffee cup in 2 years, it’s time for it to go.
One room at a time! Once closet at a time! One dresser at a time! Make sure whatever you decide is to be thrown away actually gets thrown away and not stored in the garage!
