I recently got a new phone but wasn’t ready to part with the old one yet—just in case. You never know when you’ll accidentally drop your phone and break it or expose it to moisture. When I went to stash my old phone in the drawer of my office desk, however, I discovered a few other tech relics of the past—including two other phones and an iPod.
Whether you’re interested in finally creating an organized “drop zone” near your entryway or you’re taking the leap and adding custom closets to your home, the first step in the process is an in-home consultation.
Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. If you’ve ever had a big project in front of you, or you’ve felt the desire to make a big change, you’ve felt this way. When it comes to keeping your home organized, it can feel daunting knowing you’ve got a lot of work ahead. But some of those ideas floating around in your head may also be unfounded.
We talk a lot about how you should break down big organizing tasks into smaller ones. (We even have a 30-day checklist to help you get organized without feeling overwhelmed.) But sometimes, an organization project warrants your full attention over several hours. Yes, we’re talking about that major catch-all space where your car is supposed to stay: the garage.
We’ve all felt this way before: You face what seems like an insurmountable pile of work before you—that big work project that’s got to be wrapped up by the end of the quarter, your reach-in closet that’s got boxes piled to the ceiling or your home office desk that’s covered with tax documents and bills. But rather than being motivated by the amount of work you’ve got to do, you just get overwhelmed. It just feels easier to keep putting it off.
Spring is finally on the way. As the temperatures rise and rainstorms replace wintry mixes, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning.
