Professional organizer Ann Custer shares how you can turn out to be more organized in everyday life.
Custer possesses Wow Organizing Services and travels across southwest Virginia and North Carolina. She says statistics show the top 3 disorganized rooms in a house are the bedroom, garage, and home office.
The initial step in organizing is de-cluttering and being honest with yourself. Ask yourself, “How often do I use this?”
Changing little habits can have a major effect.
Custer says, “Take 10 minutes at night and go around the house and put up things that belong in their home that’s where clutter begins, we don’t put things back where they need to go.”
Issues can begin when everybody keeps things they realize they never use.
Custer refers to another statistic – commonly everybody just utilizes 20% of their stuff while 80% goes unused.
Custer recommends rolling their shirts and when they have worn a thing after laundry put that shirt in the back so they allow themselves to wear their different shirts. On the off chance that they simply fold their shirts, their most worn shirts will remain at the top and will in all likelihood not wear their shirts at the base since they won’t see them regularly.
“The purpose of organizing is seeing what you have so you can find it quickly and easily and not be stressed out,” said Custer.
Another proposal, hang all people’s clothes in their closet a similar way. After they have worn something hang it back up the other way. That way they can tell which clothes they wear more frequently than others.
Custer even has a cool hack for keeping people’s coordinating socks together. Get a little gotten sack for everybody in their home. Put all their dirty socks taken care of and when laundry comes put the bag in the washing machine and dryer.
Readiness is vital.
Custer stated, “Take a few minutes at night, give yourself some thoughts of what needs to happen tomorrow, what do I need to make sure to take and have all of that at the front door or whatever door you go out of so you can leave the house stress free.”
One of Custer’s customers, Betty Kingery, said working with a professional organizer gives people a reality check and merits the speculation. “If you feel like you don’t have the money for it at the time, think about how much money you spend on things during the week that could have I done without that so really set aside some money.”
