Are you someone who believes they are neat and organized? Your floors may be clean and your tabletops might be dusted, but the minute someone reaches for a cabinet door, you gasp. What no one knows is that your drawers and your closets are a mess! Are you a pack rat that wants your friends to believe that you are the most organized person on the planet? It is time to change your cluttered ways and become that person you want to be! It might seem like a daunting task, but you will feel much better about your home and your organization skills once the job is complete. It is time to roll up your sleeves and get started.
You need to attack the most cluttered areas first and, for most pack rats, these tend to be the bedroom closets and the bathroom vanity cabinets. Take a trash bag, roll up your sleeves, and, for the bathroom, put on some elbow length gloves if you have some! This precaution is just in case things might be worse than you thought. Try to make a few rules for yourself. Since you have held onto everything for this long, you might be reluctant to get rid of a few items. It is time to be ruthless so everything you have not used for at least six months must go! It does not matter if it is something you might need again five years down the road. In all likelihood, it will be expired/dried out by then, so it needs to be tossed. Once everything has been removed from the cabinets, start scrubbing. You will feel much more motivated to keep these bathroom vanity compartments clutter free if you make them look as good as new now.
The next task is the bedroom closet. Out of the 200 potential outfits you have hanging in there currently, you only wear, at the most, 50 of them. It is time to remove all of those outdated items of clothing and donate them! You also need to remove items such as towels and sheets from your closet. Those need to go in your linen cabinet. Once you start on this organization/cleaning process, you might not be able to stop! Before you know it, your garage, kitchen cabinets, and buffets have all been organized and cleaned.
You will feel great once your bathroom vanity cabinets and your bedroom closet is clutter free! Good luck breaking your pack rat ways and embracing a more organized lifestyle!
