Organization is a skill we all need to learn and master. When we are clean and organized, we don’t have to worry about things getting broken, lost or misplaced. Now, I am not saying that you need to hire Cleanroom certification companies to come in and make your home or office hospital safe, but you do need to learn a few tips to make sure you are organized and functional.
Throw stuff away
The first thing that you need to do is learn to throw things away. In life we like to collect things that we like and may give us comfort. However, over time we will come across a lot of stuff that we don’t look at, use or have a sue for anymore. It is when these items start to clutter up our homes, we find ourselves in a problem. Learn to throw things away and create your own rules as to what you should keep and what not to.
Put stuff away in boxes, drawers, cabinets and other out of the way places. The first step in organization is knowing where things are and giving them their specific place in your home. For example, you want to have silverware in a specific drawer of your kitchen. You want to have kids’ toys in a toy box under their bed or in a closet. When you have random items grab a shoebox or a plastic container and start filling it up.
Labels are great for keeping you organized as well. These labels should be brightly colored and be written clearly in black marker. When using labels make sure that the glue is strong enough to stick to the containers surface. If for some reason it is not, then you can use box tape or another type of adhesive to keep the labels secure.
Staying organized and even getting started won’t happen overnight. However, the sooner you start and the more work you put into it the faster and better you will get at it.
