Read on to find tips to get yourself organized, no matter your personality type!

Organization Tips for the Procrastinator

For those that procrastinate, the idea of even getting started is overwhelming. Often times in the process of putting off this necessary task, getting the closet organized becomes more difficult because of how bad we think it’s going to be. Procrastinators stew on how much effort it will take to complete, even when that’s not the case!

How to get Started?

Get yourself set up with some doable goals and realistic deadlines. Once you’ve made a list of what needs to be completed, start with the easiest tasks first. You’ll find that checking your organizational tasks off will inspire you to keep going, and help you avoid putting it all off in the future. Even better? Plan a gathering at your home (the ultimate deadline!) to give yourself some drive to get it done.

Organization Tips for the Sentimentalist

It’s definitely hard to let go of things sometimes, but for some people, it might be near impossible! Items can be difficult to let go of because they have emotional significance while other items stick around for less obvious reasons. Maybe you haven’t used that appliance in ages, and that shirt hasn’t fit you in years but you still can’t seem to let them go. Either way it’s time to meet the feelings head on so that you can put your space to better use!

How to get Started?

When trying to decide if it’s time to let go of something, try the KonMari method, which says that you should only keep items in your life that bring you joy and get rid of anything else. This is a great way to retain the stuff that means a lot to you while getting rid of the rest. Use this method to purge closets, cupboards, dressers, garages and more! If the items are not meaningful or useful to you, put them in the donation pile. Another helpful tip? Take a picture! Take photos of the treasures that are difficult to get rid of.

Organization Tips for the Perfectionist

For the perfectionist, it might be hard to make a mess of things in the process of making things better organized. Use your visually oriented personality to motivate you!

How to get Started?

Start by sorting and organizing the visually unappealing items, and store them out of view to ensure that your home looks lovely and put together all of the time. Next, find storage boxes and other organizing items to keep your things in order and accessible. Use your perfectionist personality to subdivide big organizational projects into smaller ones, and you’ll be using your space to its fullest potential in no time!
