I am guessing you're wondering why a Professional Organizer would tell you not to say your New Year's Resolution is to "Get Organized", so let me explain myself....
A broad resolution like that is setting you up for failure.
If you're here reading this, I think you are already cued into the positive effects that getting organized can have on your life, and you see the benefit - which is GREAT!
But "getting organized" is a very broad goal, that is not specific, measurable, actionable or time-bound enough to ensure your success.
Instead, break "getting organized" down into more achievable mini-goals:
Ask yourself what exactly is frustrating you about your home and start there. Is it a specific space? Is it a broader habit that needs to be counteracted?
If coming into your house every day gives you stress and anxiety because the hall is cluttered with bags and shoes and coats, tackle that area first. Pull everything out and declutter. Then, think about how that space could function more efficiently. Do you need to add hooks? Or a shelf? What can be removed to give you more space?
If the kitchen utensil drawer drives you nuts because the potato masher gets caught and you can barely open the drawer - start there! Think how satisfying (and easy) it will feel to check that off your list (finally!).
