How do you measure up when it comes to home organization? It’s tough to know the answer to that question, isn’t it? Everyone and every home is different, and what feels organized to one person may feel chaotic to another. But with one handy home organization chart, you can see instantly where you excel, and where you can improve. Let’s take a look!
This home organization chart has some good things going for it. One, it includes all the main living areas of the average home. Two, it hits the nail on the head as far as where clutter most often happens in each of those rooms. Three, it gives you the ability to direct your focus to those areas, removing a lot of the overwhelming anxiety that can sink your home organization efforts. All that’s left is to put it into action!
Personally, I’m not a fan of home organization charts that exceed one or two pages. It just adds to the paper clutter that’s already constantly infringing on my life. A one-page look at ways to declutter my home is actually helpful. I can hang it up where everyone can see it. Anytime I have a few extra minutes, it’s easy to glance at the chart and spend a few minutes on areas where clutter is taking over.
For example, how do you feel when you look at the following picture? How does the left side compare to the right? The left side makes me feel anxious, and even a little overwhelmed. But the right side makes me feel instantly more calm and relaxed. If you experience the same feelings, that’s a good indicator of how a cluttered home could be impacting your life and level of stress and anxiety. Even if you’ve been unaware of it!
Set a goal to declutter and be more organized. Every time you come home, you will feel the difference organization makes.
