What happens when real life gets in the way of your best laid decluttering plans?
Welcome to the first in a series of “Follow Up Friday” bonus episodes where I follow up with past guests to see if have made and changes or progress since we last spoke.
Today I follow up with Alicia, a mom-to-4 who craves a more organized home but also struggles making decisions on what stays and what goes. You can hear my full original episode with Alicia by clicking the link below.
- With limited time, Alicia needs to make the most of small pockets of time she finds in her day.
- Alicia needs to create a master list and breaking that list down into smaller, more manageable tasks. By doing this, she can know what to do when she has 10 or 15 minutes, rather than spending that time figuring out what to do.
- When it comes to involving her kids in the organizing process, she needs to start small. Maybe one bin or one type of toys instead of the entire room.
- Getting kids invovled in the organizing process may seem a bit daunting and painful at first, but remember you are teaching important life skills.
For even more tips on finding time to organize and making the most of the precious few minutes you do, check out my episode with Jessi. Jessi is a nursing student, full-time nurse, girl scout leader and mom. She feels overwhelmed by her house and lack of time to make it what she wants.
