Do you have clothes piling up in your home? Unopened mail overflowing on your kitchen counter? Household cleaning left undone? Other items cluttering your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may be looking to get yourself organized. You're possibly saying to yourself that sounds great, but, you're really not sure how to do this. Well, you may want to consider these tips to get you started with getting yourself organized:

Tip One:

Make organizing simple and easy by creating a daily To Do List. It is recommended that you consider writing or typing your To Do List on a regular daily planner calendar or consider an electronic daily calendar. This will be helpful in assisting you in staying on track with your tasks and chores that you want to achieve on a daily basis.

Tip Two:

It is recommended that you create your daily To Do List on a weekly basis. For example, if you wanted to start your daily list to run Monday through Sunday, just be sure to create your new To Do List for the following week either the Saturday or Sunday prior to your current To Do List ending. Just ensure that your daily list is easy for you to create and is flexible to your needs.

The daily list that you create can be based on things you need to do at your home, chores errands, etc..., that you want to accomplish on a daily basis. Just try to be as accurate as possible in creating your To Do List. You will find that as you continue to create your daily list, this will reinforce your efforts to stay organized. In the long run it will be easier for you stay on track of your daily chores and tasks.

Tip Three:

Follow through on completing the tasks and goals you have set for yourself on your daily list. You may want to consider checking off the items on your list as you have completed them as reinforcement of your accomplishment for that particular day. If you find that you are unable to complete a task or chore for a certain day, then you may want to consider readjusting your weekly schedule to reschedule this item on another day. Just be sure that you allow yourself some flexibility for needed changes in your To Do List in order for you go stay on track with your organizing goals.

Tip Four:

Schedule certain chores or tasks that you do consistently on a weekly basis on certain days of the week that you may think are the most likely days these items can be accomplished. For instance, you may want to schedule your grocery shopping and laundry days for the same day each week. It is likely that you complete certain chores and tasks on a weekly basis.

Tip Five:

You may want to consider doing proactive maintenance at your
home. This means to clean and pick-up items in your home on a daily basis. It's so much easier in the long run for you to keep things tidy and organized at your home if you consistently stay in the habit of doing this. By the way this also includes going through your mail on a regular basis to reduce clutter in and around your home. In the long run you will be glad that you incorporated this method as part of keeping yourself organized.

Tip Six:

Consider setting up a filing system to organize your paperwork at home. You may find by organizing your documents that you may be able to access information more quickly and easier.

Stay persistent, consistent and on track of keeping yourself organized. Ensure that the organizing system you have established for yourself is easy, flexible and user friendly in order for you to continue keeping yourself organized to accomplish your goals.
