You can't organize clutter

organization Jul 05, 2020

The idea of organizing has always appealed to me.⁣⁣

⁣⁣I would scour Pinterest for “how to organize a playroom” or “mud room organization” or “cute organized kids closet”...⁣⁣

⁣⁣I would buy all the supplies, and I’d assume within hours that the organizers “didn’t work” because I’d get it all set up - but I def. did not feel organized.⁣⁣

⁣⁣Little did I know that I was making one crucial mistake....⁣⁣

⁣⁣And now I know, you can’t organize clutter.⁣⁣

⁣⁣You just can’t.⁣⁣

⁣⁣It wasn’t until I figured out a system for letting go of the majority of things in our home that were taking up all of my time that I realized THEN, I could organize.⁣⁣

⁣⁣THEN, I could give everything a designated home.⁣⁣

⁣⁣THEN, I could implement organizational systems that made our lives EASIER and took up LESS of our busy days.⁣⁣

⁣⁣One of the most common things I hear is “I just need help getting organized”, and girl - I GET THAT.⁣⁣

⁣⁣That’s what I thought I needed, too....but not until I did the work in decluttering.⁣⁣

⁣⁣What about you? Do you try to organize first?
