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?
