The One Thing You Should Never Do When Getting Organized

Fall is a good time to get your life organized–the chaos of summer is over, it’s a new season and a clean slate. This month marks back to school and is also known as “the January of fashion,”–so in almost every way it’s the start of something new.

If you’re embarking on life-changing organization project this fall, you’re probably overwhelmed by where to start and how to do it. For this reason, we went right to the source–asking a professional organization expert what the one thing you should *never* do when starting the process of getting organized:

“The one thing you should never do when getting organized is to start too many projects at once,” says organizing expert Alejandra Costello. “This can lead to feeling overwhelmed by all of the tasks that need to be done and all of the decisions that need to be made, which may eventuate in getting stuck and stopping all together.”

Interesting! So, how does Alejandra suggest that you get it done? “Start one organizing project at a time, finish it completely, and then move onto the next. For example, if you’re organizing your office, start with the area with the highest priority – the desk. Once completed, move onto the area with the next highest priority – the filing cabinet, and so on. Focusing on one project at a time will ensure that you aren’t left with a plethora of half-finished projects around the house that you may never complete!”

If you’re organizing your home office, Alejandra says that places like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are a great place to look for pretty/functional desk accessories and organizers. From pencil holders to desk lamps, framed artwork and folders, there are tons of cute ways to get your #deskgoals.
