Imagine. . .
No more messy closets, messy drawers, no ‘junk’ drawer. This can be you with only 15 minutes a day. Yes — only 15 minutes, and wouldn’t it be worth it?
Sound good? You know there has to be a catch, right? Well, there is no catch. If you spend 15 minutes a day, this really works.
A number of years ago when my kids were young I heard this idea on a radio program. I have no idea who it was, or what program, but I have used it over and over again. Of course, I get side-tracked and forget to do it and when the ‘messy-ness’ starts coming back, I go back to my ’15 minutes’ plan. I started yesterday in my kitchen – my miscellaneous drawer… sometimes called the junk drawer.
Here’s what you do:
Pick a drawer, closet, etc., each day and begin organizing it.
Spend 15 minutes
If it is not finished- (let’s all admit there are some that take more than 15 minutes) go back to the same one again tomorrow, and the next day if needed. (The nice thing is that it is OK to do part of it and go back rather than putting all the pressure on and ‘not’ doing it at all)
When that one is finished, start a new one the following day
Continue on. Within a number of months every drawer, closet, and area of your house will be clean and organized.
Now, if you are like me, when I had kids at home, by the time I got through them all, it was time to go back to the first drawers. That’s OK, because the 15 minutes a day really isn’t hard and the feeling of order and accomplishment is well worth the time. So continue.
One more example of Small things Make a Big Difference.
*** PS – Let your kids help you. They love pulling out all the stuff under the sink or the pots and pans, etc. They pull it out, and you organize and put it back. It becomes a pretty fun game for them.
Enjoy your day.
Blessings! Feel free to share.
