It just feels good to B Organized Today (get it LOL). It's nice to be in a space that’s open, airy, and functional. However, organizing can be quite a challenge at times. Especially when more than one person (or little persons) lives in the home. So how do you get everyone in your home on board with getting and staying organized?
First off, keep in mind who else uses the space. Bring them in on the organizing ground floor. Ask them questions like; "Do you think this will work here?" "Should we donate this?" "Does this work for you?" By going through the journey of organizing as a team, knowing where things belong will be a group decision. Having everyone on board means they will always know where things are and where to put them back.
Start small when creating new systems in your home. One section at a time. Let the newness of this organized space sink in. Then start on the next section together. Remember a complete overhaul of your home will take time, support, and a plan. Make sure you get everyone excited about the new organizational systems so it will remain that way.
It's normal to have a some hiccups for the first few days when getting used to the where everything belongs. Now that things are set up to accommodate the way everyone in your household lives, it will soon begin to naturally make sense.
