We love our homes when they’re organized. Although individual taste rules, an organized area keeps similar things together so that they can be found quickly. With spring cleaning, I start in the kitchen and because the garage is my throw-out area, I save it for last. Organization isn’t inherited. It’s learned. Try not to be overwhelmed by your present condition. Set small goals. Break jobs into small pieces, a drawer or cupboard at a time. Your mission is to get your living space organized so that you have more time to enjoy family or friends. Or you might want to have people over and suspect they like peeking into closets! Don’t think for one minute that this part of the organizing mission is not self-respecting. It’s prefectly fine to want to present our home (and ourselves) in the best light.
