Organizing Advice: See It Through to the End

Captain’s log: day 29. I am tired, but the mission is bigger than me. I remain hopeful that my organizing advice will yield fewer plastic bins and more creative solutions. There will be peace if we see it through to the end. 

Organizing Advice- see it through to the end

Today we made progress in a home where we tossed two dozen cardboard boxes from old phones and other electronics going back to the days of the flip phone.

If I ever find the guy who started the rumor that you need to keep the boxes that you bought things in because you’ll need them if you ever sell, well, we’ll be having a long chat, that dude and me.

By recycling the empty boxes, we were able to use the bookcase for keepsake books! What a concept.

Organizing Advice

On day 29 of my month of daily organizing advice, I’m tired, just like you are tired after you’ve gone two week’s worth of laundry. I usually am the Energizer Bunny, but maybe it helps you to know that everyone gets tired at some point. But you know what, getting tired from seeing something through to the end is a good feeling.

When you are tired, rest, but don’t quit.

Rest But Don't Quit


Maybe you think you stink at organizing, or you get bored doing the same thing over and over, but I see you getting better at advanced adulting.

If you are still trying to get motivated to get organized, I’m here to give you a lift. (See what I did there? It’s a dog… in an elevator…aka a lift.)

SORT and Succeed is how you make it through to the end of an organizing project. There’s a prize after each session…and you get to pick! Step 5 of SORT and Succeed is to Succeed and Celebrate, which is a good reason to see it through to the end. Personally, I’m looking forward to some time with my BFF very soon, because nothing beats time with your pals as a reward for a job well-done.

      Thanks, Trish, that’s very generous of you to leave a comment. Hopefully together we can encourage those who crave organization and the good things it brings, even when they feel like it’s work. It IS worth it to feel more peaceful, less frazzled, and not overwhelmed. 🙂
