We read the New York Times article below and thought it had a few relevant points about how to deal with organizing tasks. Jane Brody, Health and Science writer for The Times recommends Robin Zasio’s book “The Hoarder in You: How to Live a Happier, Healthier, Uncluttered Life.” One of the points made was to start with an easier task to feel that sense of instant gratification when accomplished. Take your linen closet, for example. With possible company coming for the holidays, now is the time to straighten up your towels and sheets. Designate areas for twin flat; twin fitted; double flat; double fitted; queen flat; queen fitted – you get the picture. Towels should be sorted by size: beach, bath, hand etc. If each shelf is labelled appropriately, it will be simple for company to find what they are looking for in case they are the type of guests we all like to host who actually change the beds before leaving! This is an incredibly easy task and we guarantee you will feel better when completed. Remember to re-purpose sheets and towels you no longer use. They make great drop clothes, cleaning rags, and dog towels.
