How to organise (2) - start with your worse area

This is going to be a brief how to organise tutorial answering the question "Where do I start?"
I thought it would be fun if you joined in and worked on something that's bugging you in your own home.

Start with the area of your home or life that bothers you the most.
If you can't bear to choose clothes every morning because your wardrobe is too cluttered, then your wardrobe is a good place to start.

If you don’t know whether you’re coming or going, and you constantly feel overwhelmed, then maybe you need to start working on your time.

If you don’t even feel like going into your kitchen, then you know that’s where you need to start.

The point is that it differs from person to person and also according to your situation.

Why do I say this?
1. You will be most motivated if you tackle your worst room first.
2. You tend to get results quicker.
3. Once you start, it becomes easier. And it’s kind of addictive once you get organised in one area.
4. You gain momentum!

Let me know in the comments if you're playing along and which area of your home or life you want to tackle first.

Over to you…

Next time
Your vision for your space

I took your advice this weekend and tackled my side of the bedroom floor. It piled with dirty clothes, clothes that don't fit or need dry cleaned. It is motivating to get one area done. I have to pace myself though becuase then I get burned out too quick. I'm doing a combination of your 10 minute de-clutter tips and tackling the worse area. It's working for me.
