feeling like you're hitting a bump in the road when
it comes to getting organized? Here are the 11 common
roadblocks to organizing success and how you can easily
1. I'm overwhelmed and frustrated! or I don't know
where to begin.
Organizing several rooms is a big project and it can
be intimidating. Sometimes the size of a project will
stop you before you even begin. Where do you start and
how much will it cost? Getting organized can take time,
but it also requires planning and goal setting. Take
a walk around and make a note of the things that need
to be done. Then decide which of the tasks are priorities
and will be done first. Begin by doing one task at a
time, a baby step, for a short period of time each day.
You will be amazed at what you can get done. Use this
as motivation to continue working towards your organizing
goals. And keep in mind that you do not need to get
everything done at once. One baby step at a time is
all you need.
2. My whole family is sloppy.
Get your family onboard by developing habits that say
goodbye to clutter. Establish a set time in your home
where everyone spends time getting organized. For example,
at 6:00 p.m. every night have everyone spend 15 minutes
putting things where they belong. Don't forget to set
up a reward if everyone plays their part.
3. I don't have the time.
If you don't make the time, you won't have the time.
Start with a project that only takes a small portion
of your day. Even 10-minute projects are better than
no projects at all. Accomplishing just one tiny goal
can give you the motivation to keep going to organize
4. I will never be able to get this all done.
Don't think that you have to do it all alone. Get help.
Make it a group effort. Get together with your family
or friends to organize your home.
5. I'm very sentimental. I cannot get rid of anything.
Perhaps you are finding that you are having a hard
time parting with belongings. Going through belongings
and trying to get rid of some of them can be difficult
for some people. However, being too attached to belongings
can often lead to piles and piles of clutter. This can
cause added stress, so it is important to let go of
some items. Determine what is most important to you
and only keep those items. Consider donating the remaining
items to charity where someone else can enjoy them.
6. Someday I will get to it.
If you are having trouble getting started with becoming
organized, perhaps you should consider calling a professional
organizer. A good organizer will help you identify the
reason you collect and hang on to stuff and can customize
a program to start you on the right path.

7. I can't deal with all of this paper.
Your computer is the biggest clutter-eliminating device
in your home. Instead of a paper filing system, use
a visual filing system. Scanning documents into your
computer will eliminate a lot of paper clutter. Also,
a good method of keeping paper under control is to limit
the amount of room you allow for certain items. For
example, memorabilia for your children can be kept in
a plastic container. However, once the container gets
full, you cannot add anything more until you remove
something. Finally, keep in mind that paper is something
that is constantly coming through a home. Once you have
paper organized, you need to maintain it. This means
going through mail and other papers on a regular basis.
8. I'm going to fail.
If you think you can do it, you can. If you think you
can't, you won't. It's true. You can organize your home
if your attitude is positive. Remember that any task
you complete, no matter how small, is a success. Reward
9. It's too much work.
Do you find getting organized as being too big of a
chore so you do not even want to start it? You can make
organizing fun. Set a timer and organize for 5 minutes
to see if you can 'beat the clock.' Organize to your
favorite samba music. Organize while you're chatting
with your best friend on the phone.
10. I can't afford to get organized.
It doesn't take a lot of money to clear out clutter.
You do not have to go to the store and buy a ton of
the latest containers and other organizing tools. Check
out garage sales as well as thrift stores for organizational
items. You will find a lot of options without busting
your budget. You may even discover storage items you
can use for organizing by looking through your own home!
11. I keep getting interrupted.
Designate set blocks of time to get tasks done. If
this means early morning, schedule it. If it means closing
the door, shutting off your cell phone and shutting
off your computer, do it. Also, let people around you
know when you do not want to be interrupted. Discover
the obstacles that get in your way and determine how
to remove them.
