organizing tips

how to simplify life

My mission – get life organized. Knowing how to simplify life is one of the hardest things for women juggling every ball. But it’s a goal worth striving for. My organized life this year is going to begin with this living simply blog series.

This is a “do as I say, not as I do” blog series. Despite having a lifestyle blog I admit to not being an expert at organization! It’s become a major priority.

A few days a week I will share one small step to eliminate clutter from home, work, family and personal life. One small step towards one large goal.

goal of my organized life

These may start as simple steps that don’t seem impactful. We are starting off easy. I believe that starting new goals with massive overhauls right away never work. Just like running five miles if you’ve never run in your life would be hugely overwhelming and likely stop you from running again, the same is true for life steps. I tend to go “all in” and end up overdoing and stopping. This process will build so it creates habits.

step 1

Take one garbage bag and walk every room of your house tossing as you go. Throw away anything you immediately see and don’t need. Toss it. Let it go. If it’s not necessary, helpful or something you smile when you walk pass throw it away. Bonus points for doing two trash bags.

what’s next

That’s it for today! Job well done. See? We are taking baby steps on this journey! Each step we will repeat what we did the previous steps, if applicable, to develop habits.

Be sure you get my newsletter or follow me on Bloglovin’ so you know when new goals to simplify yo’ life come out!
