I probably don’t even need to ask this…but are you ready to start 2021?
Never before have I wanted to buy a new calendar and hang it on my wall as much as I did this year.
Who’s with me?
Now, it’s a new year with new problems and new wonders…so let’s talk about how to get organized for it.
We won’t tackle organizing like everyone else does, though. To get organized so you stay organized, you need to approach it ADHD Success Style.
After all, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed by the clutter after Christmas. Even though my house and office are mostly clutter-free most of the time, something about the holidays lets the clutter pile up.
Holiday Organizational Wake-Up Call
During this time of the year, there’s just a lot going on and new stuff coming into the house. Plus, I have to admit, I get just a little bit lazier over the holidays. I let clutter pile up in places it normally wouldn’t. I look at a pile and tell myself, “I’ll handle that later.”
Plus it doesn’t help that very few people come over now. Nothing says, “Get up and get organizing” to me quite like having friends and neighbors ringing my doorbell.
But why clean up if no one is going to see it?
Let me tell you why – your ADHD brain works better without the clutter. It’s as simple as that.
So here are the organizing steps we’ll follow in our house this week to get beyond the holiday clutter:
How To Get Organized For The New Year: ADHD Success Style
1. Tackle The Clutter: If you don’t like or use something, get rid of it. Don’t box it up and put it in the basement. Get it out of the house. Make room for new things to come into your life in 2021 by clearing out the old stuff.
2. Return things to their Homes: Gather up the stuff you are going to keep that’s lying about and take it to it’s home.
3. Find New Homes For The New Stuff: Find good homes for the gifts you are going to keep. Homes that are easy to use and make sense for you and your family.
