You Don’t Have To KonMari To Get Organized

You Don't Have To KonMariJust a quick PSA for you today. As a Professional Organizer (& mom, friend, human, etc.), I wanted to let you know¬†that you don’t have to:

  • Color-code your kids lego storage
  • Color-code your closet
  • Color-code your files
  • Color-code ANYTHING
  • Have a bulletin board command center
  • Spend hours on end styling your space
  • Put together a Family Management Binder
  • Color-code your household binder, recipe binders, coupon binders or any other binder
  • Own any binders…or clipboards, notebooks, or gel pens
  • Own a label maker
  • Use printables
  • Paint any surface with chalkboard paint
  • Become a minimalist
  • Decant pantry goods to glass jars…or hand soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, etc.
  • Have a traditional pantry
  • Make or follow a weekly cleaning schedule
  • DIY your own organizing bins, baskets or dividers
  • Store your shoes in shoe boxes, plastic or cardboard…in fact, I don’t recommend it.
  • Clean out your purse everyday
  • Fold or roll your plastic shopping bags
  • Know how to fold a fitted sheet the Martha way
  • Bless & thank your stuff
  • Entirely empty a room before an organizing project
  • Do it marathon-style
  • Own any gold office supplies (only if you want to!)
  • Alphabetize your spice storage
  • Store all your canned goods by type and size with the labels facing the same direction
  • Do KonMari, Feng Shui, Minimalism, Fly Lady, GTD, Simple, Slow or any other adjective, noun, verb, adverb, pronoun, preposition, conjunction, interjection, etc…

To get organized, but do feel free if it works for you.

That is all.
