One of the essential principles to remember on your path to be more organised is that it’s not about perfection. The main goal should be to ensure that your items are accessible and that you have an efficient use of space.
We conceptualised these organising challenges with that goal in mind. Further, we recognise that for most people, there is a struggle with only a handful of areas or clutter hot-spots but ‘it’s the little things’ that affect your peace of mind and how you feel about your home.
De-cluttering by whatever method or measure you use is THE foundation for all organising efforts.
Therefore, we intended to cover a broad range of rooms and mini spots within the home. If the particular challenge did not resonate with you, you could take a break, share your space and your own tips. Jump in at any point, but make sure you focus on the specific challenge through to completion.
We introduced a new space every two weeks- pacing yourself is so important in the process!
Along with our tips, we sought to include a mix of inspirational photos and our favourite product finds.
Most importantly though, we believe that you should keep your organising solution true to you. For instance, maybe a key basket to drop keys in works better for you than hanging keys on a rack.
We skipped a dedicated post for three of the challenges that would have been published directly on our Facebook page. They were so straight-forward and simple to do (once you dedicate the time to do them).
