For people who make annual New Year’s resolutions, “Get Organized” always comes in the top 10, sometimes first or second.
While the first of the year is a good time to start, it is like losing weight. Anytime of the year you start is good. The sooner you start, the sooner you reap the benefits.
I was especially pleased to read in Better Homes and Gardens magazine last year that the Editor in Chief, Gale Goodson Butler, addressed this issue. The magazine took a survey which showed that two-thirds of their respondents said they wanted to “get rid of extra stuff.” They answered that it was a change that would make their lives better in the new year. “Out with the old, and in with a new streamlined way of living,” they said.
Gale went on to state my case that “Decluttering is perhaps the most universally attainable, most satisfying way to free up space and bring cool, calm order to your rooms. She notes that this is not the “simplest” thing to accomplish, because “in real life, decluttering is its own special art form, equal parts perspiration and perseverance.” The more you work at it, the more you want to continue doing so, because what stays are only the things you use and love.
I couldn’t have stated it any better Gale. That’s why professional organizing exists, to help people reach their goals faster and easier, simplifying and customizing the process for you. We at Time-Savers Professional Organizing Services, Inc. have been helping people accomplish this since 1998. We love seeing the client’s sense of satisfaction and relief!
