You’re not alone when you ask this organising question

There’s one question I get asked by clients, friends and readers more than any other question.

It’s a question that makes me empathise with them so much because I know exactly where they’re coming from.

Marcia, I want to get organised but it’s all so overwhelming.

Where do I start?

There are different ways to approach this question but before we even start with the practical aspects, you need to do this:

First of all, relax and take a deep breath. Then get your mind in the right space.

Realise that organising is a process and that you won’t have a totally organised home in one hour, despite what you see on television.

Remember the home makeover shows have many organisers and stylists behind the scenes making the space look beautiful. You only have you (or if you’re really blessed, a friend or family member to help you).

Now that we’ve got that part settled, let’s talk practical.

1. Start with the area of your home that bothers you the most.

This is usually a space that you see when you first walk into your home, or it’s a space that you use all the time. If you feel drained when you enter your living room, start there. If you can’t bear to choose clothes every morning because your wardrobe is too cluttered, then that’s probably a good place to start. The benefit of choosing this area is that when you feel overwhelmed by the rest of the house you can go to this one space, look at it and feel inspired.

2. Decide what you want to have happen in that space.

Do you only want clothes in your wardrobe, or do you want shoes and handbags in there too? If you’re not sure what you want, it’ll be easier to let your standards and boundaries slip and, before you know it, you have a disorganised space once again.

3. Declutter

You can’t organise clutter. Get rid of everything that shouldn’t be there. You may need to move some things to other rooms and some things may need to move right out of your house!

4. Organise what’s left according to your personality and style

Not everybody is a minimalist. Some of us need to surround ourselves with our treasures. It’s all okay.

Your system works as long as you can find what you’re looking for relatively quickly (within a minute).

5. Maintain

Last but not least, do a quick, 5-minute maintenance session in each major space every week so that your space remains organised.

So tell me, where do you think you should start?

  1. How’s it going, organisingqueen?

    Do you not wish you had a chance at being Instagram cool?

    Have you ever thought about how to be an Instagram Influencer?

    Picture this: You wake up early in the morning, even before your alarm goes off.

    Roll over, check the cell.

    Make your way to your page.

    You‘re flabbergastered at what you see: Over 832 likes on one of your pictures! There, you can see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures–over 738 on a single photo alone.

    You rise out of your bed, stalk to the kitchen. You want a drink, so you put the kettle on for some coffee, and check Instagram again.

    Bam! Another 63 likes.

    And here comes another message. It’s from some follower asking about your life, and giving you daps on your third official month of practicing yoga.

    A smile appears on your face as you receive another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    It’s another message coming in. You glance up at the clock–almost time for the gym. You’ll have to hit them up later.
    Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

    Now, let’s learn to take control of your Instagram.

    Imagine if you increased your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    It is not difficult to do, although almost no one does. Just check out our website. There, you will learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad…easily.

    Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, doesn’t seem that far away.

    This is all great, but you have actually got to put in the work to make it happen. OK, you got me, it’s not real work.
    1. Click https://jabbertune.casa
    2. Plug in your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes are going to be sent to your 3 most recent uploads. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you’ve got to do more than just want it–you have got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    See you soon.
