Help! I am a rather disorganized individual. I’ve tried systems for keeping organized, but it seems like the best thing for me to do is just make new habits (vs. card systems, daily checklists, etc.). I know this can be done because I’ve trained myself to wash a dish after I use it, and also to straighten my office before I leave work. These are about the only organized things I do.
Is there anything you all have learned about keeping things clean, especially as it relates to laundry and general clutter? What happens is that my areas (storage, car, bedroom- I still live with my parents) get horribly messy. This happens in part because I am generally late and “don’t have time” to take care of stuff. Also because I start projects, leave them out, and don’t finish them. I’ll do a huge clean-up once every few months, and then I can’t find what I need because it is all put away.
Are there any systems or habits that could be helpful? Preferably ones that could be a lifestyle change and not just a “quick fix” or “monster clean” when things get too bad to handle.
