As a professional organizer I often hear people say, “I sure would like to get more organized but I just do not have the time.” Contrary to what most people believe, getting organized does not have to take up a lot of your time! There are many things that you can do when you only have a couple of minutes.
Here are three things you can do that only takes five minutes and makes a huge difference in the appearance of your home, making it look organized and uncluttered.
1) Make the Bed! It is usually the largest item in the bedroom and if it is made, the room looks 75% organized and uncluttered. You do not have to make sure the bed is perfect just pull the comforter back over the bed and put the pillows at the head of the bed.
2) Clear off the Bathroom Countertops! Put the toothbrushes in their holders and toothpaste away in the cabinet or drawer. Slide make-up into the drawer, put combs and hair brushes in a drawer and pick up towels.
3) Pick up Laundry! Hang up clothes; put clothes in a hamper or drawer. Do not leave them hanging on a chair, bedpost or thrown on the floor. Place shoes inside the closet or under the bed.
These three things take less than five minutes to do daily and will make your house look more organized and uncluttered. Just remember that anytime you have unexpected guests, they will most likely want to use your bathroom. Now you will not have to worry what it looks like!
