Organization O-Tip of the Week: Take It One Day at a Time

Our O-Tip of the week series we will be providing valuable “OT-Approved Life Hacks” to provide you with simple and helpful solutions for living.

Spring cleaning and organization can be rewarding once finished, but a daunting task before you begin.  Don’t stress and remember that it doesn’t all have to happen in one day.  In fact, we suggest stretching it out by focusing on one area/room/closet/drawer (whatever you can handle) each day.

Need more accountability?  Try creating a daily schedule for the month with one space (drawer/closet/room) per day.  Crossing it off at the end of the day provides a great feeling of accomplishment!
