One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is to get organized. Yet, it’s easier said than done, and getting organized can be a tall order. But, what if you could get organized in 5 minutes or less each day? Here are my top ten organizing resolutions you can actually keep:
- Memorize the credit card number you use most. You’ll be amazed at what a time saver this is.
- Register online with the Direct Marketing Association’s registry to keep junk mail to a minimum. Less paper clutter means less stress.
- Throw out any markers or pens that are out of ink…at work and at home.
- Throw out any mismatched socks. If the mate hasn’t shown up yet, recognize that it’s probably long gone.
- Throw away all expired medicines from the medicine cabinet.
- Throw away all expired foods from the refrigerator.
- Discard all of the unimportant receipts cluttering your wallet. Let’s face it; you can’t return the Starbucks latte, so why hang onto the receipt?
- Say no to the request that’s causing you the most stress. You don’t have to be a martyr. Save your time and energy for things you really want to do.
- Make your bed every day. Your room will look neater, and you’ll start your day feeling calm and collected.
- Throw away that box/bag of wires/chargers that’s been collecting dust in your closet for years. If all of your electronics are functioning, there’s nothing there that you need.
