Organize your home In Two Minutes
Organizing your home can sometimes seem a little overwhelming. Well, maybe a lot depending on the day! Not everyone is uber organized, including me, so breaking down projects into two-minute tasks every day helps make clearing clutter more manageable and easily attainable for us busy moms. So let’s Organize Your Home one task at a time…
Two Minute Organization Task #1
Make your bed every morning. This probably takes less than 2 minutes! It’s kind of obvious, but making your bed really does start your day off right, instantly making your bedroom look neat and orderly. It also helps perpetuate other good habits throughout your day. There’s also a few studies that have linked making your bed to increased happiness! Bonus!
Two Minute Organization Task #2
Tackle cluttered desk and kitchen drawers one at time. Take two minutes each morning to sort through one. Just one. Take everything out. If you find something that doesn’t belong there, put it in its proper place and throw out any unwanted, broken or expired items.
Two Minute Organization Task #3
Organize and clean your fridge and pantry shelves one at a time. If you’re already pulling out the milk for the kids morning bowl of cereal, take two minutes to pull everything else off the shelf, quickly wipe it down and only put back things in that will truly be eaten. I like to do this task every week when I bring the groceries home. The fridge is a lot less full so the job is super quick. Check out this post if you want to Organize Your Whole Kitchen Efficiently.
Two Minute Organization Task #4
Clean out your closet of unwanted things. Follow the golden rule of closet organization – If you haven’t worn it in a year, you probably won’t wear it again. Doing this at the change of every season keeps your closet from becoming a bulging mess. I keep a bag in my closet for things that need to be donated. When it’s full, I put it in the car and it’s off to the Goodwill. Here’s how to Keep Your Closet Fresh and Clean.
Two Minute Organization Task #5
Sort your mail. Do this when you bring it in from the mail box. Have three main categories – FILE, TO DO/PAY, or TRASH. This makes it much easier when it comes time to sit down and actually tackle the sorted piles. My husband takes time every week to go through our respective baskets and then file or pay the bills.
