People think organizers must be very organized at home, and some are. But many of us face the same pressures you do to keep things together. For example, my place is currently out of control. And when that happens, I tend to let it get worse and then experience anxiety over the state of things.
There's just one thing to do: put on my big girl panties and do something about it! Today, despite nice weather and the call of more interesting things to do, will be devoted to cleaning and organizing. Tomorrow, laundry. And the payoff will be an anxiety-free Monday, starting the week off on the right foot.
I am reminded of my own advice: Try not to let things get out of control in the first place. Put things away, and don't let things stack up. Just 15 minutes of straightening up a day can make a vast difference. Keep that snowball from taking you down!
So off I go, making my bed and delving into dust and other messes.
