Three Myths of Home Organization

Three Myths of Home Organization

There’s a little misinformation about home organization and getting organized I need to clear up.

These are the myths of home organization:


Myth #1: You have to be born organized to live organized, right?

Wrong! Some people mistakenly believe if you don’t have organization in your blood, it’s going to be nearly impossible to make the changes to how you live and enjoy the simplicity of being?organized.

For instance, my wife definitely does not have organization in her blood. But she is a completely different person today than she was the day we got married. She’s come over to my side and has proven to herself that being organized beats the heck out of living with the nasty side-effects of clutter.


Myth #2: You have to spend a lot of money to have the right kind of storage.

That’s definitely not the case.

First off, there are so many discount stores fighting for your business some of the latest organizing systems are being practically given away and certainly will get the job done.

Secondly, storage doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact I use more items from discount craft stores and yard sales for storage than I do from the big name stores.


Myth #3: It takes a lot of energy and motivation to get your home organized.

This is absolutely false.

It’s really only a matter of changing the way you do things and thinking differently about the excess of material things people today own.

And you certainly don’t have to take it all on at once. There are some simple rules you can start to live by that will make disorganization a thing of the past.

Even if you are not the cause of the clutter and it’s a spouse or kids living with you, you can all learn what it takes and just make a few simple changes to live a better life…being organized.
