How do I start my home organization project?

Start With a Clean Out

Rule number one of home organization is that you can't organize until you get rid of your clutter. If you have too much stuff for your space, no matter how well you use bins and shelving, you will never really be organized.

So take the first step, purge!

If you have a big house this may seem like a daunting process, but you just need to go one room at a time and one step at a time. A great purging tip: choose a staging area! It may be your living room, your garage or your playroom. You should choose a space that has a clear floor and an area where you can spread out. You may want a sound system or a TV (depending on your productivity) but the key is that you can bring stuff in that room, spread it out, identify what you can get rid of, and then clean it up!
