It’s GO Time!

The National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (which we are members of) has designated January as GO (Get Organized) Month. The holidays are over, it’s cold outside, and it is a great time to get our homes in order before we are enticed to spend more time outdoors enjoying warm, sunny days!

There are many health benefits, both mental & physical, to being organized. Following are just a few that we have found cited by numerous sources:

  • Save time by not spending time looking for things.
  • Save money by not buying items you already have.
  • Instill confidence by knowing where things are in the home.
  • Reduce stress related to lost items or lost information.
  • Manage many activities and deadlines more efficiently.
  • Gain valuable storage space within your existing quarters.
  • Gain more energy and peace from your organized home while eliminating unnecessary tasks.
  • Have more time to do things you really want to do.
  • Have a more attractive and inviting home.

Cleanliness and order are not matters of instinct; they are matters of education, and like most great things, you must cultivate a taste for them (

We have found that most of us procrastinate or don’t know where to start when it comes to organizing or re-organizing our personal spaces. Here are a few suggestions for making a plan and sticking with it:

  • Make an appointment with yourself on a regular basis (daily/weekly) & make it a priority by putting it on your calendar.
  • Break your organizing tasks into small pieces. This will make your projects more manageable & give you a sense of accomplishment as each task is completed.
  • Partner with a friend for accountability and encouragement.
  • Consult with a Professional Organizer for a clearly, laid-out plan of attack(Transition Tamers can help with that!).

We would love to see before & after photos of your organizing projects. Feel free to share them on our Facebook page or at

Happy Organizing!
