Does this sound familiar? You’re determined to organize a specific area and you’re excited! You start and find something that doesn’t belong. You bring that item to another room and notice that area is out of order as well; you begin organizing there. When your time is up, you’re deflated because you’ve started many projects and finished none! That’s called zigzag organizing.
TIP: Focus & stay in 1 area at a time. If items belong elsewhere, place them in a “Relocate” box. Set aside 15 minutes at the end of your allotted time to distribute items where they belong.
