Strive for a good system, Not perfection

The New Year is here and everyone is starting organizing challenges and trying to get their houses decluttered. Sadly less then half way through alot of people give up because most generally they have the wrong mind set.

They want perfection. They strive for perfection. And that's where you go wrong.

I can not tell you how many times I have been one of those people! And still to this day I catch myself striving for perfection.

I've given up so many times because its not staying a certain way. But, what I have had to learn is my system is not working. And it never will work if that's all I'm striving for.

You have to find a system that works for you. Start with the little things that effect your every day life.

Our master bathroom has Always drove me crazy! By the time the morning is over everything is here and there, because once again my system was not working. 

I found a small caddy at Dollar Tree that I absolutely love. I also found a DYMO label maker at Goodwill for less then three dollars! So I created a "station" for things we use daily in our bathroom. So far it has worked wonders for us. Hopefully it will stay that way!

Don't start out making drastic changes to your home or they will not work. I don't mean to put a damper on your organizing party, but I'm just telling you what I have learned over time. I know, its so tempting to! You want to change everything! But dont set yourself up to crash and burn! Start small and I promise you will see progress!

I wish you all the best! Feel free to post your progress in the comments below!!
