Today I am sharing tips on how to organize your home for the new year. I can’t wait for you to see all of the organizing tips I have put together.
You know, it’s that thing we are supposed to do in January to start out the year with our lives in order.
It involves cleaning out all the cabinets, closets, and drawers in your home to start the year off fresh.
For years I struggled as I was not the type to spend the entire week between Christmas and New Year’s organizing.
Did I want an organized home? Yes.
It is just wasn’t one of my favorite things to do.
And then I found the book Organizing For the Creative Person.
If you struggle with organizing and are what is often called, a “creative person” then you need to read this book. It changed my life!
The book is described as “Organizing for the Creative Person is the first book on organization and time management to draw on the startling discoveries made in recent years about right-brain and left-brain dominance. Creative people – whether they are artists, homemakers, or executives – often have particular problems with organization. As scientific studies have shown, creativity resides in the right hemisphere of the brain. However, the right hemisphere lacks any concept of time, structure, or detail, and has no analytic ability; these traits reside in the left brain. If you’re the kind of person for whom conventional checklists and filing systems don’t feel natural, you’re probably right-brain dominant. Organizing for the Creative Person offers dozens of practical, down-to-earth techniques to help you find the organizing style that works for you. And since opposites attract, the book has a special section on how to deal with left-brained spouses or coworkers (and how they can deal with you).”
You really should get this book. It explains the way creative people should organize their homes. It also explained to me why I didn’t like to file things away. The explanation is not only brilliant, it is so true!
Ok, enough said.
Even though we are creative, we still need to organize our homes.
I actually enjoy organizing now. Now that I know how to do it the right way!
It shouldn’t be a surprise that this past year I have written a lot of blog posts about organizing your home.
Let’s check them out together.
Putting together this blog post sure got me inspired.
