Decluttering – Personal vs. Common Space

When you are just beginning your decluttering process, it can be overwhelming to decide where to start first.  What’s most important?  Common spaces where everyone gathers and contributes to the mess?  Places that guests see?  The overflowing pile of papers in your office that distracts you from the work you need to be getting done?  Or the heaps of clothes and toiletries in your bathroom and closet?I find with decluttering that leading by example is often the best way to go.  (…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first heard about this through Dan's free podcast, which I learned about through Dave Ramsey. I'm hoping to gain access to a group of individuals who will guide me in launching my first entrepreneurial start-up and create a successful home based business.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I'm currently employed as an optometrist in a private practice setting. I'm working on my first blog and just learning how to monetize it.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I do enjoy my career as an optometrist, but I feel as if a part of me is missing. I've had to become so scientific and factual with this line of work that I feel my creative side has been all but snuffed out. When I was younger I loved reading, writing, and photography. I loved spending hours outside and taking in the beauty of the world around me and enjoying the quiet and solitude of nature. Now I spend my days in a dark little room with no windows. I don't want to leave my career, but I would like to create more balance in my life allowing time to soak up the sunlight and nurture the creative side of me.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
My husband and I are currently working on Dave Ramsey's debt snowball and I can't even imagine how wonderful it will feel when we complete that (about 2 years out right now)! We are also hoping to start a family soon which will be a whole new journey.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'm great at organization and detail management. I come from a family of hoarders and am proud to say that I've been able to break that cycle in my personal life. I've recently started a blog with some of my best tips and inspiration to help others get more organized as well.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?

3 Goals When Getting Organized

Posted on January 12, 2016 at 5:57pm 9 Comments

Getting your things organized can feel overwhelming at times, especially when you are just starting out and don’t really know where to begin.  When this is the case, sometimes it helps to just ignore the abundance of advice out there and just keep three things in mind when you are looking at an item and trying to decide what to do with it.

Your three goals should be:

  1.  Minimize “stuff”.
  2.  Maximize the use of space.
  3.  Find homes for what you do keep that are…
