So I wrote a post today on Apartment Therapy about motivation to organize. I have ways that I motivate myself but I'm always thrilled when readers open up and tell me their tips and tricks. You'll have to read the entire (but short) post here--and don't forget to read the comments! For me, the two comments that really rocked were;
- I find having company is the best motivation to get organized! Plan a party!
- I have a DVR and love watching "So You Think You Can Dance" which is three-hours per week. During times I want to clean, I don't fast forward through the commercials but instead clean up around the living room and put things away during the commercial (EVERY commercial). I'm always surprised at how much I can get done in 7 minutes! And if I get too involved in the clean-up I don't have to rush back to the TV, I can just hit the rewind button. :-)
