I’ve read hundreds, nay more realistically thousands, of organizing articles and tips. And they pale in comparison to a simple five-step process I’ve developed that works for me. To use my system, you will need two dice and a chocolate bar.
It goes like this.
- Walk into a room.
- Roll the dice.
- Do, clean, toss, or put away as many items as the sum of your dice. For example, if you rolled snake eyes, deal with two things.
- When you have completed that, treat yourself to a piece of chocolate! (Freezing the chocolate slows my consumption.)
- Go into the next room and repeat until you are out of chocolate or sick to your stomach, whichever comes first.
Try it. You’ll be organizing, de-cluttering and cleaning to chocolate heaven!
