A Few End of the Year Organizing Tips

from Aurelia Williams 

Can you believe it? Just a few more weeks and we will be entering into a New Year. Now that the end of the year is upon us, it may be a great time to spend the last few weeks of this year getting some areas of your life in order for the next year.

Here are a few easy suggestions that you can work on little by little, day by day, so that you’ll be able to start the year fresh in 2009.

1. Pick One A Day – Make a game out of it. From the day you read this message, count how many days are left in the year. Then, simply make a list of the things that you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t done. Simply list one task for each day remaining in the year 2008 and do a task each day until they are all completed.

2. Start a new calendar – If the calendar you used in 2008 didn’t work for you be sure to research and find a new calendar for 2009. Purchase a new calendar and get a jump start on filling in special dates or events you already know about.

3. Make a donation box – One way to organize your home is to take inventory of the items that you are no longer using and donate them. Grab a large plastic bag, a box or a bin and place the items that you no longer use but are in good condition into them for the purpose of donation. Donate the items to your favorite charitable organization. This is a great way to help organize your home and help those in need.

4. Organize your goals – If you haven’t already done it, now is the perfect time to create a list of what you would like to accomplish in 2009. Write down your goals in any order and be sure to keep them in a place that is secure. Once January 1st rolls around, begin working on your goals, one by one and keep track of how you are doing with them.

Following any of these steps can help you enter into the new year with a more fresh start. The important thing to remember is that you should never give up. If you slip up in your organizing quest, don’t quit. Just get back to it and/or enlist help.
