Having an organized home can save you money (by not losing things in your home, you do not have to replace them when you are in a situation where you need to have that item) and time you would have spent looking for things you are not even sure you have. Sometimes, people lose cash and checks and bills because they do not have a preordained place for these and other items.
An important aspect of beginning to organize your home is that you do not try to work on too much at one time. Some ideas for things you can do to get your home to where you wish it to be are that you do at most one room a day and try to keep a time limit on how long you are supposed to work in that room. Another idea is that you can go by doing a certain number of things every day, such as vowing to pick up and put away 15 things every day and (this is the important part, in my opinion) looking at the positive change you have made in the room or area and really, truly appreciating your own work.
An idea that can assist you when you are trying to get organized is to create zones in your home, just like a kindergarten classroom has. In these classrooms, you will see that there is a zone for art and a zone for reading and a zone for writing and a zone for puzzles and a zone for...well, you get the idea. Something that really helps in creating zones is to have a preconceived notion of the activities in your home that you would like to make easier to do and possibly as a result, more pleasant.
A good way to deal with all those containers you want to buy for all your stuff is to wait until you have the measurements for the shelving, cubbies, and other places you want to place your storage containers. After all, it does no good to have a container that is too big for the space you have for it in your home. It just becomes another thing you do not have a place for and with which you do not know what to do.
