Each year as we start the new year, we think of ways to make a change and improve our lives. Did you know that organizing is one of the top three goals each year? Throughout the month of January, I will be offering 31 tips to help you have Your Most Organized Year Ever. Implement just one of these tips, tools, techniques or tweaks this year.
Do you have the same “conversation” with your kids about organizing their rooms each week?
A peek in your kids rooms shows clothes on the floor and trash everywhere?
Your kids may be overwhelmed and confused by your asking them to organize their room. They may not know where to start or what’s most important. Organizing is a skill that requires prioritizing and decision making. Just like in school or sports, organizing skills take practice and repetition for success. Help your kids learn these skills by helping decide on what is a treasure. Keep these items in a box, drawer or bin. Acknowledging the treasures first puts organizing decision making in a new perspective. By coaching your kids through their organizing you are connecting with them too. Make this Your Most Organized Year Ever by helping your kids distinguish trash and treasures.
