5 Minutes To More Organized

The battle drums are rumbling…it’s time to suit up for clutter combat. Let Operation Organize commence! Rest assured, this is one battle that will reduce the amount of clutter in your life – quickly. defines the word “blitz” as an intense campaign. Today’s easy organizing challenge is to select one area of your home at random, and for five laser-focused minutes, de-clutter with all your might.

Go crazy, and do not let anything stand in the way of your blitz victory. If necessary, and to conquer more of the battlefield, call in reinforcements (kids, spouse, friends) to help.

  • The games in the toy room that you trip over daily – blitz it!
  • The utensil drawer in your kitchen that never closes – blitz it!
  • Your messy jewelry box – blitz it!
  • Your sock drawer – blitz it!
  • The mountain of old sticky notes – blitz it!
  • The stack of magazines you’ve been meaning to whittle down – blitz it!
  • The time commitment that has become a time sink – blitz it!

Enjoy the full-out assault on your clutter, and celebrate when you can proclaim MISSION COMPLETE.

Want Bigger Results? Instead of leading a five-minute blitz, try a 20-minute one. Not once, not twice, but five times this week.
