18 Ways to LOVE Your Habits, Your Home and Others This Valentine’s Day

There are various stories on the origin of Valentine’s Day and they all emphasize love. So whether you have a romance to celebrate or not, why not spend some time this February to show love to yourself, your home and to others? As a Professional Organizer, many of my clients desire to establish habits that will make them feel less overwhelmed. I share six of these habits that you can try today! Our home can be a sanctuary by making very slight adjustments in our spaces. While de-cluttering your home, share the love with others by using the six questions below to edit the stuff in your life.

LOVE your habits










o Don’t put it down, put it away
o Commit to sorting mail immediately
o Completing laundry means finishing the last step of “putting it away”
o Make your bed each morning
o Do your best to make a decision. 90% of clutter is due to not making a decision.
o Commit to a daily pick up

LOVE your home










o Surround your home with items you love and enjoy, remove the clutter!
o Use colors and textures that make you happy
o Add flowers in your space to bring some cheer.
o Clean up the dust and clutter by playing “beat the clock”- see how much you can get done in 20                    minutes. Keep playing until you are finished.
o Get the electronics out of the bedroom to bring more calm
o Make sure your mattress and furniture are comfortable

Donate items for others to LOVE










o Does clutter weigh you down? Tackle a small area first.
o Could someone use this [insert item here] more than me?
o Have your tastes changed and is it time to move this thing on?
o Are there small kitchen appliances that you never ever use?
o Do you own more towels and sheets that are necessary to your life?
o Could you live with less clothing?


Here’s to you!
