You've done it! You Started with successes, Took small steps, Yes, you found homes for your things and you Let things go! Now it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor: Easy upkeep.
Here are a few ways to do just that.
- Value the clear space. Resist the urge to drop and run! You worked hard to create clear space, so you should enjoy the accomplishment.
- Put your systems to work. If you've set things up based on your styles, easy upkeep should be a snap. And, even if the setup isn't perfect, it should work well enough that a few tweaks can take it from good to even better, so...
- Adjust where necessary. A little trial and error can be a necessary part of establishing a system that works. When you've got a strengths-based foundation, trouble-shooting is easier because you can actually put your ideas to the test. Every time you adapt an existing system, it gets better and it informs future organizing as well.
Organizing by STYLE doesn't guarantee a spotless or clutter-free home, 100% of the time, but creating systems based on your styles enables us to have a plan of attack when life happens and clutter resurfaces.
And that is easy upkeep.
