If you’re like me, you can always use a little help in the organization department.
The first step in becoming organized is to eliminate the clutter and unused or unneeded items that cause you to feel unorganized. Getting rid of those items frees up space, helps you find and access what you need more easily, and in the process unclutters your mind which allows you to become more efficient. The more efficient you are, the more free time you have to do the things you love to do.
How about we start off with something easy. Ten minutes doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but I’m always amazed at how much can be accomplished in a short amount of time if I stay focused. Try finishing one of the below projects when you find yourself with an extra 10 minutes while … you’re in the waiting room at the doctor’s office, arrive early to pick your kids up from school, have extra time before leaving for work, you’re stopped in traffic…
20 Things To Do with an Extra 10 Minutes
- Clean out the fridge and put the emptied leftover containers in the dishwasher
- Make tomorrow’s to-do list
- Paint your toenails
- Weed through your magazines and catalogs – keep what you’ll really
read and toss the rest
- Schedule an appointment, RSVP an invitation, respond to an email or
return a phone call

room-labeled scissors in every room you use them
