#7: Because Organized Canned Goods Make Everything Seem Better
So, your to-do list of organizing projects needs its own to-do list in order to be manageable. Still, you can tackle at least one household project today, something simple, that has a concrete solution. I prep for success by avoiding interior-design blogs that set unrealistic expectations (love you, Pinterest, but come on). Then I put on some good music, give myself a time limit of 15 minutes and start organizing: the mail, or one kitchen cabinet, or the first-aid supplies. It has to be something on a small scale, something that is done when it is done, a check-off-the-list-able thing.
