Okay, everyone knows those people … the born organizers. You know the ones, they have a place for everything and a mental file card system reminding them where everything is. These are the people that live by “a place for everything, and everything in its place.”

You, conversely, are lucky to get out of the house with your keys and handbag or wallet. You often leave behind the lunch you painstakingly made the night before, and you root through the dirty laundry looking for the blouse to go with the suit you need to wear TODAY for a presentation you're about to give. Oh, and the notes for the presentation … you're writing them on the train on your way into work.

You open your favorite magazine only to find one more article extolling the virtues of organization and you resolve to start right away.But where do you start when you’re so naturally disinclined to organize?

Start small

Trying to implement everything you read in that latest article or blog post by the perfect mommy, choose just one area. Work on your new habit a little each time you think about it until it becomes a habit.

While many people tout the belief that habits form in about 21 days, the truth is that creating automaticity (what psychologists call habit formation) may take much longer than that to develop. A 2009 study by Phillippa Lally, et al., at the University College London, participants averaged 66 days to establish a new healthy habit such as changing their diet or exercising.

As entrenched as your current bent toward messiness and disorderliness is, making the switch to organization won't come overnight. Nor should you expect it to come naturally.

Pick one

Consider starting with just one of these items. Add it into your life in as seamless a way as possible so that it becomes “organic.”

  • Place a wastebasket in each room, near the doorway. If the receptacle is not handy or visible, using it won't be automatic. Set another trashcan near where you sort mail. Notice, this is not a new place to sort mail that has a trash can, it is moving a trashcan to where you already sort mail, but it on the sofa, the kitchen table or just inside the back door.
  • Add hooks to the back of each door. Dropped sweaters, jackets, scarves, and backpacks quickly clutter a space. A liberal quantity of hooks encourages hanging up at least some of these.
  • Use plastic tubs. Chances are if you're organizationally challenged, your family members are as well. Place a basket or container for each person in the mudroom or on the way up the steps. In goes shoes, toys, books, and anything else that one might leave behind in another room. At the end of each day, each person only has one thing to grab on their way to bed.

Organization habits are especially important when your home is on the market and needs to quickly become "show ready" at a moment's notice. Your real estate professional may have other ideas to help you quickly "stage" your home, so ask.

During certain times in the year, it might be less desirable to be outside, and we may find ourselves feeling stuck in the house. How do you get out and enjoy your community without having to be out of doors? One great way is to plug into your areas museums, galleries, and other local indoor attractions.

Months of discovering 

Depending on who and where you are you may find it undesirable to be outside for even long enough to go from the building to the car during either winter or summer months, but that doesn't mean that you want to hibernate at home for the whole season! It can be during these times that you set out to discover your area's indoor attractions.

Museums of all shapes, types, and sizes

There are many kinds of museums, geared for a variety of audiences.Examples of museum types include science, art, oddities, auto, music, heritage, etc. In each of these categories there include sub-categories and focus on an equally varied range of folks from experts to families and everyone in between. Some museums have sponsorships making them free to the public while others offer specials that are meant to draw patrons in during certain times or days of the month.

Exhibition halls 

Exhibitions can refer to art and usually move through and pop up at different times and places throughout the year. A lot of times exhibition halls will host a variety of shows or collections of businesses or ideas, that can be wide-ranging including anything from bridal, gun, RV, toys, and home and garden. The timing of a show coming together can correlate to when they are popular, like bridal and home and garden in the spring. Although shows typically charge admittance, they can give a wealth of ideas, chances to meet folks and opportunities to become aware of local professionals to fill your needs when the time comes.

Aquariums 

With such a wide array of sea creatures, you can usually find an indoor aquarium without traveling too far. These can be delightful places to enjoy no matter the weather outside and give you a chance to tour the globe with its beautiful colors and lively creatures right from your backyard. 

Seek a professional’s help preventing the not so inevitable fever 

Ask your local real estate agent for a list of local indoor attractions that they have put together and inoculate yourself from the dreaded cabin fever. You never know if you may find your favorite new place to visit time after time.
