#12. Home-it 5-Piece Wall Organizer ($8.50 @ Amazon.com)
Keep mops, dustpans and brushes neatly against a pantry or garage wall with this easy-to-install five-piece organizer. A rolling ball keeps a tight grip and automatically adjusts to different handle girths (heh heh), so al you need to do is pop it in and let it hang.
#13. Stay Positive
Any challenge that needs to be overcome in life will be simpler if you keep it in a positive perspective. The crucial thing is to starting somewhere and pushing yourself with a positive goal. That’s not always easy. As good old John Cleese puts it: “It’s easier to do trivial things that are urgent than it is to do important things that are not urgent, like thinking. And it’s also easier to do little things we know we can do than to start on big things that we’re not so sure about.” While he was in fact referring to being creative at work, his sentiment may also apply to changing patterns in one’s lifestyle. Let’s face it, any change is difficult. Mind you, the sooner you isolate why you need to get organized, the sooner the whole process will kick off and you might actually start to see pleasing and positive results. Heck, you might even have fun.
