Laundry_RoomA common complaint is feeling there is just too much, not knowing where to start, or procrastinating.   Professional orgaziners recommend the following tips.

1.  Survey the area you intend to organize and make a check list that can be attacked in stages.

2.  Write down goals that are achievable to finish the project, and create a reward for yourself when you are finished

3.  Inventory your items, what can go and what must stay.  Be brutally honest with yourself, to get the best results here.

4.  Write down a benefit for finishing this project such as "When my laundryroom is organized, I will actually enjoy doing laundry."

5.  Maximize your energy, coordinate doing the work when you feel the most energy and are least likely get distracted.
