Bite Size Organizing Projects

One of the biggest challenges to getting organized is, not knowing where to start.  Big organizing projects like “organize my office” can feel overwhelming…even hopeless.

Breaking down organizing projects into “bite-size” projects will help reduce those feelings of stress and overwhelm.  When you focus on the smaller, more manageable tasks, it is easier to take that first step.

Here are 10 small organizing project ideas to help you get started on your organizing mission:

  • Clear off your desktop
  • Spend 15 minutes going through a paper pile
  • Go through your “junk drawer”
  • Get rid of old software
  • Go through 5 files in your file drawer
  • Go through your mail pile
  • Sort and organize your office supplies
  • Recycle business magazines that are more than 6 months old
  • Sort through your business cards
  • Sort through your business books and let go of any that you will not refer to again

Many of these “bite-size” projects can be done in 15 minutes or less!  Remember, each completed project is an accomplishment and milestone to be celebrated.
