This tip is especially for all you busy Mom’s out there. Crisscross organizing is a term I use to explain what happens to Mom’s when they scatter their efforts over multiple rooms in their home which results in not one room completely clean and organized. Compartmentalizing the clutter in your home can be daunting, hence the reason the crisscrossing occurs in the first place.
Instead, for noticeable and impressive results, work to clear the clutter ONE room at a time, even perhaps one area in the room at a time. If you find things in the room you are working on that belong elsewhere, stick them in a bin or laundry basket so when the whole room is finished, you can easily distribute those items to their appropriate homes. This eliminates your urge to organize other things in other rooms in your home because you are waiting to distribute the items that belong in the other rooms or areas of your house until you are entirely finished in one area. That was a mouthful to say!
You’ll be amazed how much quicker the clean-up goes if you follow this tip!
