Monday probably the most dreaded day of the week.
Today I want to talk to you about first impressions. Not someone else’s but yours.
If you walk in the door and your eyes see clutter you are not welcomed.
So lets work in fixing that.
Walk in your door. What do you see?
Piles of mail, shoes, umbrellas how about jackets? Maybe it is books or backpacks? Did you have to step over or push something aside? Was it cluttered, messy or jumbled?
That is not welcoming. Not peaceful. It is stressful and chaotic.
OK so lets fix it. Here is where you start.
Clear it all out. Yes, All of it.
OK Cleared out?
Now think about what really needs to be there. What was there that you actually use?
Ok . Now lets organize it with hooks, shelves, cubbies, a tray or a bowl.
Hang Hooks in Your Entry Way –Hooks immediately inside the door for backpacks, purses and keys. You walk in the door; they come off and go straight on the hooks. No more fumbling for keys, finding jackets or backpacks, wondering where you left your purse.
Bonus if you have a trash bin to toss junk mail!
Do this one thing until it is habit and I’m telling you it will save hours of lost time and exasperation. For those of us who use your garage Kudos! It doesn’t matter what door is your entry door. Put the hooks immediately inside that door (I use my laundry room as my drop point. It’s perfect.)
You deserve to walk in the door and your home should be your sanctuary or your haven. If you organize this area your will be surprised that your home will be inviting and leave you with a feeling of being relaxed and welcomed home.
Make your home your haven. You can do it.
You will thank me tomorrow when your keys are right by the door and you hit the snooze button one more time.
