Home organization is not easy, especially when you work outside of your home. Mounds of dirty laundry, hungry kids, school homework and dinner yet to be made do not make for a happy return to homely warmth after a tiring day in the office. So what do you do to streamline your daily routine and practically every aspect of your life?

All women can be termed ‘working’ once they start a family. There are people who look up to you and expect you to deliver, even if it is your 3-year-old who wants his mom to build the best Lego castle, after what seems like millions you have already built.
The work becomes all the more demanding when you have a full-time job that consumes 40 precious hours every week.

Every working mother faces her own set of unique challenges and circumstances. You will have to work out a plan that suits you best, and helps you manage your family and career better.

Let’s look at how you can go about taming the dragon of time management in your own unique way with these tips for how to get organized at home.

The idea of living a minimalist, uncluttered life is one that many of us aspire to. We are willing to de-clutter our rooms, own fewer possessions, and simplify our lives so that we can have less to clean, less to organize, less to worry about, and more money to spend on the things that matter.

However, many of us feel like we don’t have the energy to de-clutter and often get stuck at where and how to begin. While it’s always tough to get rid of the “good” old stuff lying around our homes, it is possible to de-clutter your room with less pain than you might think.

Here are ten smart strategies to help you efficiently de-clutter your room, drawn from various experts.

Life Hacks to Get You Organized

3040339-poster-p-1-your-guide-to-finally-living-a-more-organized-life-in-2015_ZIvK0Q

If you’re determined to be more organized this year, don’t make the all-too-common mistake of expecting it to happen all at once.

“People decide they are going to overhaul their lives in January and they are going to do it all at one time,” says Regina Leeds, who has written nine books on organization, including One Year to An Organized Life. “That is setting yourself up for failure.”

Instead, use the New Year as an opportunity to plan out and put in place a few key steps that will help you get organized over the course of the year, rather than getting there all at once. “The first thing to realize is that the whole of anything is overwhelming,” says Leeds. “You have to break any goal or new thing you want to learn into smaller increments.”

Organized people aren’t born; they’re built. Here are the habits that you can cultivate to be just like them.

We all know that one friend or coworker who is super-organized. The person who is punctual, finishes projects with time to spare, and always knows exactly where to find what they need when they need it.

Instead of hating that person, why not figure out how they do it?

“Organized people are not born; they’re built,” says John Trosko, founder of OrganizingLA, a Los Angeles-based organizing firm. “The people who emerge as ‘organized’ use a variety of tools and methods to accomplish their goals and priorities in life.”

Their systems become habits, says Trosko. Here are seven things organized people do on a regular basis to stay on top of it all:

Face it: it’s January. Dreary weather is matched only by the dreariness of a house stripped of holiday decorations.

Children slog through the great dull stretch between New Year’s Day and Spring Break, no longer distracted from their schoolwork by the excitements of the holiday season.

December’s crowded calendar gives way to January’s social slump. Video rentals soar as comfy sweats replace dress clothes on Saturday nights.

Take heart! There’s another side to January!
