Getting your home organized isn't just about clearing out old or unused items. That's part of it, of course. It's also about seeing lasting results. It's about having a home that functions more productively.
Sometimes we have busier weeks than others. It may be that everything comes at you at once. Relatives visiting, church or community commitments, kids' sporting events, family sickness and other things coming at the same time can overload us. It may leave little time for cleaning. Sometimes it is necessary to neglect cleaning to take care of more important things.
The good news is that an organized home doesn't get completely out of hand when neglected for a few days. When everything has it's place, it's likely that you and your family may do more putting away than you think. When your home is set up to be functional, it is much easier to care for even when you don't have time to do normal straightening and cleaning.
Once you are able to clean again, it isn't that difficult to get things back the way you want them. You may be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you can get everything done. One reason is because it hasn't gotten that bad thanks to your previous organizing. Another reason is because everything you need for cleaning is at your reach in the areas you need them. You don't have to run around trying to collect everything you need to get the job done.
One of the best home organization tips anyone could ever give is to just do it. After your home is organized and set up to work for you, you won't believe how much easier your household chores will become.
