How many times have you walked in your door, look around at your home and say to yourself, "I've just got to clean up this mess!" It happens to all of us at one point or another. Sometimes things just build up until we don't know which way to turn. So instead of trying to fix the problem we just let it grow until it gets out of control. Don't throw in the towel just yet. Here are 3 Great Problem Solvers to help you get organized.

Problem #1 - Motivation
Sometimes just getting started can be overwhelming if you try to tackle everything all at once. Do not defeat yourself before you get started. Follow these simple solutions to ease the tension.

Solution
• Break it down:
- Take one room at a time.
- Make a list of things to accomplish in that one area.
- Don't procrastinate - jump in and get started.
- Work on that one room steadily; don't get distracted by the whole.
- Complete that task - finish one room before tackling another.

Problem #2 - Time
It is easy to become discouraged when we think about how long the project will take so we sometimes do nothing instead. Time is precious so use it wisely. Here are some answers to help you manage your time for the project.

Solution
• Have a Plan
- Make a commitment to get started and stick with it.
- Set aside a Saturday morning or week day evening.
- Give yourself a time allotment for each task.
- Even if it's only 15 minutes on one room to start with that is better than no time spent cleaning in
any room.
- Keep cleaning supplies and garbage bags handy to use.
- Check things off as you complete a task.

Problem #3 - It's All Up To Me
People tend to take things all on themselves. This is not the right attitude or approach when it comes to getting organized. You don't have to feel alone. How does that work?

Solution
• Delegate Responsibilities
- If you have a family, chances are you did not create this mess alone get the other members of your family involved.
- Share the wealth- let each member chose a room to straighten out and encourage them as you do
yourself to stick with it until it is complete.
- Reward your workers and yourself when the tasks are finished.
- If you are single recruit family or friends to help you.
- An offer of a free dinner and spending quality time together can go a long way when reaching out
for help.
