10 Wonderful Benefits of Your Organized Life

Can I Really get organized? Me?

When I was first married I didn’t have a clue about organization. My mom had tried to teach me but I wasn’t very interested (and she made it look easy)! I had a lot of things to learn about homemaking, organization, and how to achieve an organized life! I became a willing student, because of all the benefits I knew there were.

10 Wonderful Benefits of Your Organized Life!

This week, we’re going to talk about four areas that, in my early years of marriage,  I studied! As if I were taking a class in school, I read books, did experiments, took notes, and memorized facts. I evaluated different methods, and applied what I’d learned. And, little by little, I became more and more organized.

Here’s an event that is just the kind of thing that helped me back in the day: over 70 other real-life, real-talk women and who are all so excited to share their stories and the lessons they’ve learned along the way about organizing and streamlining your home. No need to leave your house, hire a babysitter, or even change out of your yoga pants. It’s all happening right here online September 14th – 18th. And it’s going to be nothing short of amazing! And it’s free! Get Organized HQ (click on the image below) to learn all about it and save your seat!

  4. Paper Pile Control: I’ll talk about my progress in keeping my paper piles under control, for this is a never-ending project, but isn’t it for all of us? I will share what’s worked for me:)

Getting organized has changed my life in every way. If you feel it’s impossible, that you’re a hopeless case, or why even try, because your situation is so bad, let me encourage you that you can do it! You’ve heard, perhaps, the question: “How do you eat an elephant?” Answer: “One bite at a time!” 

If an organized life seems like eating an elephant, just take one bite at a time! I’ll help you with tips and encouragement. When you get one area of your life under control, there is a ripple effect! The discipline and order you bring to a physical area of your home or life, affects your mind and spirit, and the discipline  you bring to your spiritual life affects all the other areas. And it is exponentially impactful! As in everything, ask the LORD to help you! God is a god of order, remember.

Why Should I Even Try to Get This Mess Organized?

Would you like to be a different person next year?

Would you like to be a different person in a year? You can be! Do you want to have a home in order, and organized systems in place? You can! 

Let’s begin! You have control and choices! Isn’t that encouraging? In this time when everything feels out of control, there are areas of your life that you can “control” and bring order to that will make an eternal impact on your life and your family.

“You Do have choices, and can do it! Get an organized life that will make an eternal impact on you, your family, and everyone around you–maybe even the world!” Wendy Gunn 2020

Organization is a huge topic but let’s begin!

Organization is a huge topic, so this theme will grow, and expand, and I’ll post on it monthly! I’m getting organized on this blog, too, and now have a plan to implement! Yay! Having a plan in anything you endeavor is a great boost to your success! The plan for my blog will help you know what topics to expect to find here and when.

An organized life will save you time and money

Want more to read on organizing, saving money, and Home and Time Management/Organization? Read these posts (and there’s more–check them out!):

This won’t be a comprehensive look at the subject, but the nuts and bolts, with helpful tips that you can implement. These topics are huge and I don’t think we know or realize that we probably will be learning about how to organize our life all of our lives. 

This is because there are always changes! Who could have anticipated the changes we’ve experienced this past year, 2020? You may be experiencing so many changes in your home and routine that you’ve had to reorganize systems that were working perfectly fine! That’s how life is. 

Perhaps the greatest benefit of an organized life is peace of mind. And, then there’s less stress, less hectic and pressured work, and the ability to enjoy life and the people around you. Oh, and you have the joy of reflecting God, for God is a god of order.

An organized life requires work, but is worth it

Our lives change and as they do, our family’s lifestyle changes and our needs change. There are phases and stages. As our children grow, so we need more and different kinds of space for clothing, shoes, and other items. Their ability to take on jobs around the house affects the systems we put in place to keep our home running. 

Where we live may change, and what we have in our home based on the size of our home may change. Our physical abilities change as we age, and what we once could do now seems difficult, so we adapt. Even how much paper comes into our home changes, as we make choices about finances, schooling, etc.

It's Way Too Much Work to Get Organized! (Isn't It?)

It’s way too much work to get organized! (isn’t it?)

You’re not a horrible person because your systems fall apart, and you have to figure out how to do things all over again. This is normal. We have to flex, change, adjust, pray over it all, and test the new systems, tweaking them to make them fit. If you have a very fluid life, with constant change, or frequent moves, you will have to get used to making frequent changes to  your systems, and constantly finding new ways of doing things.

An organized life requires prayer, work, and patience, but it’s oh, so worth it!

I hope to teach you ways to think about your home and family that will help you establish systems that work now, but also to be able to adapt those systems to the inevitable changes you will experience. For this is life!

You may not like the topic of organization, or perhaps you’re so overwhelmed, you don’t know where to begin. I want to encourage you, first, with these 10 Wonderful Benefits of Your Organized Life! (And there are many more:)

10 wonderful benefits of your organized life

  • Peace of mind (the peace a well-running home and life gives is unbelievable).
  • Less stress and pressure, more time, and the ability to enjoy your home, family and life!
  • It saves time (for instance, not wasting time looking for things).
  • It saves money, because you know what you have and where it is and you don’t end up replacing something you already have, but couldn’t find!
  • You have a good testimony and a good name (“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches” Proverbs 22:1), and represent God well, because “God is a god of order” and you may be praised by family and friends (that was really 3 benefits!)
  • You are able to train your children well in organization, because much of training is caught, rather than taught and they’ll grow up to be organized in their homes, from watching you and living in an organized home.
  • You will be able to have others do work in your home, accept help offered (for instance, when you have a baby or are sick), have your children do jobs easily in the home, because systems are in place for what to do and how to do them!
  • You will be ready for unexpected events and  company who show up at your door unannounced; you can be flexible to say yes to the fun, spontaneous activities and invitations that come up  (for instance, when your husband wants to go somewhere on a day you’d planned for other things, you can say yes, because you have a plan and your home is generally in order all the time!)
  • You will be able to focus on setting goals you know you will accomplish (because organization breeds confidence, and your mind will be freed to focus on other things, like your big dreams! Disorganization is frustrating, overwhelming, and keeps you from accomplishing your goals.)
  • You will be able to think long term, and become disciplined to set goals you accomplish in other areas: e.g. the discipline you learn to organize your home and life will transfer over to weight loss, organizing your photos, making those photo books you’ve always wanted, planning trips, and having the money to take them, getting out of debt, perhaps starting a ministry, or starting a blog, or some other service, and many other long term goals!

So you see that there are many benefits of an organized life, and it is a worthy goal! AND, you CAN DO IT!

In the next post we’ll talk about where to start, and how to eliminate that feeling of being too overwhelmed to even begin.
