Organization Guru: The Toxic Habit You Should Break in 2013


The New Year is here, and it's a time to leave all toxic habits behind us and start with a clean slate. Speaking of clean, decluttering is one of the most common resolutions that people have, but when old habits start settling in again, clutter can build back up. We talked to organization expert Peter Walsh to find out what's coming in between you and a clean room in the New Year:

"I always say that 'later' is the best friend of clutter and disorganization. Whenever you're tempted to just throw the dirty dishes in the sink or leave the clothes in the dryer unfolded, catch yourself. Realize that it's the small steps that need to be done to stay on top of the clutter. My one bit of advice on the subject would be to replace the word 'later' with the word 'now.' Get into the habit of repeating that word under your breath, and pretty soon you’ll have a ton of accomplishments you can be proud of."
