Excuse vs. Truth
Excuse: “I need more space and bigger closets before I can get organized.”
Truth: By organizing your existing space, you automatically gain the extra room you need. It’s not how much space you have, but how you use it.
Excuse: “I just did my spring cleaning, so I don’t need to get organized right now.”
Truth: Organizing is not the same as spring cleaning or straitening up. If you organize properly, it’s a one-time activity. Organizing systems are fairly maintenance-free when you use them as part of your daily routine.
Excuse: “I guess I just have too many clothes because I can never find what outfit I need. It’s always buried, and when I do find it I spend a long time ironing because it’s wrinkled.”
Truth: You may have too many clothes and need to purge, but when your clothes are hung systematically, you will be able to find what you need. Also, they won’t be crammed in, so no more unnecessary ironing. You save time and money when your closets are organized.
Excuse: “I really want to get my closets organized, but I don’t think I can after 10 years of living in the same house.”
Truth: The longer you wait, the worse it will get. With one step at a time, all things are possible. Start with one closet, then reward yourself and do another one!
Excuse: “You’re going to make me get rid of things I am not ready to part with.”
Truth: Suggestions will be made, but the final decision is yours. You will still live there and deal with your wardrobe after the session is complete.
