Benefits of Getting Organized: Having a Presentable Space to Share With Friends

Does this sound like you?:

You’ve made it to the end of a long work week and you’d like to have a relaxing evening with some friends at your home.  The problem: inviting guests over would require significant prep work as there is nowhere to sit in the living room.  The weeks mail has been piled on the kitchen table and clothing is everywhere but in the hamper.  Your home is hardly a place you want to bring people to entertain.  So much for spending time with friends.

Does this sound like you?:

You’ve been on a few dates with a guy you really like and when dropping you off at home one night he says, “may I come in for a cup of coffee?”  Your heart jumps a few beats while you attempt to collect your words.  Your mind immediately goes to the fact that your home is scattered with paperwork, dirty dishes and the shoes on the floor are definite tripping hazard.  You think, if he saw your place there would be no hope for another date.  Instead of enjoying his company in your home, you make up some lame excuse about how you have to get to bed early and call it a night.  Now you end your evening with anger and frustration rather than butterflies and rainbows.

Does this sound like you?:

You’re at the park with your children socializing with some other moms while the children play happily.  Suddenly heavy rain starts and everyone is scrambling to get under cover.  As everyone walked to the park, no cars are available for cover.  Then another mother says, “you live accross the street-can we go to your house until the storm passes?”  You panic thinking, the house is covered with toys, laundry and you didn’t pick up the breakfast dishes (or the dinner dishes from last night…) and your home is hardly a place you want these moms to see.  You think, they would never let your kids play with theirs again!

This could be you!:

You are organized and have developed daily systems to deal with clutter. Presenting your home to others easy.  Inviting people over on a whim is stress-free.  Your home is a reflection of you, displaying photos of family and artwork done by the kids.  Sharing your home with others gives the opportunity to display this part of your life that cannot be seen elsewhere.  You take pride in your space.
