- Someday Lesson: If your physical space is chaotic, how can you possible expect to find the clear path through to your dreams?
As we come to the end of Self-Improvement month, I have a question for you.
How’s your physical clutter?
Normally on Someday Syndrome we deal with emotional and mental clutter, but occasionally I like to take a look at the physical blocks to our dreams. And taking that literally I want to know: how’s your bedroom?
Can you see the floor? Do your clothes pile up on chairs and in baskets but never seem to make it into closets and drawers? Do you have clothes you’ve bought but have yet to wear?
What about non-bedroom stuff – books, toys, newspapers, stuff for work?
Our inner and outer worlds are highly linked. If you have a disorderly and chaotic bedroom, how can you expect to have a calm sleep? And if you can’t have that calm sleep your emotional and mental clutter will build and build until you’re just getting by each day.
We store our dreams in our bedrooms. Think about that moment just before you fall asleep or just before you wake up each day, when everything is full of possibility. Are you stressed or do you greet sleep and waking with enthusiasm? If you go to bed and wake up stressed, there’s a good chance that stress has a physical cause.
Fortunately it’s an easy and inexpensive fix!
Last year, I had the privilege of writing the scripts for a series of organizing videos and worksheets put together by Kim Eagles and Elaine Shannon of The Organizing Connection and this month they’ve just released Organizing The Bedroom: From Cluttered Nightmares to Sweet Dreams.
If you know deep in your heart that this is the day to take back control of your home, become more organized, and live the life of your choice and not one where you just ‘survive’ each day, then you’re going to want the CLUTTER CODE Six Step Organizing System™ available exclusively from Organizing Connection. To get you started the #1 Secret to Organizing your Closet will be revealed, a secret that will change how you think about your closet.
Usually I don’t recommend people looking to get organized to go buy organizing tools like books because they often just become clutter themselves. However, this tool by the incredibly dynamic dual includes a funny and information-packed video that includes – yes seriously – the Closet Hokey Pokey! So you don’t just read about organizing – you get to see it happen and get the tools to do so step by step.
In the From Cluttered Nightmares to Sweet Dreams video you will learn:
- How the #1 Secret to organizing your closet can help with the whole room.
- How you can break this mountain of a job into bite sized pieces.
- How to do the aforementioned Closet Hokey Pokey, a fun way to remember how to maintain the closet organization.
- Some end of the day strategies that will save valuable time in the morning.
- The emotional side of organizing, including how to let go – using hangers!
Plus you will receive the special companion ebook to help give you more concrete steps to conquering the bedroom and closet clutter! In this ebook you will learn more about…
- Paying it forward: how the clutter in your closets could be someone’s survival
- Organizing through transitions: what do you do when a new baby arrives or the season changes.
- Feng Shui and why the bed placement is so important
And to keep you on track, there are 11 pages of worksheets that can guide you every step of the way. Once you see how far you’ve progressed from having a bedroom that resembles the floor after a department store sale to one that is totally organized, completely functional AND a joy to be in, you’ll want to keep this room from ever lapsing into chaotic clutterland again
All for only $29.99 USD. That’s like a fraction of the hourly cost of having an organizer on site with you – and you get to watch it over and over until the principles explained in the video become second nature for you.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the bonuses that you get with the video and worksheets, including something from Someday Syndrome (your own personal Dream Factory).
So, what are you waiting for? Go visit Organizing Connection and start freeing up the space to dream and dream big!

P.P.S. Speaking of following dreams, I recently had a short story published on the website Aurora Wolf. The story is called A Home Invasion and is a humorous look at what happens when a collective of pixies decide they want to help.
