Do you have the best of intentions to get organized and have a general system in place, but your home is still bulging at the seams? Then you might have what professional organizer Melissa Picheny calls an optimist organization personality. Chances are your existing system is failing due to lack of time management. Scheduling organizing time on your calendar is a must-do to keep up with your household. It's also the easiest task to push back when anything else feels more important. To avoid this pitfall, schedule a weekly date with yourself and commit to it -- no excuses. Use this time to pay and file bills or declutter a trouble spot in your home.
