What were your most fundamental changes?
For organizing-- time, stuff, life--there may be minor changes or ones that make a more fundamental shift in how we live. "Size" is not the issue, but impact. Sort of the difference between churning or really fixing a system. I think a lot of fundamental organizing changes require a real habit or discipline but some could be simply tossing some kind of dead weight. I also think most involve getting rid of something ( not necessarily a tangible) but some could involve adding something. Most probably involve simplifying but maybe not.
I'm trying out giving up, or nearly so, magazine subscriptions; all have lapsed currently. And maybe not buying any off the stand either. I can trace issues of time and space and clutter and churning to reading, piling , sorting, ripping, filing; not to mention a brain burden of ideas for more and better stuff , desire to change or rearrange existing stuff , more recipes to try. Immight be able to create a habit of enjoying the magazine and tossing but that has escaped me so far.
Anyway, that's not earth-shaking but it's different from a goal of having a
better filing system.
Like downsizing to a smaller home or no yard might be more fundamental than having a better system for garden tools. Or having just one purse more so than having a purse organizer system and inner purse.
But what might be some things that made the most difference in your organizing and quality of life? I don't intend to get too off track, but I guess it could even be exercise , or religion , leads to more organization in ways that can't be achieved by a better shelf organizer!
