8 Habits of Organized People to Apply to Your Life


We all know and are probably pretty jealous of that super organized person in our life. They have every container labeled and everything in its place. That level of organization might sound intimidating to you, but trust us, it’s not scary!

You don’t have to be a natural at organizing to be an organized person. Just use these 8 common habits of organized people to help transform your life!

They are goal-oriented

Organized people don’t just love order; they are always reasons behind their set goals. These goals can vary according to their personality, family or even time of the year, but the organized person continues to work towards them.

They are optimistic

Having that organized mindset leads to a more positive or “glass half full” outlook on life. Keeping up with housekeeping tasks each day and not coming home to a giant pile of clutter every night is a good way to put a smile on anyone’s face.

They are decision makers

Organized folks can say a yes or no clearly, while others might waffle back and forth with a decision. For example, when going through a closet, they really think about what can be donated and what garments they actually use routinely. This ability to make quick decisions makes it easier to prioritize things, so closets aren’t busting at the seams. 

They aren’t perfectionists

Just because you like organization, doesn’t necessarily mean you are a perfectionist. Organized people understand that life gets in the way of having a perfect home, yard or shed. Spending time organizing things makes it easier to keep up with, but it shouldn’t get in the way of a fun family night out or an important work obligation.

They keep lists

A big way to model that super organized person in your life is by making lists. Putting things on your to-do list, grocery list, etc. lets you use your metal energy on other things. One good idea is to make short daily lists and a longer ongoing to-do list that covers the week or month.

They have a do-it-now attitude

Many of us can relate to the mindset of “I’ll do it later.” But if you keep pushing those important maintenance or organization items off, the amount of work you have to do will continue to grow. For example, every night hang your coat or hat up immediately on the rack, rather than throwing it somewhere else.

They are prepared

If they have a day of cleaning scheduled for this weekend, the organized person will make sure enough time has been blocked off, the cleaning supplies are stocked up and they have a to-do list for each room. Advanced preparation makes crossing things off your list much easier.

They know when they work best

There is no common denominator when it comes to organized people, some are morning people and others are night owls. But the one thing they have in common is understanding what time of day they do their best work. Save the most challenging work for those high energy times and take it easy during that sleepy slump.

They de-stress

Organized people understand the importance of staying away from unnecessary stress. This could come in the form of a monthly spa day with friends, a game night with family, regular exercise or by adding additional space to organize at your home with a Cook Portable Warehouse.
