Brilliant organising quotes that will help you get sorted out

These quotes can help put perspective on things when it comes to getting organised (whatever home or life project you’re currently tackling).

So – let’s get straight to the quotes, shall we!

ORGANISING quotes YOU’LL LOVE!

Quote - being organised is...

Being organized isn’t about getting rid of everything you own or trying to become a different person. It’s about living the way you want to live – but better…

ANDREW MELLEN

I think this is my favourite, because it makes you think about a totally different perspective on getting organised.

All too often we get stuck on the fact that being organised means being perfect about everything – and it’s just not true!

Being organised is actually much more about just making your life simpler and decluttering – and I think that’s much more achievable and less stressful, don’t you?!

Simple Life Quote

Simplicity boils down to two things: Identify the essential, and eliminate the rest

LEO BABAUTA

This quote is a similar message to the first two parts of my ADORE Method – Assessing what’s going well and what isn’t, and Decluttering anything that gets in the way of that.

QUOTE - organise your life around your dreams and watch them come true

Organise your life around your dreams and watch them come true

UNKNOWN

This is a great quote, and a brilliant mindset shift! – if you’re just intent on getting organised with no goals in mind – then you won’t ever feel like you’ve achieved anything.

Instead, you want to plan what you want, and then aim for that. This will stop you feeling dissatisfied with your progress.

Deciding what Not to do is as important as deciding what TO do

ORGANISING QUOTE - There's nothing more calm than an organised home

There is nothing more calming than an organised home

UNKNOWN
Organising Quote - organizing is what you do...

Organising is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up

A. A. MILNE
Home Quote - Calm House, Calm Life

Calm house, calm life

UNKNOWN
Quote - Fail to plan, plan to fail

Fail to plan, plan to fail

WINSTON CHURCHILL
Organising Quote - The difference between organised and disorganised

Often the difference between organised and dis-organised is the little habits we do each day without really thinking

CHRISSY HALTON

One of my organising quotes! – (I couldn’t resist!) – and I wanted to add it into the mix because habits really do make all the difference.

Once you add little habits to your daily routines, then staying organised will feel much easier…

Quote - organising is a journey, not a destination

Organising is a journey, not a destination

UNKNOWN

Another key thing to remember about getting organised is you don’t just ‘get organised’ and that’s that.

Far from it – it’s an ongoing process.

Kind of like cleaning your house. You may do a massive clean, but you know it will need doing again before long.

The difference though is that while cleaning sort of starts from scratch each time – organising gets easier and easier the more you do it.

Setting up the right systems that make your life easier means that staying organised means it’s only tweaking that’s needed as and when life changes happen – and then you’re set!

So – don’t treat it like a proverbial crash diet and go back to the burgers when you’ve reached your goal – otherwise you’ll end up back where you started and it will all have been for nothing.

Slow and steady progress, ongoing, is what’s needed!

Quote - organised people are lazy

Organized people are just too lazy to go looking for what they want

ALVERT EINSTEIN

Hands up if you’re lazy, and proud of it…. I know I am!

Quote - A place for everything

A place for everything, and everything in its place

MRS BEETON
Organising Quote - Life truly begins when you put your house in order

Life truly begins when you put your house in order

MARIE KONDO

I totally agree with this Marie Kondo quote, because when you’re home is organised, it supports your life and living it becomes much less stress.

Quote - Mess equals unclean to the subconscious mind

Mess equals unclean to the subconscious mind

CHRISSY HALTON
Quote - Alongside Great Systems and Routines...

Alongside great systems and routines, habits are key to becoming, and staying, organised

CHRISSY HALTON
WHerever my keys are - I hope they're happy

Wherever my keys are….

I hope they’re happy

I couldn’t resist putting in a funny as well! – Love this, as it’s so true…
