Dos & Don’ts

  • Don’t neglect this reward. It will help reinforce the cool organizing behaviors that are becoming a habit for you.
  • Do enjoy the feeling of achievement – no matter how imperfect you’ve been. Progress is more achievable and more important than perfection.

Extended Organizing Mission Options

Want to go beyond this 30-minute organizing mission?
