Getting a Professional Organization Certificate was the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
- It makes me give you a very specific way to fast track your progress and make decisions.

Disasters & Conditions: Important Home Organization Principles
First, you need to understand what disasters and conditions mean and why they are important principles in organizing a family.
Calamity & Condition, What’s In This Way?
In the case of organizations, disaster is the worst kind of misery, failure, and dire outcome you get when any part of your home spirals out of control.
Condition is the current status of the organization in that particular sector.
Give you an example;
Imagine that your last 6 months bills are piled up and buried somewhere in your home office. Now you don’t know where anything is, do you? Many of us are old schoolers, like me, who need to see the bill to pay it off.
Thus, a disastrous outcome could be you miss your car insurance payment or yes your water is off. It happened to me when I was not so organized, and I can say that quick disorganization can create a disaster.
Being able to assess the importance and relevance of organizational tasks is one of the key organizational principles.
Think about this:
What if the most important area is not organized?
It will help you decide what to do first, second, third, etc.
I would say start your indoor area with the worst and worst disaster that can happen.
And here’s the thing:
You are the only one who knows where to start before living in your own home and understands your needs and priorities. I can only give you tools and a lot of value, but you are the one who has to put in the effort.
Last year, my pantry, kitchen, and entryway topped the list.
That pantry alone saved me a lot of precious time before going grocery shopping.
How to implement home organization principles and disaster conditions
You will use the disaster printout (register below) to decide which areas you need to get to first. Ask yourself these three questions:
- Think how important the space/room is and whether it is in the worst condition
- Will it affect your daily life if it is not arranged in advance?
- Does it have to be organized in advance, or can it wait?
After you get your answer in “Yeses”, then fill out the disaster form and if your answer is “P”, that’s the room you’ll work in regardless of where it’s located. any in your room.
For me, it’s my entry cabinet with the kids’ schoolbags.
I assure you that use these organizing principles. You will not have any difficulty in choosing a venue for the event.
When you organize your house in the traditional method, you just organize it in a free way while the scientific or non-traditional method of organizing is where you understand the science and the principles of organization to implemented in their organizational projects.
So don’t delay! Just download the form and start it.
You can List 5 areas in your Disaster form and complete them one by one! Good luck!
