amazing organizing quotes


I listened to a podcast with David Goggins where he said something that really resonated with me.  He said once you leave your house, the war starts.  You need to build your amour every morning.

It’s really true, the world isn’t going to be on your side and you have to be strong.  Starting the morning off with the right mindset builds your amour and changes everything.

Organizing isn’t something that is fun for many people, they find it to be an annoying task.  This list of organizing quotes will help you change your mindset and inspire you to get organized.

If you love quotes, you are likely a motivated person and someone who is always striving to be better.  Words have a powerful impact on all of us.  Whether it’s a conversation with a spouse, reading a book, or listening to a podcast, you are reading or listening to words.  They either help us improve or move us in a different direction.


  1. If you’ve had something for 6 months and it’s still not repaired, it’s clutter. – Gretchen Rubin

    • There’s so much truth to this quote.  If you haven’t fixed it by now, it’s not going to happen.  Get rid of it.
  2. Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful. – William Morris

    • We spend a lot of time in our homes.  They should bring us joy, not stress.  Keep what makes you happy.
  3. With organization comes empowerment. – Lynda Peterson

    • Think of the last time you organized something and how you felt afterward, you were unstoppable.  When we are organized we feel good about ourselves and put forth our best selves.
  4. It’s not a good deal if you don’t need it. – Unknown

    • This is true on so many levels.  As someone who loves a good bargain, not buying it is hard because it makes me feel like I’m winning.  The truth is though when you get home and don’t have anywhere to put it, it just becomes clutter.
  5. Clean and organizing are a practice, not a project. -Meagan Francis

    • Every organized space started as a project.  Keeping it that way becomes a practice.  It’s a lifestyle.
  6. Nobody ever said “I regret organizing my house. – Alejandra

    • True story.  I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t feel better after they’ve organized.  It’s a rewarding feeling and stress is out the door.
  7. Stop waiting for the perfect time to get organized. Take this moment and make some progress. – Heidi Leonard

    • Perfection is overrated, progress is what matters.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
  8. If you want to improve your life immediately, clean out a closet.  Often what we hold onto holds us back. –  Cheryl Richardson

    • Letting go is hard.  Freedom comes when we get rid of things that no longer serve us.
  9. The secret of getting ahead is getting started. – Mark Twain
    • Starting is often the hardest part.  When you start, you’ve already made progress.
  10. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. – James Clear

    • With good organizing systems in place, you’re more likely to stay organized.


For years, I’ve heard from successful people about journaling and how it’s helped them.  As someone who is always trying to be better, I never got it until I read The Miracle Morning.  This book was a game changer.  It gave me direction on how to live and have a better morning.  It finally helped me understood the importance of journaling.  I ended up using The Miracle Morning Journal for an entire year.

If you’ve never journaled before, opt for a physical journal. The tangible presence of a journal can help establish a habit, and habits are crucial for success. Deleting a reminder on your smartphone is much easier than neglecting a physical journal.

Choose a pen that you genuinely love—love it so much that the idea of losing it is unsettling. While this may seem extreme, your enjoyment of journaling can be influenced by the pen you use. Stick to the same pen every time, and consider buying multiples of the same pen in the same color for writing fluidity.

Alongside using a beloved pen, employ highlighters to mark your favorite text. When you revisit your journal, these highlights make it easier to recognize significant passages. I’ve been using G-2 Pilot pens for about a year and have become enamored with them.

For highlighters, I’ve stuck with Sharpie for years, going back to my junior high days. There were times I strayed from Sharpie due to budget constraints, but I regretted it every time, so I consistently stick with Sharpie now.


Words are powerful and inspirational, they have meaning and bring out the best version of ourselves.  These amazing organizing quotes do exactly that.  When we put forth our best, we make the world a better place.
