Question - What is the difference between "organizing" and "cleaning up?"
Answer - In a nutshell, organizing involves sorting, arranging, and making decisions about what to keep and what to give / throw away, and cleaning up involves water, and possibly dusting.
When you start your organizing project, the first step is to sort things into categories. In you home, the most obvious category would be, "in what room or area will I use this?"
First, put things into the correct areas, then arrange each area.
Don't try to arrange and sort at the same time.
