Get Organized Day

Our lives can become quite messy as we go about them. After all, we all have work and family to deal with on a daily basis, so organization often gets pushed further down the list. However, that doesn’t mean that organization isn’t important. Quite the contrary.

Organization is extremely important, and study after study has shown that an organized space leads to better mental clarity. Clutter can not only reflect a person’s state of mind but can actually contribute to it.

That’s why it’s important for us to get organized as soon as we can. A holiday that reminds us of the importance of organization and encourages us to work towards it is Get Organized Day. This holiday is observed every April 26th and is the perfect excuse for everyone to work towards a more ordered life.

The History of Get Organized Day

You would think that if a person was concerned enough with organization to actually create a holiday dedicated to it, then they would have written down somewhere on the Internet that they had created it.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, and whoever invented Get Organized Day has chosen to remain anonymous. From our point of view, this is quite unfortunate. That’s because we love to tell people about the origins of the holidays we review, so when we can’t find a holiday’s origins, it sort of leaves us disorganized.

Alas, that is exactly where we stand today. We simply don’t know who invented this holiday or when it was invented, but we’ll continue looking. Maybe someday we’ll find the answer.

Observing Get Organized Day

All that this day requires is for people to take the organization of their home, office, or school locker seriously. This means throwing out all the trash and pulling the space together in a way that makes some sort of organizational sense.

This can be done by adding shelves, shoe holders, or other things that can organize and store the objects that are used on a daily basis. While people are decluttering their lives, they can spread the word about this holiday to other people by using the hashtag #GetOrganizedDay online.
