Make sure you also give yourself time to rest and to take a break, you don’t want to tire yourself more than you can take.

You probably even have some stuff that you don’t need or you don’t even use but you just don’t know how to throw it away. Make up your mind before starting and push yourself to really get rid of what you don’t need.
Make three piles, one of the stuff you want to keep, one of the things you aren’t sure about, and another of trash. After sorting these things in these piles, go back to the one you weren’t sure about, and then start over and from that pile, pick what you will throw and what you are willing to keep.
3. Use Labels
Part of organizing things means knowing where things will be after. Labeling boxes or drawers are perfect for you to find things afterward. Make sure when you reorganize your label where things are and since then you will find it super easy to find items around your house.
