Vision with a mission
Before you dive into organizing a space, take a step back and envision how you want the area to look and feel. Keep that end result in mind as you go through the rest of the organizing process—take everything out, sort and purge, etc.—and only put back items that match your vision.

Maybe even sketch something out, or write down the goals! Like, do you want to get rid of things, or just organize the stuff already there. And plan out specific time slots to work on it.
