My Short List of Organizing Tips

1.  Keep it Simple!

Do you find that everyone in your house misses the laundry basket, or that there is always a smattering of clothes on top or around the laundry basket but not actually in the laundry basket?  Its the same at my house.  My suggestion for this is very simple.  Take the lid off!  Place it in a spot that you can throw your clothes into it from across the room.  Give it a try, the result might surprise you!

2.  Purge, Purge, Purge

Most often I find that when asked to help someone organize the first thing they want to do is shop for storage containers.  This is the last thing you need.  The reason you have a problem with organization is because you have to much STUFF!  You have to let some of it go!

3  Put it Away!

Why wait?  Put it away now instead of later.  The longer you wait the more bothersome the task.  This is also a good habit to get the kids and husband on board with!  This is a hard one, because its not just about organizing but about changing habits as well.  Give it a try, I am sure that you will be happy with the results.

4. Put a Label on It!

Organizing is about creating systems that cater to your everyday needs.  I find that it helps to use visuals.  Label everything.  This way there is no confusion on where something goes or no panic when you are looking for something.  I LOVE my label maker!

I hope that you find some of these helpful.  I know that many people find organizing overwhelming even stressful.  My goal is to show that it doesn't have to be, in some cases it can even be fun!

  1. If you could come and drill the "Put it away!" message into my husband's head, I would really, really appreciate it. :)

    1. I would be more than happy to! I do have to confess though, my house isn't always 100% because well I'm not the only one that lives there ;)
