How to Get Organized

Here are four key strategies to organizing:

  • Find a home: Everything has to “live” somewhere in a designated area, and store similar items together, creating mini collections.
  • Rule of thumb: if you can’t find an obvious place for it, pitch it or give it away
  • Prioritize: Reserve crucial, easy-to-reach storage for the things you use most often. The things you rarely use but might need go out of sight.
  • Streamline: Use baskets inside drawers and on shelves for craft supplies and snack storage. Throwing away the original box saves so much space!
