Getting “organized” has so many different meanings for everyone. For me, it’s generally a catch-all phrase for getting my entire life together, which really isn’t a realistic goal for a Saturday afternoon. After getting discouraged for (literally) years and then living with my jumble of everything from shoes to home office accoutrements, I decided that all of the 10-point tip articles were kind of right. Start small and label — so easy, yet so hard to actually get started and keep in the habit of doing.
I decided that I was going to do some digging in our archives for some inspiration and actually attempt to tackle a few key problem areas in my home. Note I said home, not life. The life organization will come in time, but it needs the seeds of environmental changes and habits. Click through my slideshow to see some of my motivation, and if you’re looking to find some peace in your own closet or office, I’m hoping these tools will help you, too!
And one final note — I know some of you out there have this organization thing down. Would you PLEASE SHARE your tips and/or what keeps you motivated to keep up with good organization habits? Your methods might just be my saving grace! —Caitlin
P.S. Be sure to get to the last slide to download Lisa Congdon’s labels! I’ll be using them this weekend for some summer clothes going into storage.
