Getting Organized in 2012!

Is getting organized one of your 2012 resolutions?  If so, why not start at home?   Even clearing out a single drawer or shelf can make life a little easier.

Some tricks:

1) Throw away anything you have not used in the past year, unless it has sentimental value.

2) Identify the items you use most and make them easiest to access.

3) Leave some space on shelves.  Some openness is calming.

4) Figure out what types and sizes of containers might help and then go buy them.  Don’t buy the containers first and try to make them work.

5) If you’re up for a major reorganization, the Container Store is currently having their annual Elfa sale – a great and flexible closet system.
