To make your organizing project work faster and better, get the tools and systems to finish the job before you dig in.
Systems are bookshelves, file cabinets, or any “container” that holds stuff in an organized manner, for daily use or storage.
Here’s an example from one of my organizing client’s:
I did a 4-hour organizing job at a client’s home yesterday. She showed me her piano room with a lump of music books and other music items pushed up against the wall, items that had outgrown the piano bench. I suggested she get a simple two to three shelf bookcase (a system) and all the mess would have a “home” in which to “live” (organizing lingo!) keeping them nice and neat and off the floor.
A simple answer to a chaotic mess equals no more stress!
What “projects” are you going to dig into and re-organize this week?
Choose just one and complete it. Doesn’t it feel great when you’re done?
Use systems to hold your items so that you can get to them easily and effortlessly.
