NEW YEARS ORGINAZATION
I LOVE ME SOME ORGINAZATION!
Sometimes I think I could go into business helping
organize people. I love my little consignment shoppe
called FANCY FINDINGS and when I go there I see
so much I could do to organize and increase their sales.
They laugh when I tell them this and say,
On the first of the year I run into this article
RULES OF BALANCED ORGANIZING
some I could have written myself, others
give me good ideas…
1) ONE IN, ONE OUT:
WHENEVER SOMETHING ENTERS YOUR HOME,
GIVE ANOTHER ITEM A BOOT.
HOBL has that down packed. If he buys
a new shirt, one is going out.
2) THOUGH SHALT NOT TRANSFER CLUTTER
Don't bury the den to save the dining room.
I hate clutter. I will clean a drawer, straighten
up constantly to keep clutter gone.
3) DOUBLES ARE TROUBLES
You don't need two can openers or 5 pairs
of tweezers. Toss duplicates.
I can check this off my list, unless
it's one for upstairs, one for downstairs,
no duplicates allowed.
4) KEEP IT WHERE YOU USE IT
Stash the toner with the printer, etc.
Another check off my list, done.
5) HAVE A PLACE FOR NOTHING
Create one empty cabinet, shelf or drawer
in each room. it's backup for when the balance tips.
Going to do this as I have the space but I
don't think it will be needed. Instead,
want to make a cabinet to put gifts I buy
on sale for those unexpected parties, etc.
I have a wrapping station in my laundry room for
all my wrapping papers, tape, ribbons, cards,
it is one of the spaces I am most proud of
so going to put that gift cabinet in there somewhere.
6) A TO Z.
FIX ONE SPOT START TO- FINISH RATHER
THAN JUMPING AROUND FROM MESS
Hoping these help you in the new year for
organizing. The only room that is never
always organized is my scrap room as it should
be. Creation is being made there. If it is clean,
then I am not creating and that is not good.
