Organizing doesn't have to be costly or time consuming. I spent very little time doing this (1/2 hour?) and only a few dollars. And the results are awesome. Why?
- Because I decluttered;
- because there is now a place for the things I kept;
- because now I can find things;
- because now the other people in my house can also find these things.
Next, I group. First to go are items that don't belong: This includes, surprisingly, trash. Surprising to me since I am a declutterer, but yet there is always things in the junk drawer that are trash.
|After....before we could barely close it....|
How much better is this? Organized, labeled and out of the way, and in inexpensive containers from the grocery store. Like I said, if it's out of sight, it doesn't have to be beautiful. Just organized.
The puppy and kitties even have their own stash!
So get organizing! It doesn't have to be costly or timely! But the cost and time saved in looking for lost items will be priceless!
Remember: Purge. Group. Contain. And always rethink your systems! If something is not working, there is a better way!
