TIP WEDNESDAY
Tip #7 Stay Organized

 

tip
My Key Holder, which helps keep some of my frequently used items in order

 Though it seems to be a common sense tip, it really is more a matter of purposely training yourself to stay organized. If you have a creative type of personality, it’s easy to leave valuable objects around the house.

I have spent many wasted hours looking for something I had no idea where I last put.Friends and Family have used expressions like “Everything has a home. If you take it to its home, it will always be there,” and “Put it back where you got it, for Pete’s sake!” I’ve misplaced everything from cash to paperwork to jewelry. My sister worked hard with me to adhere to this ONE TIP so that my life would go more smoothly. 

Even now I can be looking right at something and not see it. But this tip cuts down on the frustration.

    I’m OCD, yet totally disorganized! Seems to be a contradiction, but it is what it is!

    Hi Carrie,
    Haha! I’ve really struggled with this! Today it was the electricity bill. I had looked in one area over all my papers and we finally had to run our errands without it. When I returned, there it was on top! But at least it was in the “paper” area. 🙂

    I’ve tried to be organized and do the ‘everything has a home’ thing. The only problem is everything’s home usually ends up being the kitchen table or the stand in the hallway. 🙂

    I must be the creative type! I’m totally disorganized, especially paper clutter. I do have a place for keys though. I decided not to try so hard to be organized. It seems counter productive. My dining table is a catch all most of the time. I’m happy if I can keep the floors reasonably clean of dog hair.

    PS. I will try to download your book.

    I have special places for specific items. Hooks for keys. A basket on the wall for bits & bobs that you generally grab as you walk out the door, etc. Somehow, my husband always seems to miss the memo.

    hi Lily,
    Well the good news is that you know where your keys are if you have to hop in the car quickly!
    Have a great day!

    If anything, I am overly organized. BUT, that is a good thing. Always on top of things, don’t lose anything and it saves so much time. Your post is much needed for so many people who struggle with this problem – glad I started young LOL
