Organize Your Life in Style

Organize in Style

I love all things organization!  I am always obsessed with finding the “perfect” day planner and just the right pencil cup for my desk.  Most people struggle with organizing their homes, schedules, and lives and are always looking for help.  While there are countless articles and books to read, products to buy, and professionals to hire (like myself).  The number one most important thing I have learned by organizing for myself and others is that you must have systems that work for you and that you like!!  If you have baskets set up and labeled in your linen closet but you don’t love how they look you will not try to use them and keep things put away.  If all of your makeup is beautifully organized in drawers with a great system you will never put it back if it is not convenient with your routine.

When trying to get organized you must at least like the system you are trying to use.  That being said I can’t stress enough that you absolutely do NOT have to spend a lot of money to achieve this.  Check out sites like Pinterest, Craftgawker, or any of the amazing blogs out there and you will find lots of inspiration for organizing on the cheap (this is how I do it in my own house).  So here are some home organization products or DIYs that I think you will love:

Home Management Filing System: I love, love, love this system for organizing paper clutter!  Clean up the kitchen counter or table, and get a handle on mail, bills, etc…  With her system you will never pay a bill late again!

 

How to Organize a Small Home Office: I can truly appreciate this post!  My office is a very weird “extra” room in my house that also serves as my closet, dressing room, craft room, extra storage, etc…

Organizing Made Easy: Great roundup of tips from all over the Web.  I love this list because it shares tips for organizing all of those little things you can’t seem to find a home for!

Hopefully in these posts with hundreds of awesome organization ideas you can find a few that will work for you and your situation.  Always be thinking:

  • Will I want to use this system every day?
  • Is this convenient for me?  Is what I use regularly accessible to me?
  • Does it “fit” with how I want my home to look and feel?

I hope this helps but if you have any questions feel free to ask me!!  Do you have any resources you have found work for you?  Did any of these tips or tricks help??
