Get Organized: Basic Home Organization Tips
Here are some tips to help you cut the clutter and get organized:
Some folks swear by Flylady's daily emails for cutting down on in-house chaos and Real Simple magazine has more housecleaning and get-organized tips tricks than you can shake a broom at. If you're at a loss, search the Internet or borrow a few books on organization from the library.
Set a timer and try to cleanup and get organized in a set amount of time. Maybe one takes the overflowing pile of mail while the other agrees to battle whatever is growing in the back of the refrigerator. Next week, it's organizing closets and the garage.
Grab a laundry basket and throw in everything in a single room that's out of place. Then, when you have even more time, sort through the basket to get everything organized (and yes, the trash can is a place for stuff)—preferably before you need to start all over again.
There are entire stores (Hello, The Container Store!) devoted to home organization, so you won't be at a loss for a selection of products in a wide price range.
