I would absolutely LOVE to be a professional organizer. What a joy to go into people's home and help them get organized so they can remove some of the stress from their lives. I believe it is a ministry and one I am praying about working toward.
But in the mean time, I thought I would share a few tips and even a few spur of the moment pictures from my own home.
I love boxes, bins, and baskets. I also love hooks, hangers, and ((HUGS)).
Tip number one is to do something everyday. Unless you have lots of time to spare it is usually too overwhelming to tackle a huge project like organizing your home. I suggest taking 15 minutes each day to tackle one small item.
Day 1 - Clean out your 'junk' drawer - yes, you know the one. Here is a picture of mine. Using small drawer trays really works to help keep everything in it's place.
Day 2 - Declutter and organize your laundry cabinet. In here I use bins for small light bulbs, shoe cleaners and brushes and extra laundry needs.
Day 3 - Spend 15 minutes going through your clothes closet - get rid of as many items as you can that you have not worn in the past year - oh, I know you have lots of those - so did I. I use a shoe cubbie in my closet and a shoe rack in the entry closet for sandles. My husband also added a shelf above the closet door for some of my purses.
Day 4 - Clean out one cabinet in your bathroom. Get rid of all those lotions and potions you NEVER use. I use bins in here also but I have purchased may plastic and wire shelves to get extra use out of 'shelfless' cabinets.
Day 5 - During the commercials of that program you are watching - clean out each section of your refrigerator. It only take a couple of minutes to do each shelf. Who needs to watch all those food commercials anyway.
Day 6 - Go through all the mail that has piled up on the table or in some other place it shouldn't be. Make sure you recycle all that horrible junk mail. Better yet - it only takes a couple minutes to go through you mail everyday - I go through my mail each day and keep an in box on my desk for things I must attend to that week. I toss everything else.
Day 7 - REST!!!
I have so many other tips and ideas so here's the deal. If this is something you are interested in reading and seeing pictures about just leave a comment and if enough people out there in blogland show and interest I will add posts like this one more often. It will help me really get more organized and learn how to take better photos.
By the way, though I love organizing, my home is not always in perfect shape and is sometimes even a mess. I suppose I should post a few of 'those' photos someday.
Considering Organization A Joy!!!
