'A place for everything and everything in place' - a seemingly lofty goal that far too often eludes me despite my best of intentions. This year, however, I was determined to kick my efforts into high gear with just two goals - 'Write it down' and 'Get organized'. While the first is pretty straight forward, my goal of organization has almost left me wondering where to begin. I was delighted when I was introduced to a brand new book 'Clutter Rehab' - the title alone caught my attention immediately. Written by self confessed organizational junkie Laura Wittmann who shares 101 tips on how to conquer clutter and achieve the '"high" that comes from living a life of simplicity and order'.
Filled with handy and inexpensive (and quite often free) tips and tools to create an organized and efficient system in your home and throughout your daily routines. With ideas on 'how to repurpose items for creative storage', or even basic reminders on fool proof techniques we've all experienced before, such as 'invite guests over' (this one always works wonders in my house), I have to say I'm quite excited to start using some of these ideas.
While there's no one quick and easy solution to getting and staying organized, these tips will definitely help to get you on the right track to create a system you'll be able to maintain. This really seems to be an area where most of us struggle a bit and could use a little improvement, so I'm hoping to make this a more regular topic of discussion here and I'd love to hear any tips or tricks you might have to share.
Ulysses Press has been kind enough to offer a copy of of Clutter Rehab to one reader, to enter, please leave a comment below sharing the best piece of organizational advice you've received or alternately the number one area where you'd like to be more organized.
