I also get emails from them with great ideas! Today I got one that they titled "
Our Best Organizing Tricks of All Time." Well, naturally it didn't take long for me to open that and start reading!
Here are their suggestions. Frankly I don't agree with them all, but see what you think! My comments are in italics.
- Identify Obstacles
- Choose Uniform Containers
- Avoid the paper pileup!
It’s tempting to drop a stack of mail on the counter and walk away—promising yourself that you will deal with it later. Instead, try going straight from your mailbox to the recycling bin. Once there, quickly sift through and toss out unsolicited junk mailers, flyers, and postcards. Then handle the balance. You have seen this one before in my blog, so I hope you are already doing this!
- Have a Donation Bin on Hand--Here's another one I have encouraged you to do many times!!
Store Items where you Use Them--Again, this is something we have talked about a number of times. Extra sets of sheets? Keep them in the closet of the bedroom where they will be used.
- Conquer piles
- Attach a Guilty Pleasure to a Chore
Their last one I am not listing because I hate it! But, if you must satisfy your curiosity, go to http://www.realsimple.com/home-organizing/organizing/best-real-simple-advice
