With all this recent influx of organization knowledge and expertise-exposure, I know you're wondering to yourself just WHAT ARE my favorite organization tips. (surely you are, right?) So I thought I'd share a couple of them that have already had an immediate impact on my life:
Move stuff that is task-specific closer to the action.
Jon and I have two adorable dogs. Whenever we feed them, its always a pain because we store the huge container of dog food in the kitchen pantry, yet we feed them in the living room. Every pet meal time, its a "who's turn is it this time?" to feed the dogs. After hearing that particular tip, I got a Rubbermaid commercial food storage bin and commandeered it for dog food. It its neatly into a storage area near the where we feed the dogs.
Simple enough idea, move the food where the bowls are, yet, it has REALLY made a difference. Small organization changes that take into account HOW you live your life are the way to go. It made a chore into something easy and (almost) fun.
