What “Glee” Taught Me About Organizing.

What “Glee” Taught Me About Organizing.

It just so happens that my kids and I are “Gleeks”, the term used for fans of the show.  It’s one of the few programs on TV that we can agree on and watch together.  But it was a recent episode where I found myself especially enthralled – the cast was dealing with issues of […]

An Overwhelming Inbox

Recently, I did some work in a small office.  Because it was a small office, there were a few things that just never got done.  One of them was regular checking and organizing the email inbox.  The first time I opened this office’s email account, I found more than 500 emails sitting in the inbox.  […]

Repurpose a Dishwasher Silverware Rack

If you are replacing your dishwasher, consider keeping the silverware rack from the old dishwasher.  This can be a great tool to keep art supplies orderly on a desk or craft table.  Markers and large paint brushes would keep from falling through the mesh design of the rack.  Tubes and small bottles of paint can […]

Alternatively, if the lid-less container is large enough, it could be used to hold cleaning supplies under […]

Copy your Wallet

If you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to have lost your wallet, or heaven forbid have it stollen, you know how stressful the process of cancelling all your credit cards and reording new ones can be.  Do yourself a favor and make a photocopy of the front and backs of all your vital cards in your […]

Making Something out of Something Else

You’ve probably head the saying “making something out of nothing.” Usually, this sentiment is offered when someone is making a bigger deal out of something than necessary.  However, when it comes to organizing, I say, “make something out of something else.”  It can be a very effective creative philosophy to hold when attempting to organize […]

Treat Your Car As You Do Your Home

I feel it is important to keep your car as clean as you do your home.  For many of us, our car is an extension of our home because we spend so much time in it.   Take the time to keep it orderly by removing trash daily and maintaining a schedule for cleaning and […]
