Organize Once...Then Maintain

I have a wonderful friend that is always "organizing" something in her home. This is a great housekeeping practice to maintain order in you home. However, in my friends case, her house isn't that big and she shouldn't need to re-organize her home so many times a year. The problem is that she gets everything organized and then completely lets he house go and has to start all over again. This is exhausting to say the least and leaves her feeling defeated every time she has to start again.

Learning to organize any aspect of your life or your home should be a one-time process. Organization is a simple process when done effectively the first time- clean, organize and maintain. Any more effort than that means you are keeping too much "stuff", a term made famous by the late George Carlin, and not fully organizing your space the first time. Follow along for the next few weeks as I offer real-life solutions to popular organization problems, I may have one that helps you too.
