How to Cheat at Organizing

I hope you all had a great and organized weekend!!!

When it comes to tackling clutter, its okay to “cheat” or take shortcuts. Instead of worrying about being a perfectionist, try for simple, real-life solutions that work for you.

Jeff Bredenber, author of How to Cheat at Organizing came up with 4 ways to make organizing a little easier…

***I like to call them the 4 S’s***

Strip: Pull everything out of the cluttered storage area, pantry and closet so you can assess what you have.
Scrap: From foods you never eat to clothes you never wear, throw away the stuff that is "no longer good, no longer relevant to your here-and-now life,”
Sort: Put like things with like. "Cluster them together into easily understood groupings," he says.
Store: Return items back into their appropriate storage areas using proper storage bins and boxes.

This is another great way of tackling your drawers, cupboards, closets, and more.

***On Wednesday find out how to tackle your garage!!!***
