The Smart Approach to the Organized Home (book jacket)It's Time to Get Organized

Here are some ideas to help you eliminate the clutter in your life and get organized.

  1. Make a plan and set aside time in your schedule to implement it.
  2. Start small. Pick a closet, a cupboard, a desk, or another area where clutter has collected.
  3. Eliminate items that you no longer use, need or like. Sort items to give away into boxes labeled "donate," "recycle" and "garbage."

  5. Develop a system to maintain your newly-organized area.
