Organize Your Home


Enough!

By Akindman,

This is the third of four articles this month regarding organization – January seems like a great time to clean things up and get the New Year started off on the right foot.  There are hundreds of thousands of folks offering free advice, professional services, books, videos, TV specials on getting one’s life and surrounds organized.  My Google search on ‘organize your home’ yielded more than 54 million results. Searching the same topic under books on Amazon.com yielded 652 books.

From the lessons learned department – the easy part is getting things where they belong and the hard part is getting the family to help maintain it!  Learning new habits is a true challenge for most of us, especially when we have so many bad habits when it comes to putting things away – in their proper place.

Getting your house organized will go a long way to maximizing efficiency. There is no single right way to do it: The trick lies in finding the way that works best for you.

Here are a few of the Web Sites that I reviewed and believe you might find helpful in your home organizing endeavors:

Organized Home - Clean House, Cut Clutter, Get Organized at Home! (http://organizedhome.com/)

HGTV Start at Home (http://www.hgtv.com/topics/organization/index.html) - Simple storage solutions and 1-day projects.

Unclutter (http://unclutterer.com/2008/05/27/where-to-start-organizing-your-home/) suggest four ways to get started: 1) Start by organizing the area you first see in the morning; 2) Start by organizing the area you first see when you come home after work; 3) Start with the area of your home that makes you seethe; and 4) Start at the top and work your way down.

While reading magazines, paper or browsing the internet, I am always looking for neat ideas and that might me.  Here are a few images that might appeal to you:
