Organize the Whole Shebang in '09!

Lifestyle and Organizing Expert, Krista Colvin had advice for getting organizing in '09!

The three must-do's projects to get & stay organized, as well as stay sane:

  • Design Routines + Schedules
  • Create a "She Spot"
  • Make your own She- itt Kit.

Routines + Schedules

Life sometimes isn't as overwhelming as we make it out to be. When those little things seem overwhelming it's time to get back on your routine and get your groove back. 

  • Morning routine
  • Evening routine
  • Weekly routine

The "She Spot"

Create a special little place in your home that is perfect. Every girl needs a spot to call her own.  The end result is a spot where you can sit on the phone and chat with your best girlfriend and only gaze upon beauty-- no projects, no mess, no paperwork that needs your attention.Tips for creating your "she spot":

  • decide on the location 
  • declutter the area 
  • make it beautiful 
  • make it comfortable

The She-itt Kit

Your secret weapon. (Clutter control Kit) I believe clutter (aka the-c word, which I avoid) is just a pile of decisions you have yet to make...  and that's okay because you were busy living life. (*itt stands for: It Takes Time;)

  • Totes or paper bags or trash bags.
  • Organizing Signs.  (I suggest sliding them into sheet protectors so they stay pretty ;)
  • Binder clips or paper clips to attach the signs to the totes/bags. 
  • A timer
  • A good music CD
