Organizing Tip 1: A Place For Everything

It amazes me how many people find organizing tips helpful so I will share one of the things I do each week to be organized. Organization comes easily to me. Most people I know will tell you that is one of my best strengths.

Have a place for everything, and put things back where they belong. I believe this starts early in life. Teach your children to put away their toys when they are done playing with them. This is not hard. They can do this. If you name any item in my house, I can tell you right where it is--providing my husband did not move it without telling me which makes me nuts!

If you don't have enough storage space, shelves can easily be built. (My dad had a lot of various kinds he made--see pictures of the things he made for me on my blog all about him at My Funny Dad, Harry).
