Resolution: Get Organized

A recent survey by Harris Interactive found that the number one resolution is to get organized.  If you are one of the many who said 2012 is your year to get organized…but still haven’t “gotten around to it”, why not start now?

The best way to begin organizing is to take that first step. To start you on your path, here are my top 3 favorite organizing tips from my co-authors in Get Organized Today:

  1. “Before you start to organize, it is crucial that you identify the things you need to support your current life. Not the things you needed in the past or things you might need in the future.” ~Charlotte Steill, CPO
  2. “Use it and love it or give it to someone who can. You have my permission to get rid of any gift you do not use or love.” ~Anne Blumer, CPO
  3. “Keep a donation bag handy. Keep a paper bag in your closet and fill it in between organizing events. A bag out in the open keeps it on the top of your mind.” ~Gretchen Ditto

Don’t let your “get organized” resolution rollover to next years resolution list.  Make 2012 the year that you achieve your organizing goals!
