Julie Morgenstern, New York Times bestselling author of Organizing From the Inside Out & Time Management From the Inside Out has given rave reviews to a great book we are presently offering.
“Get Organized Today is a wonderful, practical book—pulling together some of the best minds in the industry to help you live a richer, more organized and more meaningful life. Whether you need strategies for restoring order at home or at the office, this beautifully organized (of course!) collection of ideas will be an invaluable resource to you every day.”
With chapters on everything from “Building the Perfect Closet” to “Conquering Your Paper Piles,” this book covers it all, including:
- How to store your jewelry so that you can see it all at a glance using minimum space, without leaving it exposed to dust.
- How the zone system can help improve the efficiency of your office.
- An easy system to organize your children’s toys.
Did you know that you can buy hanging jewelry organizers? Many styles are available. One that I like hangs from the closet rod with 80 clear vinyl pockets where you can see everything at a glance. Find it on the web by searching for “hanging jewelry organizer.”
To organize with the zone system, you mentally divide your office into the space you can reach easily, space you can reach by stretching, space you can reach while standing and then the least accessible spaces (like high shelves). Put the most used items (e.g., the telephone and notepad) in the closest zone; less used items in more distant zones.
You can store toys on open shelves in the bedroom or playroom, so that children can easily find what they are looking for. Place them all on the children’s level. If you use colored dishpans (storing small things: red for Legos, blue for little cars and so on) the children can easily comprehend where to put things away.
Please contact me if you would like to schedule a book signing event at your location in the Seattle / Eastside area. I can also, at that time, conduct a presentation on best practices for making your upcoming move or downsizing project go as smoothly as possible. You can contact me at 425-702-8761.
