This is my basic premise:
De-clutter first … organize second … measure third … buy last. There is no point in organizing what you don't use, need or love. I will go into more detail in later articles about specific tasks and routines, but for now this is what I would suggest. The easiest place to start is to go through your house with a trash bag and throw out the obvious things like trash and broken items. Then, go though the house with a box or basket and gather all the items that have a home elsewhere and put them in the place they belong. The next overall step is to sort and put like things together. You can now begin to see that having more than one of the same item is taking up valuable space. Decide which one you want to keep, and give the others away. Only after you have sorted through your possessions should you even consider buying "organizing devices" like cartons, baskets, bins and decorative storage items if things are to be left on display. I would suggest that you probably already have many things in your home that would serve that purpose as well. This process is all second nature to me, and while it might initially appear overwhelming to you, I really can make it fun and easy for you to do. Just contact me and we can get started ... it's easier than you think!
