I’ve been going to Get Organized Now website since I was single. I don’t remember how I stumbled upon the site, but it was definitely around the time I wanted to reorganize my bedroom. I remember joining a “tossing” thread on the forums and committing to purge my room of all the useless junk, unused clothes, and “donate-able” stuff.
Since then, I’ve been addicted to decluttering. In fact, I purge my closets every six months! I do hope this is a good thing.
Today, I have my own family and home, and there is hardly any storage space in my small 78 square meter apartment. Perhaps we have about 16 square meters of storage space in total, and that’s including our closets, shoe cabinet, and Christmas decor stash (but not including the kitchen cabinets). I suppose this is why, up to now, I still regularly pare down and purge my apartment (and, ergo, my life) of all sorts of stuff. My husband knows this, and indulges me in my need for organized simplicity, which is why he voluntarily installed wall-to-wall shelving in his home office.
There’s this great product from GON which I highly recommend, not just for organizing closets, but your entire household:
So, if you’re not a fan of indiscriminate stuff; if you hate missing payment deadlines; if you’re wondering when your last credit card statement was, or if you just plain need to organize your work, family and personal life, then consider trying the Easy Organizer. It eliminates browsing the Internet for articles on how to get organized (which is, really, a big time waster in itself).
