Do you have a drawer piled up with stuff? Here are my 3 easy steps to getting it organized!


Step 1: Sort & Group
This is the first step whenever I am organizing for a client, whether it’s a drawer or closet or entire garage. You want to see what you are working with. While you’re pulling things out, group like items.

Step 2: Play Tetris!
Unfortunately, I don’t mean the computer game. It’s all about working with what you’ve got. You’ve got a space and you need to fit your pieces in it. Playing around with different setups takes time, so keep working at it until you make the space work for you.

Step 3: Do what your momma told you!
Like my mom always said, “Put things back where they belong!” The key to staying organized is being consistent. Now that everything has a place, put it back where you got it when you are done using it. Things will pile up again if you don’t do this.
