When I’m organizing, there are several tools that I rely on to get me from the beginning to the end of a project. These tools are essential for every organizing job and I use them every time I set out to organize something.
Have you thought about organizing, but you aren’t sure where to start? In a previous post, I talked how to determine what organizing project to do first. Today, I’m going to talk about some of the tools that you can use to help with your organizing projects and ultimately meet your organizational goals.
Whether you like to use a calendar on your phone or you’re a paper calendar user, it’s helpful to schedule the time to organize. Just like other things in your life, if it’s not scheduled, there’s a good chance that it may not happen. The organization sessions don’t have to be too long. Schedule when you have some time to focus on organizing without interruptions.
Labels are an essential part of organizing. Each one of your possessions should have a home that it goes back to when you’re finished with it. Labels help to aid in making that happen. There are many different types and styles of labels. Using a label maker will add a uniform look to your labels. I especially like using the label maker when making labels for my files.
Even though you should wait until your organizing project is complete before you splurge on the items that you that you need to finish your project, they are still important tools to consider. Boxes or bins can add a finishing touch and help you to maintain the area that you worked so hard to organize. Some of my favorite organizing containers are fabric covered. They add a pop of pattern or color when I open a cupboard or drawer.
Don’t underestimate time as one of your most valuable tools. It’s a necessary part of accomplishing what you’ve set out to do. When organizing, time is a vitally important tool in getting things done.
