Julie's Organizing Formula
  • Sort: Identify what's important to you and group similar items.
  • Purge: Decide what you can live without and get rid of it (e.g. donations, sales, storage, garbage).
  • Assign: Decide where the items you keep will go. Remember, make it logical, accessible and safe.
  • Containerize: Make sure they're sturdy, easy to handle, the right size, and that they look good. The art of containerizing is to do it last, not first.
  • Equalize: Spend 15 minutes a day to maintain what you've done.
