To Be More Organized
Before you drive over to Hobby Lobby for a ton of organizational bins, remember that this New Year’s resolution is extremely difficult to fulfill.
The problem is a misunderstanding of what it means to get organized, says professional organizer Ben Soreff. True organization requires a full-scale review of your living space and a decision as to how you want to maximize that space. However, “most people skip the review and go straight to shoving and hiding,” he says. And when those shoved objects inevitably begin falling out of their cramped lodgings, you end up right back where you began.
