Simple Organizing Tips

February 18, 2017

"Only Handle It Once" (OHIO)

- Deal with finding a home for objects as soon as they come into the house.

- Do not store items you plan on making a decision about later. 

- While organizing make a decision about an object once and stick with it.
- Do not retrieve items from the trash or donation pile when you begin to second guess yourself.

Simplify decision making
- Limit choices (Keep, Sell, Donate, Trash) 
- Make clear decision rules for each choice. (keep 10 hole-free plastic bags, throw away dirty bags, recycle remaining bags)

- Use broad categories for these rules instead of many specific ones, ("gift wrap items" instead of paper, lace ribbons, small, medium & large bows).

Organize and file systematically
- Place like things together in a designated place. (grain products in one cabinet, bottled and canned goods in another)
- Use broad label headings when filing. (house, cars, medical, insurance, job, education).
- File only important papers.

Buy and keep "just enough"
- Desired items will be on sale again. 
- If you run out, it is not a disaster.
- Discard items you do not use anymore. 

- Do not fill space because you have it. 


Focus on functionality
- Select a manageable target area to organize that you can complete in one day. 
- "Excavate" the target area by sorting into your broad categories. 

- Organize the objects that remain systematically. 
- Use the area only for its intended purpose.

- Maintain the clear area.
