Ready to get organized?

January is the time of year when we all feel that pressing need to get our...stuff together. The National Association of Professional Organizers has even given January the special designation of “Get Organized Month.”

While a perfectly organized space looks and sounds wonderful, let’s face it: the thought of tackling a completely cluttered area can be unappealing and overwhelming. And really, I think when faced with such a situation: who has the time?

Actually, we all do.

In a story I wrote for Local Living, professional organizer Rachel Strisik shares three simple organizing projects that can each be done in 20 minutes. Broken down into five easy steps, each of the projects should help you feel more organized and, hopefully, energized enough to keep your spaces in better shape all year long.
