Thanks to Becca (Offbeat Bride’s former intern) for sending me this awesome article from Oh My Handmade featuring three stupid-simple tricks to getting organized.
I’m not obsessive about cleaning, but I AM big on organizing, and the author of the post perfectly articulates why:
An organized life will increase your productivity. As clutter disappears you’ll find that you can think more clearly. Clutter has a type of noise to it, doesn’t it?

Comments on Taking organization a step past “omg, BASKETS!”
I wonder if I can apply this to my receipts…they are all white. FUDGE!
I haven’t graduated to baskets yet, some things are still in cut off boxes from the pizza place. But at least getting things grouped by type has helped! All the light bulbs together, all the batteries together. Instead of searching for things every time I need it.
“As clutter disappears you’ll find that you can think more clearly. Clutter has a type of noise to it, doesn’t it?”. THIS. I always tell people organized space = organized brain.
I am very much the organizer of my household… Baskets, fancy boxes, those plastic drawer sets… those are some of my greatest pleasures in life (something my partner will NEVER understand)
So true!!! I love this 🙂
Just reading this motivated me to gather up all the adhesives and put them in 1 basket in the garage. YES!
