The big shift and sort

I love organization.

I love the tools. (Office supplies are my favorite gift to give and receive. And who doesn’t love a basket or box with a cute tag?!) I love the functionality and the ease it brings to life. I love the outcome.

Lately I’ve really been getting a kick reading the blog Things Organized Neatly. It is like sift, sort and order ‘porn.’ Sigh. Here are three radically different samples from their site just to give you an idea. You’ll have to go check it out for even more beauty:

My obsession with this site has me planing changes in my life’s organization. My first step is to clean up my car’s act. Now, I won’t say I have THE dirtiest car, but I’m certainly tied with your average mom of three (mind you, I have one kid) or old man with an inability to throw away any newspaper he ever buys. Here are several projects I’m undertaking to get my wagon in ship shape and shift and sort myself out of impending hoarder status:

I can’t wait to get my craft and clean on. If planning to organize feels half as good as being organized, I’m gonna LOVE these projects!

    Tip for keeping the car clean: designate one day a week to do a pick-up and vacuum. I usually go one morning after dropping J at preschool and hit the Churton St. car wash. For $1-$1.50, I can vacuum out the car and that makes a world of difference.
