|My mission this year is to organize my things. I have been going to stores and looking at what items are available and have bought some already and started putting things in containers. I am obsessed with plastic containers and organizers… that whenever I see them in a store, I get so excited. Make Room is my first stop and if I can’t find them in Make Room,I go to Ace Hardware or Japan Home Center where everything is either P 55 or P 88.I am starting by disposing 80% of all the things that are stored that i do not need to make my task easier. As my cousin would say “keep it simple. if i don’t even remember an item or have not used it in more than two years or more, then, away it goes! we are lucky to live in a country where charities take almost everything, and, i try to spring clean often. one man’s trash is truly one man’s treasure, even a pair of pants or shoes is so treasured in a country such as ours.”
I have been taking my time and getting advice from friends and family to show me how they organize their homes. I actually invited myself over to my cousin’s apartment because I wanted her to show me how she organizes her things and this is what I learned from her. See how she organized her place and her valuable advice.
Getting organized will totally depend on one’s lifestyle so each one will have his/her own style as to which organizer to buy. I am finding out that it is not just a matter of buying the organizer but having a system as well as to how and where you will eventually put everything.
If all fails and I cannot figure out a system to get organized, I might give Kathleen Ong a call, She is a Professional Organizer and makes a living organizing people’s spaces.
