Getting organized in 2012!

Thanks to Carly Poppalardo of Real Organized VA for sharing tips on home organization. We all learned a lot from Carly's tips and from each other's strategies (and challenges!)

Carly's Top tips were:
1) Put like with like (including "zoning" the kitchen and even sections in the fridge)
2) Downsize to what you need, use, and love
3) Store things where you actually use them
4) Have what you use most often in the most accessible place
5) Containerize -- give everything a "home"
6) Go vertical
7) One in, one out
8) Label with words and picture
9) Start small - don't take out more than what you can do in an hour
