"I Have to Organize Once a Year"

­

Myth: "I just did my spring-cleaning so I'm in good shape for another year or until it's so messy again I can't stand it."

Fact: Organizing is not synonymous with spring-cleaning or with periodic endeavors to straighten up.

­Analysis: Proper organizing is a one-time project. With careful planning, you'll never restack, refold, or rearrange again. Good organizing creates a maintenance-free system that uses your daily routines to keep it in the same pristine condition as the day you finished organizing it. A beneficial by-product of organizing is that it counteracts and controls the bad habits that contributed to the clutter you now face.
