How To Be Better Organized12:00 AM
Over the span of this blog's existence I have been asked "how do you stay so organized" at least once per day on average. It is something that has been ingrained in me since childhood, which then became second nature. As I grew up I found more resources and better tools to help me get better in organization.
Here's what I have learnt:
1. Have a designated place for everything. The space you assign to different things should decided on the basis of accessibility, logic and space. You want to make sure you are able to find things quickly and without having to move anything else around. "Organized" looks different for different people and different things. Be your own judge and do it for your own needs.
2. Put things back. Once you have assigned a space for keys, bills, gadgets, make sure to use it. Put everything in its place immediately after using them, or coming back home, don't leave them on the bed, by the night stand or in the kitchen. That defeats the purpose.
3. Use organization boxes and trays. They are useful for organizing area which have several small and miscellaneous items. For example, medicine cabinet (see the video below), stationary, bills and receipts.
