Getting and staying organized isn’t as easy as you think it should be. Unless you live in a city where space is incredibly limited (NYC anyone?), there’s a strong chance you’ve got a lot of stuff. Hey, we’re not judging. We love our gadgets, toys, jeans and books too. But, when you’ve got a lot of things, you’ve got to get organized so you can appreciate everything you have. Surprisingly, there aren’t many guy-friendly organizing articles and tips. But, trust us, this isn’t just women’s work.
If you’re on a quest to get yourself organized, you’ll want to take a look at these faves. They’re filled with ideas to ensure everything has a place. When you start organizing, pick one area of your home. It doesn’t even need to be a trouble spot; just get started. Be ruthless as you work through each space. If you don’t (or won’t) use something - get rid of it. Look at certain areas as complete spaces, such as your desk. Once you’ve rid yourself of excess, determine the storage and organizing needs of this space rather than waiting to tackle the entire room. Get the organizers you need for this space and get it in order before moving on to the next area. And yes, it’s likely to take some time to get everything from the garage to the attic in order, but it’s totally worth it.
