I was reading this article today (Got clutter?: Organizing – How much is too much? – Rochester, MA – Wicked Local Rochester) and it occurred to me that there could be too much organization. There is a such thing as Paralysis by Analysis. This just doesn’t apply to reading. Trying to be super organized to the point of not doing anything at all till you get it correct is not much help either.
My advice to you when you decide to get started organizing is to start with basics. Don’t over think what bins you will need. Just take it one drawer at a time. One space at a time.
You need to organize how you think and live. Not how a book tells you or how someone else does it. Organize your home to your personal taste. That way you will be more likely to keep it up.
