Out Of Sight Out Of Mind

One thing to remember when organizing is to place items that you need to take some action on: bills, paperwork, projects, fix-it items, etc in a place where you will be reminded.

Many of us forget tasks that need to be handled because they're stuffed in a drawer or closet and forgotten about.

Here are a few tips:
  • Outgoing mail next to your mailbox keys, car keys, or purse
  • Bills next to your computer if you pay online
  • Household fix-it items next to the television remote
  • Errands and grocery list's next to your car keys or memo in your smart phone
  • Exercise shoes and clothes next to your bed so they're the first thing you see in the morning
In your organizing routine begin placing items that need immediate attention in conspicuous places and you may start to see your old habit of procrastinating turn into a new habit of staying on top of things!

Happy Organizing!
