Let’s Get Organized

Do you find yourself humming the words to “Let’s Get Physical” by Olivia Newton John?  Or am I just showing my age?

Today is all about some simple tips and tricks to help you clear the clutter in your home or office…

#1 – Upgrade your address book for a classic Rolodex. They’re retro-chic and easy to keep updated.  I know digital seems to be the way to go BUT I really wish I had of kept mine from years ago.  This was an easy way to store business cards along with names, addresses and phone numbers.

#2 – Who still has CDs?  I know we have a lot around the house but I have purged many of them once I found Pandora.  If you still have CDs, purge your CD clutter once and for all.   Have your CDs converted to digital files at riptopia.com. Then Sell or donate the used CDs to use to pay off debt or for a rainy day.

#3 – Have a small bathroom and not a lot of space?  Why not buy a hotel-style hairdryer and install it on the wall.  It will save you space, time and energy in the small bathroom.

#4 – Organize vanity essentials on a vintage tray. Très organized and très chic.

Or you can use Thirty One’s Glamour Case  

or Thirty One’s Swap it Pocket   

#5 Use an extra wine rack to hold rolled-up magazines.

#6 Use cutlery trays in your drawers, but to save even more time, stash everyday flatware in a countertop caddy.

You can also use Thirty One’s Your Way Bin  

#7 Buy 10 pairs of the same gym socks, to minimize sorting.  I do this for hubby and I.  It saves so much time sorting.  Plus if one gets a hole in it, you can just save it to pair with another one later on.

#8 Stash kids’ art supplies on a lazy Susan so everything is easily accessible.

I love Thirty One’s Oh Snap Bins for this too because you will also be able to hang them up on a rack to get them out of the way and off the table.  Still in easy reach if they are needed.

#9 Organize household bills in an accordion file with month-by-month pockets.  I also have one for all or our receipts for tax purposes for the business.  Another alternative is Thirty One’s Fold n File which I use for a mobile office.

#10 Hold onto paint chips, fabric swatches and brochures from your last redecorating session. You never know when you’ll need to reference them. Store them in an accordion file.

What are some of your best tips?  Share them with us for a chance to win…

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
