Welcome to Organizing School

I mentioned this before but I wanted to come back around to this topic of similarity and discuss how it works in organizing.  I suppose one might call this a secret to creating an organized space.  I think when we are organizing a space there is some confusion about what to use, how to group and how to decide what goes together.  Most of the time the goal in organizing is to help make it easier to find things that we are looking for.  But sometimes the goal is to make ...continue reading
