Organizing is a multi-step process by which a person decides on a way to store items so they can be easily placed, found, retrieved, and maintained. Everything should have its own ‘home’.
The first step, requires sorting through items to determine which are most needed, which can be thrown away (or recycled), and which can be given away.
The second step is deciding how the freed space can best be used, what storage items and sizes will be needed and how to label those containers. Decisions made are based upon personal priorities.
The third step involves putting in place any additional needed storage systems for items, such as shelving.
The fourth step involves placing items in the space, giving priority to items that are most often used by making them the most accessible. Items that are used most often should be on the bottom shelves and items used seasonally are stored on the higher shelves.
The fifth step involves disposing of items that were previously selected for the trash or for giving away. Junk should be eliminated right away and thrown in the refuse containers. Items donated should be added to a container depicting the donation place; Goodwill, Salvation Army etc. You may also have a container that you will want to donate to your church or that you will save for a rummage sale.
