How do I figure out giving everything a home?

Question:

I've read lots of books on organizing, but I need help on where to put things in my house. There's a place for everything and everything in it's place. Once I sort, I don't know where to store it or what to store it in.

Answer:
Fantastic question!

The first part of your question deals with deciding where to store items in your house. In order to figure that out, ask yourself where you would look if you had to find the item quickly.

For example, where would you keep extra key chains? I have a little table by my front door with drawers in it. I keep all extra keys and key chains in one of the drawers, because it made sense to me to keep those things together and near the place I think I'd use them.

Apply this concept for every item in your home.

The second part of your question is about what to store things in. I could create a whole website on that...I did! :)

Poke around this website. There are organizing product recommendations everywhere! Start on the home organization page and then use the links on the right.

Hope this helps and good luck to you!
