DIY Organizing Projects

DIY organizing projects are endless. Organizing is a year-long process and the perfect time to organize is always NOW. Forget keeping a summer organizing to-do list. Remember that you don’t need to wait to declutter and organize the spaces in your home, office, and automobile. If you want to know how to prioritize and decide where to start and just need a customized action plan and I have a great offer just for you. Read more…

“Personal DIY Action Plan”

This is for those of you who want to work with a Professional Organizer and then execute the plan yourself! We do this in person or online; for pricing I can be reached by calling (760)809-8851 or email me: denise@outsideinorganizer.com. We’ll schedule your session and put together your step by step plan for home or office. Your plan shows you exactly how to:

  • Create more space – let go of unused and unwanted items.
  • Prioritize steps for decluttering – where and how to start the process without getting overwhelmed.
  • Organize, contain, label – know where and how to store items.

Which organizing project is waiting for you…garage, guest room, kitchen, home office?

In the meantime here is one of my 7 Jumpstart Organizing Mini-Projects:

Organize Gift Wrap

If you are reading this during the summer and you are probably wondering why this Personal and Professional Organizer wants you to organize your gift wrapping station now. Being organized means being proactive so why wait until fall or winter to get organized. Check out this blog and learn how to DIY: http://blog.homedepot.com/organized-gift-wrapping-station/.

  • Gather all of your supplies in 1 place. This includes: your gift list, cards, postage, return address labels, shipping materials, boxes, gift bags, gift wrap, labels, ribbons, bows, tissue paper, tape, glue, scissors, etc.
  • Discard all damaged supplies.
  • Determine where the station should be located. If you are short on space you might consider portable storage container and a folding surface to work on such as a seamstress’s cutting board.
  • Make a list of what is missing and you want to purchase. (You can find great savings off season.)
  • Keep a separate envelope or folder for all related receipts.
  • Group “like” items: special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, engagements and weddings; group holiday related items, too.

Most of all, remember that less is more and that using reusable items is not only good for your wallet, it’s good for the environment.
