It seems this time of year I am always organizing and re-organizing! From my office to my kitchen to my closet–things get out of place and I decide it’s time to re-organize the space.

There was a great article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Wednesday, February 1. One tip was to have five file folders and label them Action, To Do, To Read, To File and the last one with a category you may have a lot of paper for such as school papers, etc. When you get your piece of paper, make a rule that you will not touch it more than two times and opening the mail counts as the first time! Act on that piece of paper right away–file it or throw it!

I liked this tip–especially the part about only touching it twice. I tend to move my papers from one place to another so I’m going to try to adhere to this tip!

Happy Organizing!
