A Round-up of the Best Organizing Tips for the New Year

For me, the beginning of a new year brings with it a “fresh start”. It’s as if I have a clean slate to work with and I want to make the most of it. For that reason, getting organized is usually top on my list of things to do. If you’re like me, you prefer to start the morning with your desk (and house) in order, that way you can get right to work and have a productive day.

I’ve written several posts for you over the years (Wow! I can actually say “years” now!) sharing tips on how to get and stay organized. I thought this would be a good time to revisit some of those posts. Here are 7 that I think will help you get your year off to an organized start. Follow the title links to read more.
