I realize that right now you probably can't afford a professional organizer to help you dive into your clutter. But, do you have an Internet connection and for now, that's all you need to evaluate what you have, what you need, and more importantly, what you don't.
Lorrie Marrero, professional organizer and the creator of the Clutter Diet, an online source for shaping up, breaks down her "economics of organizing" for you pack rats trying to save some cheese. She writes a three-part series for us explaining the many ways organizing saves you money and puts you back in control of your life. I think we can all use some of that right about now, so enjoy her first installation and check back next week for more.
