I am a great organizer when it comes to school/profession, but I really struggle with our home.

Adrienne- my first thought with organizing cloth diapers is to get one of those over the door vinyl shoe holders. You can organize by size etc, and put what you use most in the middle/easy reach level and the others are there and organized for later, but not having to dig through everything.

So here's what we attempt to do- DH is not great at it, but I try to keep after him.

Mail/papers- like others if it's junk or won't be used it gets recycled immediately. I have to two plastic paper organizers on my island. One for bills and one for other. At the end of each week I go through it. If it's still in there, it goes in the trash or to the computer to be paid. We have large filing cabinet where we put important papers and can easily find later on.

Laundry- we each have basket and when things come out of the dryer, they go directly into the correct basket. I also only do laundry if I have time to put it into the wash and dry otherwise it will sit wet or wrinkled for too long and I have to do the load over again. William's socks go in a laundry bag that I hang on his laundry basket so they stay somewhat together.
