Visualize the End Result

When most people decide to get organized, their impulse is to head to the store and buy containers, says Kim Cossette, owner of The Organized Approach in Atlanta, Georgia. “But that is putting the cart before the horse.” The first thing you need to do is to think about your goal. What would you like your space to look like? What function would you like it to serve? Taking action to tackle your chaos is easier when you know where you’re headed. So hold off on the containers for now and work on your vision. Besides, later on when you figure out what containers you need, chances are you already have something in your house that could be repurposed.
