Mistakes that will keep you disorganized

By Maria Gracia

Avoid these slip-ups to succeed at becoming organized:

Mistake #1: Assume that containers will organize you.

While containers certainly can be wonderful tools for helping you get organized, containers alone will not help you. For instance, Jack, a photographer, purchased 10 large plastic containers to organize all of his photography equipment.

He divided all of his equipment among the containers, but when he was done, he still couldn't find what he was looking for when he needed it. Jack mistakenly assumed that all he needed to get himself organized was a few containers.

What he really needed was a bit of know-how about, for instance, what kind of containers would best suit his needs, proper sorting techniques, labeling and appropriate storage.
