Work Chaos doesn’t seem so dumb in their great tips of how to be, and stay, organized.

  1. Reduce before organizing
  2. Write it down now
  3. Have one inbox & process
  4. A place for everything
  5. Put it away now
  6. Clean as you go
  7. Develop routines & systems

Personally, I have found putting everything away now is the best way to stay organized. Also, developing routines is pivotal. Putting my keys, (lack of wallet) three main cards, cash, and my shoes in the same place every day. Never looking for these every day saves time and headaches.
