A Sneak Peek into the home of Professional Organizer Aby Garvey of Edwardsville, Illinois, owner of simplify 101.
HER ORGANIZED SPACE: Home Office
HER ORGANIZING TIPS:
1) The more you love how an organized space looks the more motivated you will be to keep it organized! Infuse your organized spaces with creative, personal touches. Use containers you love. Add elements that make your space look and feel like you. You’ll be happier and more productive.
2) Don’t spend time searching for the perfect organizing system. Instead, give a system a try and then tweak it until it works great for you.
3) Remember that being organized is a combination of organizing projects and organized habits.During the project phase you sort, declutter, select storage and set up your organizing systems. To stay organized, you need to develop the habits necessary to use your new system consistently and effectively.
HER ORGANIZING STYLE: Creative and eclectic! And I have a thing metal buckets.
