The other day I was organizing my cosmetics drawer and realized I use many different brands of cosmetics for the various portions of my face. Clinique, Arbonne, Maybelline, Loreal, etc.
The same is true when it comes to organizing. There is no one way to do it. Good organizing, for me, involves taking various pieces of the puzzle and finding the perfect fit for a solution to the problem.
I have always made it clear to my clients that there is not just one way to get organized. It is very personal and can combine various options to make it work, just like my cosmetics drawer.
When putting the picture together in a space (just like putting the picture together on my face) it can take various types of systems to make it work for you.
When customizing the best way to get yourself organized, remember that by following one way of doing things just might not work for you. That is why sometimes, my clients have a collection of organizing books but they can't implement the suggestions. They don't fit their way of doing things.
A good professional organizer will be able to see the various options you can use to implement your own unique way of doing things.
That's what will create the look (and function) of the space you are working on.
Whether it's a face or a space, the concept is the same; putting the pieces of the puzzle together to create the whole picture.
If you are overwhelmed with the concept of figuring out those pieces of your organizing puzzle, please contact me at A BETTER SPACE. I will be more than happy to help.
Wishing you an organized week!
