Sandra Felton has written a number of books, and she has a way with words. For today I’m going to focus on Organizing Magic, published back in 2006. It’s a book I’m now passing along, but not before sharing these two gems:
Here’s Sandra explaining the problem with being disorganized:
A disorganized life is, at its core, annoying. ... Let the irritation energize you. Let it propel you toward finding a solution that works. ...And here’s her description of one common problem:
Disorganization is a problem of self-neglect. In short, when we’re disorganized, we’re failing to treat ourselves with the love and respect we want others to show us.
“Oozing” is when things don’t make it back to their designated area. Keys are not hung on their hook by the door. ... A jacket is draped on the back of a kitchen chair. When things ooze out into the open where they don’t belong, the peace of your home is compromised.
