Hi, I'm Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to get organized. Depending on what area that you're organizing containers, file folders, having everything in a place and a place for everything is the most important. So, today we're just going to talk about first, first we're going to work with cleaning out, organizing, do we need it, do we not need it. Because alot of times people have, why put paperwork and why put books, and why put things in baskets if you don't even use them or need them. So, first what we want to do is go through and if we're working on a desk, I mean working in the office or working in the bedroom, through out what we don't use any longer or bag it up and take it to Goodwill or take it to Salvation Army. Once we have thrown out and cleaned out then it's time to go through and organize. Best way to organize is to contain everything. Now there are just quantities of different ways, different containers, different ways that you can organize. These baskets are great for just using, throwing, if you have a table that has alot of books on it, you can use these baskets for organizing the books. So, instead of just seeing a whole bunch of books that are just thrown on a table you see an organized, nice basket and then the books are inside. As far as finding interesting baskets, interesting ways to organize, labeling is also a good way to organize as far as on shelves using, if you have readers, using just words like "supplies", "paper", or if you have children that can't read, maybe even putting a picture on a shelf like a ball where all the balls are or a bat where all the bats are, something like that. Those are different ways, different hints in how you organize. This is Ann Myrick and that's how you organize.
