Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to tell you how to stay organized. I love containers. Containers are the best because you have a place to put everything, and everything has a place to go. So, what I would say is, in using containers, I'm working in my office or where ever I am and I have books, I'm getting ready to put them down on the floor. Instead of putting them down on the floor, I have a place to put them. So I put them in my basket, and that keeps me organized. If everything has a place, then you put your item that you're using instantly in that place, and you keep yourself organized. This is a great, this little office, we're using this office because it does need some organization, and it was a great, I found this little piece, and it's a great little piece that,it's holding some things that, they're not using it like they could be. What you could do is you could label, I love labeling because then everybody, there's no mistaking where things go because it's labeled. So, this could be a great little piece where you have a label on it, and you have check book boxes, and then you have envelopes, and then you have another shelf where you put, maybe your stapler and your adding machine. So, you just label, and you can use it, and just fill these little shelves full, and it will be a great place. And then, instead of having all of this on the desk, he can put it in his shelves. So, make a place for all your things, and then, when you're finished using the stapler, the calculator, what ever it may be, you can put it back in its spot and then you have, you've continued to keep a neat office. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how to keep yourself organized.
