Organizing doesn’t have to be a huge, daunting and overwhelmingly time consuming endeavor.  If committing to your whole house or an entire area has been near impossible, break it down into doable parts.  Try tweaking systems a few minutes here and there.  It can make a huge difference and keep you moving forward in your quest to finally get organized.   Here are a few photos of some quick and simple fixes:

1.  This organizer is great for the trunk, portable, folds flat, has a zippered closure and an adjustable or removable divider.  It keeps everything where you need it and is also terrific to fill with your groceries, so they don’t land in your lap while driving around sharp curves.  It’s currently sold in Costco for about $20.

63.  Keeping lots of little things organized is easy when they all have a defined and contained home.  I’m loving my new supply organizer items commonly used during organizing sessions. Purchased at the Container Store, it’s narrow, has a top that snaps shut, a handle and fits nicely into my work bag.
