Papercrafting Organization: Prep for Sorting & Purging
Good Evening Everyone!
Is everyone ready to get down to business – to sort through their treasures and let go of those things that are dragging you down, stealing your space, and robbing you of creative energy?
I sure hope so because that’s what’s next!
As I reviewed the many comments left on each of the Get Organized series posts I realized this series has come along just in time for many of you.
Quite a few of you have sent emails and left comments about needing the information being provided, and some of you have jumped right in and gotten started!
You have no idea how happy that makes me!
I get a lot of joy out of assisting others with organizing challenges and am thrilled that, according to the comments and emails, so many of you are taking the advice to heart and are going full-steam ahead!
For those of you who have not yet put into practice what I’ve shared, don’t fret.
Tomorrow’s post will help you start the actual organizing process and you’ll soon be caught up with the others.
In the meantime, be sure to read through the previous posts (links are included, in orange, down below).
Keep in mind that this is NOT a competition and everyone will approach the advice and tasks somewhat differently.
Again, there isn’t a right or wrong way to get organized. The only way I focus on is the way that works for YOU!
In light of how many comments are still coming in, many from papercrafters just joining in and who are trying to catch up with us; and, because I am still working on responding to every comment that’s been left – answering questions and offering specific advice when requested – I am going to postpone tonight’s regularly scheduled post (subject: the great sort and purge!) until tomorrow.
Now, before you get all pouty (because I know you were so looking forward to more homework!), understand that starting on this tomorrow, after you’ve collected a few supplies and enjoyed a good night’s sleep, will make tomorrow night’s homework easier, and likely more successful.
What supplies do you need for tomorrow?
- Boxes, Bins or Bags (at least five)
- Sharpie Markers or Broad Tip Pens
- Plain Labels or Masking Tape
- Notepad or Scratch Paper
- And, Energy!
What will we be doing tomorrow?
I will be walking you through the sort and purge process – the same process I’ve walked many clients through – and I’ll be sharing a few “tricks” I used to make that process go more easily and faster!
What’s your homework tonight?
- Write down your top one to three high-level goals – why are you going to sort and purge? Share your high-level organizing goals in the comments.
- Think about where you want to start first (what products or areas of your space need the most attention?). Briefly share this info in the comments as well.
- Assemble the supplies above
- And, get a good night’s sleep!
Quick and easy homework, yes?
One final thing…
a reminder for those who’ve been following along
and important info for those just now joining us…
YOU Could WIN!
We are so very lucky to have a wonderful sponsor for our papercrafting organization series – a series all about getting our craft rooms, creative spaces, craft business offices, art studios, portable craft kits (and our study spaces, office and entire homes!) in order – order that can leave us with more enjoyable and functional spaces, increased productivity, less wasteful spending, and more time and mojo for creating (and fun!).
But, they’re not just a product sponsor. Uh uh!
They’re a sponsor who not only provides quality organizing furnishings and products for your whole home, but a sponsor who wants YOU to WIN them!
