Never underestimate how important you are as an individual when it comes to organising your home and your life.
Your personality is totally unique to you.
I stress on this site that systems should be made that suit you as a person and your way of life – and that getting organised should involve creating new habits and systems that suit you and enhance your life without making it too much of a huge effort in the process.
If getting organised is too much like hard work, the chances are you won’t keep at it. Therefore in order for it to feel easier to you, you need to understand yourself and look within to realise your potential.
How does your mind work?
You have to understand how you work as a person and then organise your home accordingly.
This will ensure that you will have a fully functioning and calm household where everyone knows whats what – making it easier for you to have time and energy for the more important things in your life – your goals!
Getting organised isn’t just for the naturally organised, anyone can get more organised than they currently are, its just working out how to get there that people find difficult.

How can you get organised to suit you?
Most people would love to get organised, both in their homes and personal lives – as it will ultimately give them more time and money and less stress. However, it’s easier said than done, and the key to being successful is to know what your organising personality really is.
Have you ever been to someones office or home and seen them using and praising what seems to be a fail safe system, only to take the idea home with you and it to fail within days?

A good example of this would be a post system, where they have drawers for each persons post, and then a drawer for post to go out of the office / house. This is great IF all people use it, and you don’t mind your outgoing post waiting until there is enough to take it to the postbox. If you are the type of person who is very spontaneous and works better knowing that everything has been done immediately then this method will drive you mad (so will watching other peoples post build up without then doing anything about it – grr!) and would therefore fail if you installed it in your space
