Just finished a radio interview with Fisher in the Morning on Mix 103.7. Lots of fun! Apparently he thinks his Clemson jersey is a "polo." Men and fashion...
We talked about how there are three main components to how organized you can be: your space, your stuff, and YOU. Out of the three, YOU are the hardest to change, so it's best to modify the other two as much as possible. That way you have fewer habits to change and it's less stressful to maintain your new sense of order.
And, as always, we hit on the basic procedures: sort, purge, categorize, then go buy your new shelves, bins, baskets, etc. (if you even need them after all of that.) I hate seeing the money people waste buying containers and systems that don't work for them because they didn't take the time to make and follow a plan. Seems to me, they'd be better off spending that money on a professional organizer, who can help them better use what they've already got .
At any rate, I had a blast, and hope I helped somebody...or at least made them laugh! If you want to check out their website, they're at http://mix1037.com. Click on Mix in the Morning to see their post. Thanks, Fisher!
