Are these your drawers?
Last night I had the pleasure of presenting Organizing Made Easy, in Harleysville, PA (just north of Philadelphia). If I had only known that the Phillies were going to be in the World Series, I would not have scheduled the seminar last night – it was game one of the World Series. My hats off to all those Phillies’ fans (including me) who attended. Those who attended were able to learn how to get organized AND catch the end of the Phillies game at home. And you were rewarded with a win!
As usual, the participants were delightful. We had the typical audience with only one person having their spices in alphabetical order. They were quite surprised to learn that if you have a McCormick spice in a can, other than black pepper, it is over 15 years old. If you would like to see how old any of your McCormick spices are go to www.spicecheckchallenge.com.
Only one person in attendance already stores her socks and underwear vertically in her drawers. I demonstrated how this simple vertical approach maximizes the space in drawers. They saw the huge benefit, but I’m not quite sure if they believe me that you can “retrain your socks.” Nevertheless, it is true and well worth the chuckle.
With laughter and jaws dropping, the 2-hours went by quickly. Before everyone left they received a package of 3M Command Strips™. If you have never used Command Strips before, you don’t know what you are missing! Command Strips™ allow to you decorate and organize damage free.

At the conclusion of the evening, many expressed an interest in attending two other upcoming seminars Paper Management and Time Management for Self-Happiness. Be sure to register early as the seminars can sell out.
