In this Instructable, ill show you how to get organized!
Step 1: Realize how unorganized you are!
The first step to getting organized is, well, to realize how unorganized you are! If your like me, not a neat freak or far from it, then this is the hardest step. Actually, my mom made me get organized because she said "this place looks like a pig-pen!". You may have other motivations, but the end goal is still the same. Take a look at your stuff... If it looks like the pictures or anything similar, YOU NEED TO GET ORGANIZED!!!!
Step 2: Figure out what you need to do to change it
For me, I had to:
Get a new desk+drawers
Get rid of a bunch of junk
Get extra materials
You may have to do all or none of the above, choose things that fit your needs!
Step 3: New desk!
For me, i badly needed a new desk, so i took a trip to Ikea! Where else?
I picked up some drawers and a table top, witch all fit together nicely. After "cleaning" of my old desk and taking it out to the dump, i put together my new one!
Step 4: Get rid of a bunch of junk!
Well, the name says it all. You need to be brutal in what you throw away! Most of my stuff could be recycled (old papers, plastic). Note to all packrats like me: if you have to think twice about it, THROW IT AWAY!!!! Stuff really piles up and you don't want your new drawers looking like your old ones now do we?
In order to maintain this cleanlenss, i desided to tape my chords together so they dont get tangled like in the pic!
Step 5: Get extra materials
I was allays out of pencils and things like that, so i decided to stock up! You should try to get a nice cup or something to put them all in, not just scattered all about your new drawers!
Step 6: Set goals
I was always forgetting my projects and thins like that, so I decided to use a generic system of reminding my self, post-it notes!!!! Once I'm done with the set goals, i like to put a big check across them! It feels so good!
