To achieve our goal we will use my secret weapon – LABELS.
We are all guilty of popping out for some stationery, only to find when we return home we already possess exactly the same items elsewhere in the house. We just couldn’t find them earlier – and now we’ve spent a bomb and didn’t need to. Oh well, the solution to this problem is quite simple.
1. Collect all stationery from around the home, and sort into groups of like with like.
2. Decide to keep supplies in a central place – like a cupboard or shelf. Only have the bare minimum in the kids’ room or desk areas.
3. Place all remaining categorised stationery in separate containers, i.e.: glue with glue, in the central cupboard or shelf.
4. Label each container. Labelling has multiple benefits. Firstly you will be able to find things easily. Secondly, clearing away is a breeze – kids (and partners) can help to put things back in the right spot. Lastly, you may save a fortune as it is so simple to do an audit of your supplies, allowing you to only buy what is needed. These delicious looking ‘Thats Mine’ labels are in teal with a “woodlands” font.…
For many people admitting to themselves they have a disorganised and messy home is a barrier to seeking help. Once they have come to the realisation that they will accept help they are then concerned about what their friends and family will think.

The Need/The Problem
Embarrassed of your workspace? Ashamed to have clients/guests over? Can’t find what you need when you need it? Do you lose time due to inefficiency? Are you afraid to file anything? Is clutter controlling you?
Organising Your Desk It may sound obvious, but the most important item in keeping your papers and files organised and on hand is a desk. You’d be surprised how many people don’t have one and rely on boxes and the kitchen or dining room table. A desk doesn’t have to be expensive, nor does it require a great deal of room. Any small corner or even a closet will do. Before sallying forth to locate the perfect desk, measure the space you have set aside for the desk. Decide how much you can afford to spend and check out the office supply catalogues to give you and idea of what is available. Don’t forget to visit the secondhand or used office furniture stores – real bargains can be found there. To begin, collect together seven boxes and label as follows: To File To Do To Read Contacts Office Equipment Magazines/Catalogues Other Rooms Sort items as you uncover them.
