Watching her YouTube channel is like getting a crash course in keeping your things organized and streamlined.
When you’re this organized, it means that your counter spaces and table tops have plenty of room to shine.
It’s organized, color-coded, and arranged to a tee.
“Shelving, totes, and peg boards are great for organizing office and craft supplies like ribbon, tubes of paint, stacks of paper, and extra file folders.”
“Calendars are your best friend when it comes to staying on top of things and meeting goals. Having separate calendars for work, fitness, and extra-curriculars will not only help your overloaded, forgetful mind, but will also motivate you to work towards different goals set for you and your family.”
Especially if you really like clothes. Things can get out of hand, very quickly.
“The way you put away your clothing can make or break your organizational system.

Closet dividers and color coordinated hangers can be used to mark each section. Scarves are really difficult to store, and they can become seriously annoying if they manage to take over your closet. Using a towel rack is a simple, cost-effective way to keep them under control.”
Especially when it’s time to organize the bathroom.
“In order to avoid a giant, cluttered mess under your bathroom sink and in the drawers, use an over-the-door shoe organizer to store a variety of items like makeup and hair accessories.”
