And just to keep it real here I’ll show you the “before I tidied up” picture first: and then after a quick purge and tidy, ahh much better: Those pull out shelves are fantastic for maximizing space and no I didn’t buy them at a fancy organizing store. Next is the drawer system I use to organize my lady things. The before tidy picture: and after a fast tidy and basket addition: The three stackable drawers on the right is where I keep my feminine products. Your challenge this week is to check your closets and cupboards and see if there is any unused space you can utilize by going vertical. Well let me tell you, rolling up the cords and stuffing the basket got old fast.

9 Organizational Planners That Will Change Your Life I’m a procedural person, meaning I like order, direction, process, being on time—all those fun things. (For a more in-depth description, read up on Thinking Talents!) And because of that, one of my favorite things to do every year is pick out a new planner. I’ll do my research, see who has the trendy ones, look for the perfect layout, and bonus points for a little inspiration.
