We have a den that has sort of become the toss and go room for stacks of papers that have been cleared from our kitchen counters.  It is all the mail and things that we need to keep and well, file away.  As a busy mom to twins, I just feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to keep up with everything.  But now I have a reason to get things in shape.

The [IN] Place line of products includes durable poly folders that you can see through which makes it easy to find things quickly.  I have a file cabinet full of the dark green folders that have lost their tabs and I now have to figure out what’s in each folder.  Peter Walsh’s system lets you use an erasable marker so you can write directly on the folders themselves.  There are so many great things in the collection that once you get organized it is so easy to remain organized.  He also talks about how we as individuals need visual cues, and that having a system in place that makes things visible and that is color coded makes the idea of becoming organized more attanable.inplacesystembypeterwalsh_starterkit

So your first job is to clear the clutter and Peter states not to go out and buy things until you actually see what you have.  I am guilty as charged when it comes to this, because I will go out and buy all sorts of cutsie containers and stuff and get home and then start going through things when I had it all backwards.

You also should be going through your files every 6 months.  This is where I had a dilemma as I hang on to everything and feel like I am drowning in paper.  What I like most about this system is that it is simple, clean looking and makes it easy to keep it that way.  I intend on getting my house in order and the [IN] Place system is a perfect place to start.  Im so tired of feeling disorganized and after listening to Peter Walsh talk, I am more motivated than ever and actually excited.  Now if he could organize me up a few extra hours of sleep?
