Tip #2: Purge before purchase.
It’s tempting when you embark on an organizing project to run out and buy tons of pretty baskets and boxes and bins. Trust me, I understand. I find The Container Store to be a little slice of heaven. But my tip today is to purge before you purchase. Once you’ve pared down your clutter and sorted what remains, you will then (and only then) have a very clear picture of what you need to buy to keep everything orderly.
