Let's see . . . I'm big on containers and labels. I like having everything labeled so it's easy for the kids to put things away, and subs really appreciate it as well. I especially like containers like baskets and boxes for bookshelves and desk drawers. I'm more organized in small areas than in open areas, so I like putting my desk items in small containers in my large drawers. I also don't allow myself to put things in places other than where they go. I have one basket near my desk that is a "catch all" where I put things that I can't put back for some reason or things that don't yet have their own spot. I make sure I clean that basket out once a week.
