PILE OF JUNK MAIL, PERSON PAYING BILLS, DINING ROOM TABLE PILED WITH PAPERS
MANY PEOPLE MAKE A RESOLUTION TO GET ORGANIZED IN THE NEW YEAR. TIPS TO CUT PAPER CLUTTER AND ORGANIZE CLOSETS
IF YOU ARE LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, YOU'VE RESOLVED TO GET ORGANIZED. AND THAT MEANS CUTTING THROUGH THE CLUTTER. (TAKE VO) PAPER IS A COMMON CULPRIT... JUNK MAIL ACCUMULATES.. BILLS ARE STASHED.. DOCUMENTS ARE PILED INSTEAD OF FILED. EXPERTS SAY THE KEY TO MANAGING PAPERWORK IS TO ACT ON IT IMMEDIATELY. (SOT - Whitaker "The main thing is to only touch the paper once. You need to deal with it, make time to deal with it because you don't want to put it in a pending file. You want to put it in the trash or in the to-do or put the bills where they have to be put so you don't have all of that paper clutter. Touch it once, that's the key." :18) (ON CAMERA TAG) ANOTHER KEY TO ORGANIZATION.. ACCORDING TO WHITAKER.. IS LETTING GO. SHE SAYS IF YOU HAVEN'T USED SOMETHING IN A YEAR.. GIVE IT AWAY. THAT'S SOUND ADVICE WHEN ORGANIZING CLOSETS. HERE ARE SOME OTHER TIPS, AS OFFERED BY HOME PRODUCTS INTERNATIONAL. --USE ALL TYPES OF BASIC STORAGE.. SHELVES, HOOKS AND CONTAINERS. --PLACE EMPTY SHOPPING BAGS ON THE CLOSET FLOOR FOR CLOTHING TO BE DONATED AND FOR DRY CLEANING. --CATEGORIZE CLOSETS TO MAKE THE MOST USE OF SPACE.. FOR INSTANCE, HANG CLOTHING IN GROUPS FOR WORK, CASUAL AND FORMALWEAR ON COLOR-CODED HANGARS. --FINALLY, REMOVE OUT-OF-SEASON CLOTHING FROM HANGARS ALTOGETHER.. PUT IN SUITCASES STORED IN CLOSETS.
