With the start of the New Year many have begun undertaking New Year’s resolutions. Usually these resolutions are to get in shape, or to budget more effectively, however there is one resolution that many overlook and can help you in many areas; getting organized. If you’re looking for tips to stay organized this year keep these in mind.

Start with your medicine cabinet. Start with something small that you can accomplish quickly to get you started. Clean the shelves and consult the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for disposal of unused or expired medication. If you can’t recall when you last replaced your toothbrush toss it, you should replace your toothbrush every three to four months.

Create a filling system to help you stay on top of your bills, or any other notices. You should purchase a slot organizer for your desk and label each slot. This method will help reduce any duplicate copies of documents you may have. Also use separate folders to store receipts and proof of payment.

One major thing to do is to clean out that junk drawer. Nearly all of us seem to have that one drawer that seems to accumulate an assortment of pens, take out menus, and expired coupons. Generally these drawers are located in a central area of your home. To start getting it organized take everything out of the drawer, discard anything broken or dirty. Now use open drawer containers to place pens and pencils, and use larger containers for other items.
