Organizing Tip of the Week: Buy several of the same storage tools



In the current issue of Oprah Magazine, there's a wonderful article highlighting Peri Wolfman's perfectly organized, gorgeous home.  As I read along, of course I couldn't help but feel the same way on several of her advice tips.  One tip I couldn't agree more with {which almost seems hypocritical to the less is more/bring less into your home tip I've said before} is to: purchase more than you need at the moment of storage tools for organizing.  If you want a streamlined, cohesive look, it's ideal to do this.  When you go to do your spring cleaning, many stores won't carry the same items that you loved last year.  I'm going to leave you with this quote that I enjoyed.  So true...

"Staying organized is like gardening. You're constantly wedding, it's part of your routine".
