How To Not Lose Your Phone Charger

How many times have you heard "Is this my charger or yours?"

Confidently answer next time by putting your name on yours.

Because my sister, friends, boyfriend, and mom all have identical iPhone chargers, I put my name on mine recently.

Spread the word! No more nameless phone chargers!

[VIDEO] How Much to Toss When Organizing

I get asked this question all the time so I thought I'd answer it for you! "How much should I really be throwing away?" 

Grab a piece of paper and write down what percentage of things in your office you expect are trash. Do this right now! There's no right or wrong answer.

But whatever answer you wrote down, you will most likely exceed it.

So I don't actually have a set rule each client should stick to.

The number I want you to start with is the one that just came to mind, bumped up a little.

So please tell me in the comments - what number came to mind for you?

How I Used Evernote This Week to Remember A Useful Napkin

5Have you ever found something really useful scribbled on the back of a napkin or envelope? I certainly did while organizing last week.

My client found the cleverest diagram of how to recall measurements of cups, pints, quarts, and gallons.

I snapped a photo with my camera that will be at the ready next time my retired schoolteacher mother pop-quizzes me!

Click here to see the diagram in my Evernote.

Video: How to organize a shared desk

It's hard enough organizing a desk, but is doubly as hard when the desk is shared with a business partner or, in this case, a spouse. This video will teach you a solution for the clutter (and blame) that accumulates on a shared desk.

Do you share a desk?

If so with whom?

What issues do you run into and what would you change about your partner's organizing style?

Will you do things differently after watching this video? Will you share this video with your colleague/partner/spouse sitting next to you?

Please share in the comments!
