Organizing is easier with a tote!

toolkit-supplies-540x380organizing-toteOne of my most useful tools for organizing is my tools tote — with Post-it notes, sharpies, tape, mini-stapler — you name it.

Why is it so helpful? Because when you go to clean a closet or organize under the sink, if all your supplies are right there, you will not have to pause in order to find supplies. You’ll be able to keep sailing through your organizing project until it’s done. You’ll have your label maker, plastic bags and rubber bands right at your finger tips.

No more having to hunt down the tape dispenser, Post-its or box cutter. Especially for the ADHD folks this tool can be a godsend. If you’re wandering the house looking for a tool, it can be a nightmare getting back on track.

Purchase a plastic tote online, at the hardware store, big box store or organizing store. Then fill it up.

Here is a list of ESSENTIALS for your kit:

  • Post-it notes
  • Sharpies
  • tape (transparent tape, mailing tape, blue painters tape)
  • mini-stapler
  • rubber bands (regular size & large file band size)
  • small scissors
  • pen, pencil, highlighter
  • dusting cloths
  • plastic bags (gallon, quart, sandwich, snack)
