I'mbasically running a paperless office which used to be a constant battle for organization.  I'd say I'm very organized and  attribute that to my CRM, scanner and my assistant but not necessarily in that order.  I can't work in chaos so I always try to stay organized.

My file cabinets (yes, there still is some paper), plastic bins to store stuff in the garage, checklists for the business. And there's the reality I am not as organized as I could be and I am not going to obsess about it.

Everything in its place.  Learned organization from my mother who was very organized.  When I cleaned out her kitchen I remembered whereeach item had been when we were kids growing up.

Sometimes its good to re-organize..my closet- twice a year, our pantry etc..once a year. Baskets in the garage and clear plastic bins (so I can see what is there) help tremendously. I like things organized thank goodness so does Gene!

One good way to be organized is to put things in the right folder/ drawer, or bin immediately and not let it pile on your desk.

I make a place for each thing I intend to find later (keys, receipts, etc) and then I always put the thing where it "lives".  Deep regrets if I don't bother.  I keep a smallish drawer as my place for "important things I must not lose" (like the school trip form, car renewal notice, etc).  Then it doesn't have to stay in the open, and I know where all the important things can be found.  It really works for me.  

I also kept a tiny notebook labelled  WHERE IS IT?, in which I recorded the home I had selected, to make sure I could remember where I squirrelled things away.  I was very good at making a home for things, and less good at remembering the location!  Oddly enough, it wasn't a stupid idea.....  :  )
