“Creating a Living Space” – Step 1 – Sorting

The “This is How we Do it!” , my new video series, has official begun … Last week, we looked at the cluttered, basement space that we are starting with.  In the end, we plan to have a peaceful, serene and organized living space.

As you may or may not know, the organizing process only has THREE (3) basic steps:

  1. SORT
  2. Purge
  3. Organize

Today, we are going to focus on “Creating a Living Space”, step 1, which is sorting!

Please take a look at this week’s video and tell us what you think…

Introducing “This is How we Do it!! ” – A New Organizing Video Series

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! The moment that we all have been waiting for… the first video in the “This is How we Do it” series!!

We, at “Order Your Steps” hope that these “how to” videos will help you to get your House in Order… We will show you from start to finish, how to create new, uncluttered; organized living spaces in your home.

** I apologize for the volume, but the best part is the music. So please hang in there.**

Hope you Enjoy!!

We welcome your comments & questions….

Did you clean out the garage?

I must start by letting you all know how grateful I am for my now OVER 300 followers.  Half of my followers are my wonderful fellow blogger friends out there and the other half are my Order Your Steps Facebook Fans (please click link to LIKE”).  I never imagined how great the response would be to my blog.  To date, I have over 3000 hits, which may be small for some, but HUGE for me.  

I pray that you continue to visit me and find something that will be helpful, encouraging and inspires you.  This really isn’t just about putting order to your stuff, but giving you some order to your chaos in your life.

Now that I have gotten all serious on you, you REALLY need a laugh!

Your car is all clean and organized now,

Unfortunately, I can’t really endorse the garage storage cabinets (which look really nice)….

He really should have cleaned out the garage!!!!!!!

What is in your car?

When I worked for Xerox, I was a “field” manager, which meant that I spent a lot of time in my car.  Paperwork, employee files, customer info, etc. needed to be easily accessible, while I was in my car.  In addition, eating fast food while I was on the road…. was fast and a part of my daily work process.  So trash could begin to accumulate! Although my car had become my mobile office, remember, I am an organizer and my car still had to stay relatively clean and orderly.

You can believe, my car did not look like this!
