One of the biggest challenges with getting organized is actually coming up with the system for how you will organize _(fill in the blank)____.
What generally happens is we go to the store, find a box about the right size, load it up, stuff it on a shelf and forget about it.
That first step, of thinking through how, when, why and with what other things will this be used, generally gets skipped.
Recently I was talking with a Kiwi Lane rep, Susan Tapply about how to organize Kiwi Lane templates. This conversation provided a great (and simple) example to illustrate thinking through the how, when, why and what else questions for getting organized.
How: KL Templates are generally used together. Most people follow the project “recipes” provided by KL.
When: These templates get used regularly for both scrapbooking and card making.
Why: You can create really amazing projects quickly and easily.
What other things are used: General craft tools, scissors, inks, pencil, adhesive – all common desktop supplies.
The project recipes call out items by size – for frames, and by template design name for borders and accents. After I had this information, organizing Karen’s KL Templates was easy. (See below for a list of products I used in this video.)
