I am not a perfectionist.  I just want to organize things particularly my mess.  I am "makalat or burara" because I have a mañana habit.  It's easy to stash away the things meant for storage,  But it's often a chore finding them when you finally need to use them.  I really want to achieve the arrange-it-now way of organizing things.  I am working it still.  In fact, I've done a couple of things organized this week after I searched to death a piece of important paper.  It took the whole afternoon for me to find it.  Hinanap ko pati sa trash can.  Finally, I found it inside a native pouch.

I tried to be organized again and again.  They say, don't stop dreaming.  Habang may buhay, may pag-asa.  In organizing things, habang may mga bagay, may kalat talaga.  Kaya don't stop fixing it.  Kapag hindi mo na kaya, kumuha ka na ng yaya.  I ended up searching online how to organize things since I can't afford to hire a professional organizer. I applied it on small package first.  I grabbed my writing item purses.  I have two purses, one i keep at home and the other one I bring everyday.

this one I bring everyday

this one I just keep at home

I started organizing them by spreading everything on the table.  

I made separate piles for that I want to bring, keep and throw away.  

I gathered the items I use everyday.

I put on "keep it" pile the items I only use at home during art and craft projects.

I threw all the items in the "throw away pile out.

And the organized operation done.

'Yung throw away label? Syempre tinapon ko na rin.

I am terrible at organizing too but I sure do need to throw some stuff out.

You have really nice handwriting. I hope you are able to stay organized. Good luck.

Hi Red!

Tagal ko ng di nakabalik dito. Pasensya ka na ha! :)

Gandang post ito. Reminds me to keep the clutter away here in our home. With Triz around, ang hirap i-maintain. Hahaha.

Nga pala, may tanong ako. Do you still do paid blogging? If you do, are you registered at Blogsvertise? If not, you might want to submit this blog to them. :) There are opps when a blog has a PR. Like this one.

Ako rin, gusto ko maayos ang kwarto ko, kaso ang problem ko naman is SPACE.

Ang dami mong dalang panulat araw-araw, ang bigat siguro ng bag mo :)

You sure have lots of pens/stationary! I kept mine in a similar bag near my pc, only 1 pen is near the notebook to jot thing down. I hate clutters, so everything must be stored properly. For my 2 son study tables, I used those small plastic drawers to store the stationary.

By the way, how's IloIlo doing? are you affected by the thypoon?

wow so many pens! i find the most relieving part of organizing is having to throw away what I don't want in my life anymore because this will mean that life does go on.
