Summer Organizing Checklist

Congratulations on taking the first step toward creating an organized home! Please read this checklist in its entirety before beginning your organizing sessions. This list is based on my professional experience with clients and is designed to bring the most satisfaction. While the tips are not in a specific order, the weeks are numbered based on what I have found to be most gratifying for my clients.
