"My good friend Jane" (that's what my mom always says when she describes her friends) is an organizing queen. She has even started her own blog (a few months ago) with organizing tips and tricks. Every year this is one of my new year's resolutions. Every year I fall short. This is my year!! Jane even has checklists that you can print out. Happy organizing.
p.s. Jane, hope you don't mind that I shared :)
