Last week I got an email from my sister, the gist of which was "My closet is out of control. Help!" Luckily, I knew just where to point her: the newly launched Getting Organized magazine. Only a month old and I've fallen in love. Their website has great resources including easy-to-digest articles and videos, and who wouldn't love their slogan: "Treat Yourself to Some Sanity." Because really, isn't that what organization is all about? Making the day-to-day simpler, so you can enjoy life instead of stressing about it.
In answer to my sister's call for help, I sent her this article, Where to Start - Step by Step Organizing Tips. I'd recommend it for anyone looking to tackle a long-waiting organization project but feeling overwhelmed (i.e. that dusty attic, smelly garage or over-stuffed closet). As the article says, "One of the toughest parts is simply getting started and knowing the process."
