school lunch refrigerator binIf you’ve read just about anything I write on the subject of organizing … you know I love labels. There’s just nothing better I know of to help keep an organized space organized over the long haul. They also do wonders for helping others you live with be empowered to join in on the organizing fun.

But what else can we do to empower others? Look around your space and see if there are things that could be made simpler, allowing those you live with to pitch in. How about installing kid-level hooks in the bathroom so your kids can hang up their own wet bath towels? What about keeping healthy snacks at your kid’s eye level so they can help themselves and save you the chore? Or maybe you could post a weekly dinner menu on the fridge so your spouse can get dinner started if he gets home before you. Or simply give labels a try.

Take a quick tour of your home and see if you can find one simple solution to empower your family members to get on the organizational band wagon … then, have fun making it happen!
