I love organizing. I've also worked in the office product industry for 29 years so I have had access to some pretty amazing organizational products. But the bottom line is that the key for organizing all my multiple projects is 3-ring binders.
Oddly enough, they are perfect for projects because of of their versitility and low cost. Ring binders some in a variety of size (1 inch, 1.5 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch and even 4 inch) and can even be color-coordinated. What I love most is what you can put in a ring binder. There are cool sheet protectors, pockets, dividers, business card pages, note pages, and zippered pockets that can help you customize your binder based on your needs. So if you are looking for a "non cumbersome" method for organizing, ring binders are the best bang for your buck!

I recently organized our medicine cabinet and hallway closet with small plastic containers and baskets from the dollar store. I put all like items together in each basket.

As this year comes to an end, my resolution is to have more time to enjoy my life and not be overwhelmed by the things I have to take care of.
