It never ends. Just as I think that I’ve got this whole organized life thing going, I find a part of my life that is cluttered. Which is kind of great, really. Because there are always new ways to get organized that people share on their blogs on this amazing internet thing. I am constantly inspired to try new ways to organize and love feeling the benefits of being organized.

Here are some of my recent favorite finds on living an organized life.


Cords! More Blog Finds for Living an Organized Life

My home office has a ridiculous amount of cords. Even in this age of wireless and streamlined computers, there seem to be cords everywhere.

Martha and her team do it again! A simple wire basket, a power-surge protector and a hole in your desk (if you’re up for that) can keep your desk area looking clean and serene.

Speaking of cords, did you know that you could buy an upgrade to your wall outlet with a USB function? Genius.
