HAPO President's Message

What's Your Sticking Point?
Are you trying to get organized and find that you're stuck and can't take the next step? As we had our Get Organized Month Event ("Ask the Organizers Panel"), the audience expressed how good it was that our team of organizers were there to help them "get over the hump" jumpstarting in getting organized.
All projects and process that involve change are often plagued by these "sticking points" where we can't seem to keep the ball rolling. Sometimes, all it takes is someone to help us get past those points and move on. This is usually where a coach or a change expert can help by identifying how and why we are stuck.
A professional organizer is the best person to have on your team as you strive to become and stay organized. He/She can help you to get through the sticking points, make suggestions on how you can improve your system(s) and even recommend tools to help keep you organized and efficient.

Tips to Get Organized

TIPS TO MANAGE YOUR SUPPLIES
Group like items together. This is a basic, but really helpful start to getting organized. Figure out where to keep items like tools, giftwrapping supplies, crafts, etc. and then reunite the items that wandered away from each other!
