I keep reading Susan Pinsky (both books) and her organizing tips really clear my head. I have many of the classic ADD characteristics. Luckily, ADD was unknown back in my early days or I would have been medicated right out of any creativity I had. An earlier lifesaver for me was Sidetracked Home Executives (the classic whose writers allowed the mega successful Flylady to use their method and terms)
I am so proud of the SOCK SOLUTION. That is because I did this myself BEFORE I read Pinsky. Not for me: I don't wear socks very often, but for Frugal Son. Even the most organized people lose socks: the SOLUTION is to buy zillions of identical socks in one or two colors.
I thought of this! Frugal Son has been in sock misery for years. For his birthday, I bought him 40 or so pairs of socks in his chosen color. These are junky socks from Big Lots, but that's OK: he's happy. After a year or so, I will get him a new batch.
It's not often that someone like me comes up with a solution worthy of a professional organizer. I am beaming with pride.
Do you have any little tips like that?
