4 Misconceptions About Organizing

Eevn with all the TV shows and articles about organizing and how to do it, people still carry misconceptions about it. When I meet someone new who is interested in learning what it takes, I often have to dispel one or more of these misconceptions. I recently reread one of my favorite organizing books, Organizing From the Inside Out, by Julie Morgenstern. In it she does a great job giving you another way of looking at those misconceptions.
