You can find a lot more tips for the season from Organizing You Way, and tips for after the holidays, including organizing your bathroom, kitchen, pantry, as well as organizing your papers, tax information, etc.
Here's an outtake from Mandi's mission: "Each of us have different priorities, preferences, lifestyles and needs. The fact that I don’t have a junk drawer may seem totally ridiculous to you, and the fact that you toss your socks into your drawer without pairing them may seem ridiculous to the next person. But the goal here at Organizing Your Way is never to make you feel like you need to meet some unwritten rule or standard of Organizing 101.
If you’re frustrated by your current system, then yeah, let’s tackle it and find one that works better for you. But if letting the laundry pile up and then tackling it all in one day is working for your family, stop feeling guilty and embrace your system!"
