Organizing Quote

I'm guilty.

Guilty of not being able to keep up with reading my magazines. I'm now down to one subscription and I have a stack that I'm slowly chipping away at. See, even Professional Organizers get behind on tasks!

I just finished reading the March 2012 'De-clutter Your Life' issue of O "Oprah' magazine and really enjoyed reading an article called, "Journey to the Center of Gayle's Closet."

In the article, Adam Glassman, O Magazine's Creative Director along with a small team of helpers assist Gayle King (Oprah's 'bestie') with a closet intervention: sorting, purging and organizing her clothes closet.

It's a great piece written by the very talented Lisa Kogan. She is so funny, I'd read the phone book if I knew she wrote it...

There's a section at the bottom of the article showing products to help to organize a closet--that's where I got the following quote from...

Quote: "What good are boxes and bins if you can't easily tell what's in them?" says Adam Glassman.

"People can last a day or two without food and water, but no one can live without a label maker!"

Loved that. Had to share. Who is running out and getting a label maker?

Lisa Kogan actually wrote a book called "Someone will be with you shortly." I've never read it, but I agree with you - she's hilarious - so it's on my list. :-)

I'll put that book on my list, too. But first, I'll have to get back to reading books. Kinda hard to get through a book if I'm months behind on magazines! Thanks for stopping by... :-)
