When I was growing up, my next-door neighbor’s home was immaculate. You would open the closets and everything had a place. Even the organized drawers in the family-room desk looked like a picture from a magazine.

Or at least I thought it was immaculate. I think now that it was organized as well as clean!

Our home, on the other hand, had its share of clutter. Basically, my parents were probably not into organization–except for our camping "stuff."

We all loved to camp. And we would pick up and go on the spur of the moment, so I guess we had to be organized in that realm of our life.

My parents had all the family camping gear organized in the garage and ready to go at a moment’s notice. If both of my parents had a free week-end, my family was off to the woods in a jiffy.

My parents gave each of us a list of what personal items to bring camping with us. We were responsible for getting those items together and into a back pack–ready to go–in a short period of time.

I think I learned my original organizing lesson from that list.

First, I learned how miserable a camping week-end was when your shoes got wet and you forgot a second pair. Or you did not bring a jacket in April. But when I learned how much easier it was have all my camping items together and ready to go, that part of my life became organized.

After a few such "lessons, I got organized. As much as I could, all my camping gear was in two "milk crates" in my closet for years.

Organization is something that can benefit an entire family or anyone in a family. No more lost time looking for keys, school books, the salt shaker, the trash bags, or whatever. Vacations are easier; long week-ends are a breeze.

It is so much easier on the whole family when everything has a place.

There is no real secret to organizing–good books abound on the subject and the stores are full of organizing aids.

There just has to be a desire to do it and a few minutes a day keeping it up.

And don’t forget those all-important lists. Computers make them easy to type and keep–just print out a new one each time.
