If you’ve seen store circulars lately, you know that back-to-school time is approaching.  Each ad is filled with storage solutions to maximize every inch of dorm space. With the vast selection of colorful containers currently available, now is a great time to get organized.  But don’t rush out to the stores yet!

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they are trying to get organized is to buy containers first.  When you buy containers first, you run the risk of either buying too many containers or not enough.  And since you haven’t assessed your storage needs, often you won’t buy the right product.

Start with the challenging task of sorting and purging, take an inventory,  THEN reward yourself with the fun part….the shopping.  Make sure you purchase all the matching containers you need at once, because the selection of containers available becomes much more limited after the back-to-school season ends.
