3 Keys Thursday: 3 Key Ideas for the I Love to be Busy Personal Style

I love to be busy folks thrive on hectic schedules. They're often good at managing their time (that's how they manage to do so many things), but unfortunately, organization can be more challenging.

Not surprisingly, the biggest stumbling block to their organizational success is lack of time, so developing an efficient system is essential to their success.
  • Divide and conquer. As mentioned in yesterday's post, these are the folks who often benefit from having separate storage for separate activities (e.g. a backpack for school items and a duffel bag for their after school sport). Depending on their organizational style, they might also like compartmentalized storage that allows them to see at a glance what's missing from any given container. Separating supplies by activity also prevents items that are needed for one activity from getting mixed in with materials for something else. 
Not all styles can manage drawers,
but I love to to be busy folks
do well with them, especially
with a drawer divider.
  • Keep it simple. Since time is at a premium for the I love to be busy person, the best containers are those that require as few steps as possible so that they can put things away even while they're on the go. Lids that lift, pockets with Velcro and open containers are often good storage solutions.
  • Set aside time to deal with the inevitable pile-ups.  I love to be busy people may lack time , but they're usually good with schedules. Scheduling in a time to pick up and restock, just as they schedule other activities, can help them restore order and keep track of all their varied supplies.
