Organized - But Can't Find Anything Now?

NJ Expert Organizer, Marilyn Shain Labendz, gives suggestions to finding your things.

So now you are re-organized, de-cluttered, and repurposed...but where is everything? Where is anything?

Family on your case looking for things?

This challenging situation is easily solved.


  • Keep a pad with you as you organize.

  • Jot down where you put something that had been elsewhere

  • When a cabinet, (or a piece of furniture) is organized, make a list of what's in there.

Now you have 2 lists: Keep it accessible, as in a kitchen cabinet and tell the family what and where the list is.

  • ​Items in the armoire, for example.

  • Where particular items are now located.

PRINT THE LIST and keep it as a reminder for everyone.

Update the locator list as you go along, as you may find better places as you organize.

NJ Expert Organizer, Marilyn Shain Labendz, says that having a list of where everything in is important.
