Just Organize Your Stuff (JOYS)

Just Organize Your Stuff (JOYS)

Welcome to 2007! I try not to set too many New Year’s resolutions for myself, but something that I usually have on my mind around this time of the year is organization. I’ve gotten better at being organized over the past few years, but I’m still lacking a cohesive system to organize all of the different aspects of my daily life.

However, I think I’ve found the answer to all of my organizationally-challenged prayers in Just Organize Your Stuff (JOYS). This is the most stylish and comprehensive organizational system that I think I’ve ever seen. JOYS offers both notebook and filing organization systems, and the beautiful graphic design and rainbow color scheme — what can I say? I grew up in the ’80s, so I’m a sucker for rainbows — are motivational in and of themselves.

Also, check out the JOYS website for articles on organizing your life. They’re very motivational!
