Arming Yourself with the Right Organization System

There are hundreds of “right” ways to organize anything, whether you're trying to apply order to your finances, your garage, or your clothes closet, but every successful system has a few things in common:

  • Comprehensiveness— The system covers the common components of the area it is addressing (for finances, that would be checking accounts and credit cards), but it can also accommodate not-so-obvious components (such as cash spending).

  • Simplicity— The system is no more complex than it has to be.

  • Appropriateness— The system is a good fit for the user's skills, patience, and available time.

  • Flexibility— The system can be changed as needed when life changes come along.
