Quick Tip: Are you a Righty or a Lefty?

Are you a righty or lefty? - Organizing with a Side of Fabulous blogOK...I'm going to put this out there knowing full-well that to many it will seem completely ridiculous. Truth is, I don't care because I have enough clients and people in my talks that tell me they never thought of it this way: Are you right or left handed?

This is what can make the difference between effort or ease in staying organized.

If you're right handed, keep things to the right of you for easier access. If you're left handed, keep things more to the left. In one kitchen I worked on, I noticed everything was left of the stove. However, my client was right handed. I moved everything to the right of the stove and a day later received a text that the switch made her life SO MUCH EASIER. She couldn't believe that such a little switch could make such a major impact.

It can, Sunshines.

So your quick tip for the day: place things according to being right or left handed. It's always easier when we don't have to cross our body to get things. Or at minimum, place things you need easiest access to on your dominant hand side and things you use less on the opposite side.
