Happy National Organization Week! As readers of my personal blog know, I go a bit batty in October, what with the lead up to my own personal High Holiday, Hallowe’en. But also! The month opens with a celebration of organizing! Which is an utterly delightful quality in a month, don’t you think?

To mark this very special week in this very special month, here is a round-up of recent articles I’ve read about organizing:

But back to the matter at hand, tell me…what are you going to organize this weekend?!?
