Desk with Lamps from Hither and ThitherSometimes, the best tips on how to organize your home don't come from the experts, but from your fellow readers trying to stay organized in their homes. Here's the latest installment in the series: What's your best home organization tip?

"Keep a small trash can near the door closest to the mail box. Decide as you sift through the daily mail which items you will not use and toss them immediately.

For me, those items are ads that I will not need or use within a 7-14 day window.  I also toss any unsolicited mail, and political campaign ads, and I coupon so I watch the mail for bargain offers but only keep those that pertain to my use, or those of my friends with whom I partner in our quest to save money in this challenging economy!" --Guest jrocks94

I love the tips about necklace storage. Mine are so nice to look at, I consider them art and hung them on nails on my bedroom wall. Plus, if I don’t see them I don’t wear them and THEN what good are they?!

Another top notch article, Ms. Larkin! Keep em comin!!

I think I may do the same thing but on the inside of my bathroom door. That’s where I do most of my “getting ready.” -Elizabeth
