One of the most effective methods of saving money is to be organized. Being organized keeps you from buying doubles of things that you already have and helps you to better use bulk purchases. If you have your things stored in an organized fashion, you will be less likely to waste what you have already purchased. You have to be careful to refrain from "Over-Organizing" and you have to do enough organizing to fit your life. You should be able to find things relatively quickly and you should have a place for everything. If it takes you longer to organize your stuff than to search for it (after your initial organizational endeavor), you are "Over-Organizing". It should not take you crazy amounts of time to put your stuff away, it should be relatively simple to maintain your organizational system.
