Ohh, I see.
Well, that can be your goal! Organization should be your "light at the end of the tunnel" and remind yourself of the time when you're so overwhelmed, you don't even know where to begin. For me... I hate it, but I found myself in it often. I'd start cleaning up, and it'd seem to get messier the more I "cleaned" and I'd just get fed up with it.
If it's like.. an "office" or a room that's a complete havoc, take a "before" picture. Clean up. Get baskets. File slots. Pencil/pen holders, just stuff like that. Take a weekend out to completely revamp. Get one of the Mommy Family Planner/Calendars, hang it up, write down all appts or notes. Stuff like that. Then take a picture. Have both within eyesight.
Also, you can always take at least 15-20 minutes out of your time to tidy up. It honestly doesn't seem like much, but once, I timed it with just a simple egg timer.. I got a LOT done during that time! :D
