How To Be Organized: Editor Brie Dyas's Organizing Tips

Though I live, breathe and sleep decor as the editor of Stylelist Home, I'm not the most organized person. (Isn't admitting it half the battle?). I'm always envious of those who have, I don't know, beautifully color-coded bookcases. I take a more laissez-faire approach to how I keep everything in its place. Basically, I'm a piler. I believe in organized chaos, artful stacking and, um, lots of hiding of messes. The thing is, though, I know where everything is exactly. Ask me for a copy of Catcher in the Rye from 7th grade, I'll have it to you in 2 minutes. So, maybe there is some merit in my system.

If this sounds familiar, you might agree with my favorite organizing finds.
