I'm looking for household organization templates.

I'd like to learn how to optimize the use of my living space. Ideally, I'd like to find a site that would tell me where to put my bottle opener, knife sharpener, and paper towels. Do you know of any websites that fit this description?

Organized Home has free printables. Plus the Forums offer many challenges & tips - a great place to ask where to store your bottle opener. And look under the News Index for the New Year Grand Plan - a week by week, step by step, guide to organizing & decluttering.

If you want someone to help you get started, you could hire a professional organizer. Here's a link for London based organziers. It seems like you could pay for a few hours of work for them to set things up for you, and if you later get overwhelmed, have them come back.

The book Home Comforts is reputed to be a very bossy, describe every detail, book about housekeeping. Might see if your bookstore/library has a copy that you could peruse to see if it fits your needs.
