By utilizing storage boxes, vertical sorters and binders, we were able to create order out of the piles.  Everything has been assigned a place to make it easy to quickly find things and to maintain the order.  Organizational products can be found pretty much anywhere these days, but some of my favorites include Ikea, The Container Store, Target, Menards and Office Depot.
