Recently, while I was bored at work, I read through the 27 week Scraproom organization class. Two weeks later, I created a lo in about 2 hours! It was taking me days before. I'd have to find things and I'd get sidetracked. Now I can just turn in circles in my chair for the most part and have everything I need at my fingertips!
My biggest problem is that I had too much stuff. Stuff that was pretty but I'd never use. I only scrapbook with a few key items and now they are the center of my scrap room!
If you feel like 27 weeks worth of stuff is too much to read through or deal with, there are sections that may not apply that you can skip. I was able to skip about 7 sections since I don't have stamps, punches or a few other items they talk about. I also don't go to crops so that skipped a week. Also, there were some things I already had organized such as pictures and photo albums.
Another thing I (and the class) would recommend is definitely not buying anything until you get towards the end and see what you already have. I started making a list of organizational items to buy but by the time I got to the end, I discovered storage I already had around the house.
