Tips for Home Organization

Let’s face it. Most of us put off organizing our homes, because it feels like a project requiring an enormous investment in time and effort. But, who says you have to organize your whole house all at once? A little goes a long way and you’ll be amazed at what a difference a few changes can make in the battle to conquer clutter.

Here are some easy and brilliant home organization hacks to get you started:

Use Drawer Organizers

No more messy vanity or desk drawers! Boost your productivity and have easy access to all your items. 

What you’ll need: STORi Clear Plastic Vanity and Desk Drawer Organizers

Hang Jewelry on a Pegboard

Store your Shoes Heel to Toe

 

To maximize space, for each pair of shoes you own, display one shoe with the toe facing out and display the other with the heel facing out.

Double Up on Hangers

 

Wish you had more closet space? Don’t fret. Try this: hook two hangers together with a soda can tab to keep outfits together and to take up less closet space.

Hang Pans on a Wall-Mounted Rack

 

Save cabinet space storing pans, pots, and other cookware on an unused wall.

What you’ll need: ZESPROKA Kitchen Wall Pot Pan Rack

Use Clear Containers for Food Storage

 

Efficiently organize your countertop and pantry with clear, airtight containers for food storage.

What you’ll need: Chef’s Path Airtight Food Storage Container Set

Store Cutting Boards on a Door

 

Save space on shelves or in your kitchen cabinets with this simple hack from That’s What Che Said.

Add a Cord Bundler to Appliances

 

Keep your counter or floor cord situation under control by adding a stick-on cord bundler to your appliances. 

What you’ll need: Command Gray Cord Bundler

Apply the “One In, One Out” Principle

 

This is an easy way to halt clutter in its tracks. Your storage space is not infinite. When you acquire something new, whether it be a new toy, a new shirt or new jeans, donate an older toy, or older piece of clothing. Easy as pie.

What you’ll need: Self-discipline

 

All of these solutions will help you make your house a bit more organized, as long as you have the basics covered. 

The basics:

  1. Make your bed
  2. Pick up all the clothes off the floor
  3. Put your clean, folded laundry in the closets or drawers where it belongs
  4. Put your shoes away
  5. Gather and keep your remote controls in one location, placing them in a box or bin
  6. Clean out your refrigerator and throw out anything that is expired or smells “less than fresh”
  7. Go through your pantry and toss out stale food or anything that is past its expiration date
  8. Recycle your junk mail

The basics are your foundation. Start here and then move on when you are ready!
