House and Home
An organized home is a happy home! Having everything properly organized helps the home stay clutter-free. Remember there should be a place for everything. Here’s how to get started in your home.
The first step is to tidy up the house and have everything cleaned and ready to start sorting. Go room by room and see what hasn’t been used in the last six months, as there are probably many items you can get rid of!
Create piles of garbage/recycling or to donate. Once you know what you want to keep, everything will need a proper spot. If you have something that doesn’t have a spot on a shelf or basket it will always be left out looking messy. So a very important key to organization is having proper storage solutions. You can never have too many baskets and bins. Storage has come a long way from hiding under the bed — there are stylish storage options available that complement your decor.
A great spot for extra storage is the back of your doors. This is useful especially in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and closets.
Loose papers and magazines are a very common thing that pile up in the home and add clutter. Set up a filing system and stick to it to keep piles of paper at bay. Keeping this organized will also help you know where everything is.
If you have young children then you know all about toys cluttering up the house. Choose one designated area in the corner of a room to keep their things organized in bins and shelves. It will keep your home looking better and also the kids will know what they have to play with.
Keeping the house organized can be done easily and makes a huge difference for the whole family.
