While cleaning and organizing your house may not sound like something you want to do, it actually can have many benefits for you! Organizing your home can provide familiarity and consistent routines. Also, by decluttering your home you can improve your overall focus on what matters.
Here's some quick tips for organizing your home:
1. Add compartments to your kitchen and junk drawers
Make categories for your kitchen drawers and group them together using containers. You also want to put your most-used items toward the front of the drawers. You can do this in a junk drawer (it’s OK we all have them) by putting in bins.
2. Invest in organization
Buy matching sleek boxes, acrylic or woven or plastic, to use as organization in craft closets and pantries. It’s also great to buy some labels to go along with these so you can know exactly what is what! You can use these labels for your spice cabinets and baking ingredients too. These are great in your desk too to organize pens, pencils, post-it notes and more. By using clear cannisters and clear bins, you can always clearly see what is inside.
3. Color coordinate your closet
It sounds crazy hard but once you do it the first time it makes your life so much easier. By organizing your closet by color then you can easily pick out which you need every day and it’s very aesthetically pleasing.
4. In with the new, out with the old
Practice simplifying and minimalizing your home by every time that you get something new, you donate something old. Whether it’s a piece of clothing, a gadget or a kitchen tool, swap the new item in and put the old item in a donation bin.
5. Take advantage of space in your home
Make small simple changes like:
- Stand up cutting boards and baking sheets
- Buy a bottle holder to be able to store and easily grab water bottles or tumblers
- Stand bags vertically in the freezer
- Get a container holder for your Tupperware lids and pot lids
- Store cans sideways in wire baskets
