Keep reading to learn our top tips teaching you how to organize your home.
1. Closet Clutter
Closets can quickly become a clutter disaster because we tend to pile everything into the closet since it has a door to keep the mess hidden. We recommend investing in some hanging organizers so that you can put the back of the closet doors to use.
In the sections of the organizers designate a pocket for each family member or designate spaces for everyday items such as sunglasses and keys.
2. Tech Items
Thanks to technology every home has tablets, cellphones, and laptops, oh my. The problem is that all of the cords and chargers can quickly contribute to clutter. We recommend creating a charging station near an outlet that everyone can easily access.
You can even use a desktop organizer or a charging dock to store all of the electronics while they are charging in their own individual slot.
3. Purge While You Declutter
While you are decluttering every room in your house, purge while you are cleaning. Have a box for stuff to donate and one box for stuff to sell. If you run into items that you forgot you had, this is a sign that you probably won’t miss it if it’s gone.
Make it a mission to fill both of the boxes because this will help you get rid of extra stuff, making cleaning and organizing in the future a lot easier.
4. Call in the Pros
If your house feels like it is way out of control, it might be time to call house cleaners that have experience with organizing and decluttering. Professional house cleaning can give you a fresh start and they will set you up for easier future cleaning.
The great thing about professionals is that they will also disinfect and sanitize as they clean, leaving you with a sparkly clean, and organized home.
With certain items, it is a good idea to use a moveable caddy when you are organizing. For example, you can stash all of the office and art supplies in a caddy that you can easily move from room to room or even outside for an art session. Caddies are also easy to store and put away and they keep similar items together in one place.
