The new year sparks the desire to start fresh! We think the best place to start is your humble abode. Because who doesn’t love an organized home? Follow these 5 rules and you’ll be on your way to calm and collected.
Organized Home Top Five Rules
- Do one area at a time. We mean it. Just ONE.
- Take out EVERYTHING so you can see what’s available.
- Sort belongings into groups.
- Use containers to group those objects together as they are grouped.
- Don’t feel bad for throwing anything out that may be broken or expired. Donate items in decent condition.
Closet Take Over
Out of sight, out of mind is a common mistake people make with closets. Even when the door is closed, and you can’t see your stuff…it’s still there, living in chaos. So, take everything out and organize into groups. Pick out baskets or bins to keep the groups together. Take it up a notch, and make them matching. After all, being organized and looking good go hand-in-hand.
No, we don’t mean the place your guests enter your home as the “entryway.” You keep that clear of clutter. What we’re talking about is the place kids, dogs, groceries, and dirty boots come in.
This is a heavy traffic area that’s used daily. And the best way to maintain it is to only keep the things you use each day. If not, get them out of there. When you know where things are, and they are in the RIGHT spot, it’ll make your life so much easier.
Toy Box Turned Room
It started as a small amount and now has grown into a whole room. If you have children, you know it’s difficult to maintain an organized home while you have a million toys scattered. But, what if we told you it doesn’t have to be that way? Well, less can be more. Sick of picking up a certain set or toys? Donate them, toss them in the trash, or start a toy rotation by keeping them in the closet–out of reach for a few months.
