Has your relationship with your home become a little boring or bland? Perhaps you’re tired of dealing with dysfunctional space or clutter in your home? Reignite the flame with these home organization tips that will help you fall in love with your home all over again.
Find a place for mail and papers
It doesn’t take long for paper to pile up. Rather than stuffing these papers into a drawer, we recommend an actual box that can house mail, receipts, cards, schoolwork, etc. The best thing? When guests come over simply pop on the lid and the clutter is gone.
Utilize hidden spaces
The backs of cabinet doors can be a great way to store items and reduce visual clutter. Hang pocket filers for papers, wire racks for spices, hooks for hand towels or dusters and more!
Store food smarter
Whether in the fridge or pantry, keeping food in clear containers is a great way to stay on top of inventory and avoid overbuying—which ultimately leads to waste and clutter. Take a note from the grocery stores and stock your shelves with new items in the back, older in the front so you use what needs to go first.
Clear the counter
While we may think we “need” things out, the visual clutter is not worth it. Clear the counter from unnecessary decor and appliances and instead store them in easy-to-reach places. You’ll enjoy the openness and space!
Declutter drawers and cabinets
Drawers can easily become nightmares as we far too often use them as “let me just shove this out of sight” bins. We recommend using drawer dividers in every drawer of your home, not just the kitchen. Using stackable shelving in bottom cabinets is great way to maximize space and organize some of the hidden clutter. Even better? Look for the stackable shelving with sliding drawers.
Make your bookcase visually stimulating
While books are most definitely intellectually stimulating, they way they’re arranged can also be visually stimulating. Use bookshelves, floating shelves or other creative ways to display your library in a way that is appealing to the eye.
Make your closet a wardrobe
Do you have a handful of outfits that are tried and true and go great together? Store them together in your closet on stackable hangers. Experts say this is not only a better use of space, but will help move along your decision making process when getting dressed!
