Home Organization Tips
Are you feeling stressed and overwhelmed by all the clutter in your home? Don’t worry, you are not alone! These home organization tips will guide you in your own decluttering and organization process. So you can simplify your life and spend more time on the things and the people you love.
Declutter first, then start organizing
The number one home organization tip is to declutter before you organize. Otherwise, you will spend a lot of time organizing stuff you don’t actually need, love, or want anymore.
Home organization by room or by category
Planning to organize your entire home at once can be a bit challenging. It’s easier to start with a single room and then move on to the next one. This will give you enough motivation to keep going. You might decide to start with the kitchen, the bedroom, the kids’ playroom, the garage, or for example the first area that your guests will see when they enter your home. Another way of home organization is to work with certain categories, for example, clothes, paper, toys, books, bathroom vanity products et cetera. The most important thing here is to start small to prevent you will get demotivated.
Are you really excited and motivated to crush your clutter, you might even consider our Shock Treatment Declutter Method. This home organization method is not for the fainthearted!
Secret home organization tip: maximize your vertical space
One of the best ways to instantly maximize your space is to use your walls and other vertical surfaces. For example the (inside) of your doors, or the walls of your rooms. With door hangers, shelves, and other materials you create more storage space, even if you live in a small home.
Another home organization tip: lookup
Another instant storage maximizer is to use the spaces on top of wardrobe closets or kitchen cabinets to store the stuff you don’t use on a regular basis, like ‘special occasion’ pots and pans, sports gear, seasonal gear like winter coats or your baby’s bathtub. It doesn’t matter that you can’t reach it without help, you don’t need it every day anyway.
