Organization is the foundation to a happy home. A chaotic organization system can lead to more messes and more time spent trying to clean them. To transform your home from unorganized to fully-systematized, stay tuned for our four expert organization tips.
Expert Organization Tips:
Tip No. One: Understand The Area.
It can be difficult to organize a room that does not hold a specific purpose. Take time to understand and determine what purpose each room holds in your house. If you have spaces that are unused, give them a specific purpose. For example if you have an extra bedroom that holds an old sewing machines and some random boxes, transform this space into a home office. You will find it easier to navigate and organize your belongings when all of the spaces in your home are defined and definite.
Tip No. Two: Go through EVERYTHING.
You cannot organize your home if you do not go through all of your belongings. This process may take a really long time; therefore, break it up into different rooms and do not move onto a new room until you have completed the current room. Go through closets, boxes, drawers, etc. You will want to sort everything out into four main piles: keep, donate, trash and put away for later. These piles will determine what stays in the room and what does not.
Tip No. Three: Invest in Organizers.
A struggle many homeowners will face is not owning enough organizing containers. You will want to purchase more containers to help you store items. You can buy bins for under your bed, baskets to sit on shelves, closet organizers, etc. There are an array of organization systems awaiting you online or at your local store.
Tip No. Four: Stay Motivated.
Organizing can be boring, let us be honest. To make organizing more fun, give yourself rewards. Once you complete a room, reward yourself with something that is special to you. This can help you stay on task and focused.
These tips are perfect for any room in your home. All it takes is a start date to transform your cluttered home into an organized masterpiece.
