Between work, the kids, and everyday housework, it’s easy to allow clutter to pile up in your home as you go through your daily routine. However, it’s 2019 and with a new year follows a fresh new start to organizing your life and your home. Here are 10 of the best tips to get your home super organized.
1. Repurpose a Magazine File
Gather hot tools (once they’ve cooled!) on a vanity or under the sink with a decorative magazine holder.
2. Block Clutter With Something Pretty
Since it’s often too easy to just throw things anywhere, flip the script and make it harder to cause a pile up. Easy tip-place a plant, or a framed photo on your coffee table or side tables.
3. Label Your Junk Drawer
We all have junk drawers in our house and they can be easily cluttered with the most random things. Best way to organize your drunk drawer is to spell it out in front of your face, these organization hints are hard to ignore, even for the most clutter-blind members of your family.
4. Create a Sorting Station
Tired of endless laundry and clutter in the laundry room? Easy fix—under the folding table, place a basket for each member of your family. Sort the laundry into each person’s bin, and they’re required to fold and put it away.
5. Slip a Dresser Drawer Under the Bed
Before you drag an old piece of furniture out to the curb, consider repurposing the drawers as under-the-bed bins (add wheels to make access even easier). Bonus: Opens up storage space within the closets.
6. Use Clear Canisters
Lack kitchen storage? Utilize your counter top space and choose pretty containers to devote visible space to food.
7. Hang a Towel Bar Over the Sink
Take advantage of free wall space under your kitchen cabinets—put towels, measuring spoons, mugs or whatever else you like within easy reach.
8. Use On-the-Door Racks for Everything
Really, every door in your house could use a rack like this. Use lightweight wire shelves for laundry and cleaning necessities.
9. Add a Cord-Keeper to Appliances
Power cords can clutter up precious counter space. Keep them under control by adding a stick-on cord keeper.
10. Add Skinny Shelves to Your Bathroom
Bathrooms always present an organizing challenge, just because the room has such limited space to begin with. You can squeeze a little more storage in by adding floating shelves right above the toilet. Not only is it functional, it also gives the bathroom an aesthetic look.
