In today’s fast paced world, clutter build-up is inevitable. With the busy schedules we are all living in, we have lesser time with home cleaning and organization. The advancement of technology also makes it easier for us to buy things that we don’t really need (online shopping). The result, these items will just end up on our shelves and cabinets adding to the clutter that we are already dealing with.
Home organization can be really stressful at times. The good thing is there are few tricks and tips that everyone can do or follow to make it more manageable and less daunting. Some of them are as follows:
Control the entry way
Make the clutter build up on your entry way manageable by placing a bin, a shoe rack or an open shelve at one side of it. You can also install few hooks for coats and jackets. This way, people entering your house (specially the kids) can have a place to put down their items without making the entry way look like a total mess.
Control the paper
Always set few minutes or so daily to check the paper build up around your house or even just inside your room. Remove anything that you don’t need, recycle them or shred them if they have personal info. Dedicate a cabinet or a drawer where all paper bills and letters must be placed. This way, you’ll know where to find them if a situation calls for it.
A place for everything, everything in its place
Dedicate a spot for everything in your home. Use boxes, bins and clear containers to hold up stuff and things around your house. Make sure to label each one of them for easier identification.
If you dedicated a corner of your house or an open shelving to hold your boxes and bins, it might still look cluttered in plain view. You might want to use curtains to hide these areas. Be creative with it to complement your interior decoration.
Do regular room checks
Take a hamper with you and visit each and every room around your house. Put anything that doesn’t belong in that room inside your hamper. This way, you can put them in their right places in bulk rather than moving them one by one that could take a lot of effort and time.
These are just few of the many home organization tips that we already posted here at our blog. For more of these, check out the following articles:
