A well-organized home is a home that is not only much more inviting to return to, but it’s also a home that is much easier to keep clean and tidy. If organization is just not your thing, or you’re struggling to figure out the best way to keep your spaces neat, read on for our HouseMaids organization tips.
Space by Space
The best way to tackle home organization is to go space by space. If this task is daunting or you have a lot of big spaces, you can break it down and do one space at a time. In the most used spaces like the living room, adding a wastebasket or two in key traffic areas (yet somewhat hidden) can help keep tissues and other trash at bay. Keep the flat surfaces, like coffee and end tables, clear from clutter. Create neat stacks and consider bringing in a small set of drawers or even a file cart to catch all the paperwork, coasters, remote controls and anything else you need to keep hidden in the space.
In any room, cords can be a problem. A cable caddy, cable track, zip ties or even twisty ties can keep the cables at least strung together. Ideally the caddy can hold multiple cords and will adhere to a surface to keep the cables out of sight and less of a trip hazard.
If you have kids or pets, you likely have their things strewn about all areas of your home. Creating a “play zone” is a smart way to control the uncontrollable clutter and mess. Corner bookshelves, rolling bins and even storage ottomans are great additions to a play space to help hide and store toys, especially if the space is shared or visible from other rooms. If you can’t control it, at least you can keep it contained!
Everyone has a drawer or two in the kitchen, living room, office and even bathroom that becomes a “catch all” for things that don’t have a designated place. Try to keep those drawers as organized as possible with dividers and small containers. In the kitchen, an old muffin tin works great to separate small items like batteries, paper clips, stamps, etc.
An organized home is a neat and tidy home that is much easier to keep clean. Enlisting a few of these organization tips can make a small space feel big and make any space more welcoming.
