Are you like me who always struggle to make a place for things in order to keep your home clutter-free? Yes, I know, after a hard day’s work, it always feels nice to come back to a home, where everything is in proper place and you don’t have to struggle to remember where you kept it or to find out a stuff. However, I admit it’s not an easy task; at the same time, it’s not impossible too.
Check out the following tips. I think it’ll help you to organize your house.
Remove excess things
Many a times, we complain about less amount of storage space. However, we fail to realize that our storage spaces are actually full of items we no longer require. So, look into the drawers and closets for unused items. The items, which you’ve not used for past 2 years, you can throw them unless they’re valuable possessions.
Use a rack organizer
Often it becomes difficult to store the papers. To store important documents, you should put them in files or baskets and keep them in a secured place. But there are some other papers like pamphlets, discount coupons, etc., which you can store in a postcard rack organizer.
Label jars in the kitchen
You can save time if you label your jars in the kitchen. You can just look into the jars and pull out the one you require. It will also help you while cooking as sometimes, you suddenly remember to put a certain condiment into the dish you’re preparing.
Designate separate place for items in closet
If you and your spouse/partner share one walk-in wardrobe, then designate different areas to store your individual stuff. Make separate places for your trousers, shirts, dresses, etc. You can store your belts and other knick-knacks in baskets and label them if you’re storing up in the topmost shelf of your closet. You can get many storage ideas if you browse through the internet or in the lifestyle shops.
Make storage places in your bathrooms
You can store a number of things in your bathroom and your kids’ bathrooms as well. A quick and easy way is to buy some baskets. They are really good to store your kids’ small items. In your bathroom, make shelves or cupboards to store your extra towels and toiletries. However, it’s better not to store make-up things as they might get spoilt due to the moisture.
Develop certain habits
Once you’ve designated places for each of your stuff, try to keep those stuff in their places. Try to place your daily-use items in their designated homes. It’s better to keep a place where you can store items, which you can’t put it back to their actual places, every time. However, do not keep on adding junk more than a week. Take out sometime in every 7 days and put back your items in their actual places. This way, not only it’ll be easier for you to keep your home clutter-free, but also you know exactly where to search for an item.
A useful tip – If you have large drawers or shelves in cupboards and you often forget what stuff you’ve stored in them, then write-down in sticky-pads what you’re storing. It is better to write down things you’re storing in a single drawer or a single shelf. This way, even if you have to look for an item, you can just take out things from just one drawer, instead of frantically searching for it in the whole cupboard.
Along with keeping your home clutter-free, these tips will also help you save a lot of time.
