It is common for people to become bored with their homes and want to make a change. That change can be moving, or even just remodeling or renovating. An even easier change to make is simply organizing accumulated clutter. Clutter is overwhelming and many people choose to ignore it or run away from it, but by using simple organization techniques the clutter can disappear and a whole new vibe will be felt through the home. When many people hear the word “organize,” they panic. Organization can be just as big of a job as remodeling a home depending on how big of an unorganized mess there is. Do not panic, though. While organizing is a big and terrifying project, it is well worth the time and effort and it can definitely save some money!
Successful Organizing Techniques
There are several ways to make life easier through organization, and many of these ways are so easy that they seem silly! Much of organization is just finding a way to contain messes. According to Real Simple, Lazy Susans are a great way to contain messes by keeping them in one easy to clean space. Do not be afraid to use wall space to mount pegs to hang things like potholders and aprons. Not only does this technique give easy access to those supplies, it also opens up cabinet and drawer space for other items. The kitchen is often the hardest room to organize, but if done right, you will be surprised how easy the task of organizing your kitchen actually can be. Real Simple suggests starting by placing kitchen items in specific places based upon frequency of use. Place items that are regularly used in easy-to-reach drawers and cabinets, and put your holiday china in the higher cabinets that do not need to be accessed on a daily basis. Group similar items together so they are easy to find. One of the scariest places in the kitchen is the Tupperware drawer…in order to avoid a nightmare, file the Tupperware drawer by stacking containers and lids by size and keeping them together so they are not difficult to find. Do not be afraid to invest in little organizational tools such as lid holders. These items may seem silly, but you will quickly find that they are definitely not a waste of money when you do not have to cram lids in a drawer or cupboard. Cabinet organizers are another great way to keep cabinets from becoming cluttered messes. It is amazing how organized one can feel by simply placing baskets on shelves or in drawers to keep items divided.
There are many ways to organize a home and make it feel like a whole new place. One will never regret taking the time and spending a little money in order to organize their home. So before you consider knocking down walls or abandoning ship all together, see what a little organization can do for you!
