A neat, decluttered, and organized space can do you more good than you can probably imagine. It will help you feel more in control over your life, reduce your stress and anxiety levels, calm you, clear your mind, and save your time.
You don’t have to spend a fortune over hiring a consultant to help you downsize your belongings and organize your home. You can neaten up your space on your own by following these fool-proof organization tips.
Part Ways With Everything You Don’t Need
Organizing your belongings would be a lot easier if you only hold on to the things you actually need. Dig into your closet and drawers and take out everything you have owned since ages but rarely used. Donate some of these items to help someone in need.
Deep cleaning is an activity that will relax you, boost your mood, and declutter your mind. It will also save you time when you are looking for something in your closet, since you won’t have to rummage through piles and piles of unnecessary things.
Keep Everything in Its Place
Everything you own should have a designated place in your house. It will make your life easier because every time you need something, you won’t have to rack your brain trying to remember where you kept it last. When you return things to their space after use, you won’t pile them in one corner and cause a heap of mess. Your belongings will stay organized, and your space will stay clean.
Store Your Smaller Suitcases in Larger Ones
Suitcases can be difficult to store because of how bulky they are. No matter how annoying it is to find a place for them, you can’t simply do away with them because you need them every time you travel.
A helpful little organization tip is to store your smaller suitcases and bags inside bigger ones. This is a great way to utilize all the empty space inside them and have them take little space. Inside the smaller suitcases you can keep items you only need while taking a trip, such as your neck pillow and a spare blanket. This will make packing for your next trip easier.
Bedsheets Can Be Kept in Their Pillowcases
Talking about bulky items, bedsheets can also be a menace to store. To make sure they take less space, and your bedding sets stay together, you can follow this easy trick. Roll up your bedsheet neatly, and keep it inside a matching pillowcase, along with the second pillowcase. Roll up this bundle and stack it away in your closet. No mis-matched bed sets anymore!
It isn’t possible to talk about organization hacks without mentioning the tidiness guru, Marie Kondo. One of her tips is to roll your clothing in order to store them, instead of messily folding them up.
After rolling your clothing, line them up in your dresser drawers vertically. Because of this, all your clothing items will be visible, and you won’t mess up your drawer every time you’re trying to find something.
Invest in Clear Plastic Storage Boxes
Clear storage boxes have many benefits. They can easily store all the items you own that you don’t have enough space for in your closets and drawers. Since they are clear, you can easily see what each box holds. They are a great way to add some extra storage space in your closets. They can also be stored under your bed, or neatly stacked away on top of each other in a corner. Your belongings will also stay protected from dust, and any other potential damage. Organization has never been this easy!
Follow these tips to keep your life in order, and your focus intact. Granted they will take some effort, but this effort will go a long way in keeping your house organized. What are you waiting for? Get organizing now!
