A start to the new year may mean the start of your home organization.  It’s easy to let clutter pile up in your home, and sometimes it seems like there’s not quite enough space to store everything. However, with some clever repurposing or reorganization, you can take control of your clutter and create a more efficient living space. Here are some tips to get you started on better organizing your home.

Start stacking: If your coffee table or desk seems like mess, stack your magazines and books. Then, place flowers, candles, or another prominent curio on top of the stack. You’ve suddenly reorganized and created an attractive tabletop display.

Bring in some baskets: A shelving unit with room for small baskets is great for organizing similar items and reducing clutter. Label your baskets (try chalk!) and it’ll be easy to find specific things when you need them.  Clear baskets also work well to keep items divided. 

Try trays: Have all those self-care items overtaken your bathroom counter? Find a shallow tray, and then use it to contain your bottles, lotions, and other bathroom products.  These are great to use on kitchen islands too!

Still seem to have too much clutter?  Maybe those items really aren’t clutter, they just don’t have a place to go.  If you find yourself with too many things and not enough space, maybe it’s time to upgrade your home.  Perhaps you have the opposite problem - too much wasted space in your home. Then perhaps you need to get a smaller house to accommodate your current needs.  Call me today and we can get started with a free home evaluation and set up search alerts.
