Do you wish you had better organization in your life? If you are anything like most people you spend each day rushing around wishing you just had 2 extra hours. Or how about a little person to troll after you picking up and organizing whatever you just plunk down. Am I right? Being better organized isn’t rocket science but it does take a bit of time initially and then discipline to stay organized afterwards.
Here are 5 smart tips for better organization so that you can save time and space.
Closet organization: Sheet folding 101
After washing bedding, fold it up nicely and put both the fitted and flat sheet inside of the matching pillowcase. This is how to store your linens. Who’d a thunk that this was so easy! I don’t know how many countless minutes (probably hours) lost trying to match up pillowcases to sheets.
This not only saves space but also time. No more searching for that set!
Storage baskets not only look good in your home but they also are a wonderful source for hiding the uglies of the house. Basket your incoming mail, keys and newspapers. You can go one step further and better organize by category and label what is inside for quick, easy access. Just make sure this doesn’t pile up over time. Dispose of any magazines or mail that is not important to save.
A magnetic sheet on the inside of a cabinet door is a fabulous way to have all of your schedules, notes, lists and whatnot, all in one place hidden away. NO MORE clutter on the fridge door! Everyone in the home can consult the better organized command center to find out schedules and events organized throughout the month.
Clothes Closet Organization
Upside down brackets for shelf dividers is a smart way to divide and conquer (pun intended) the closet clutter.
Home Depot or Lowes will have these brackets in varying sizes for you to go to town on organizing all your closets.
Speaking of closets… I am a firm believer that a girl can never have too many shoes, or boots for that matter. That being said, at some point, you are bound to run out of space and searching around for that missing boot is just not time efficient.
Take some pants hangers that you can get at the dollar store and keep your boots organized. You can hang an additional rod low to the floor and not take up valuable closet real estate.
