Get super organized and cut down on clutter by starting a bin or basket organizing system. Simply put, you just use bins to organize your pantry, linen closet, etc. The bins help everything look neat and stay stored away.
Another great tip is to make sure that everything has a place that it belongs. If your shoes, for example, just wonder, then they’re going to cause clutter. So, make sure that everything has a place and that it finds its way there.
Buy or build an entryway organizer that keeps the mess from coming inside. Make sure it can store bags, backpacks, coats, shoes, and whatever else you and your family bring into the home.
One thing that makes a home look cluttered is when storage space is out in the open. So, invest in cloths or something that can hide those storage spaces. For example, get a sink skirt to hide the storage below the sink!
When you’re finished using something, make sure you put it back right away! Get rid of a clutter corner or drawer where things just tend to sit until they’re cared for.
Paper clutter is one of the biggest messes in a home. So, follow these simple rules: scan, save, shred, recycle. For anything that you don’t need a physical copy of, scan it, save it electronically, shred (if necessary), and then recycle. Super easy!
Make a command center that keeps all of the family’s business and schedules all in one spot. There are tons of types to make, so choose one you love and go for it!
Make these fantastic step baskets that will help cut down clutter. Pretty much, you have a basket with each family member’s name on it, and when something needs to go up or downstairs, just put it in there. When you go up or down the stairs, just take the bucket with you. Super easy idea!
Cords and wires cause lots of clutter and eyesore. So, to fix that, use a shoe box to store a surge protector and then cut holes for the wires to slide out of when in need.
Invest in an over-the-door organizer that you can use for pretty much anything. You can store cleaning supplies, craft supplies, pantry items, or anything else in it without the storage being out in the open!
