Do you have spaces that are getting too messy for your liking? Or maybe you need to get clutter under control before a summertime celebration or milestone event hosted in your home. Here are a few things you can do to limit the chaos.
A Place for Everything
The best way to tame clutter is to avoid it in the first place. When planning to organize your home, make sure you have a place for everything and put everything back in its place. You can sort things with whatever method works for you, but make sure when you’re done working with something, it returns to its designated spot.
To further facilitate the taming of clutter, choose closed storage. Use bins with lids, cabinets with doors, and furniture with drawers to keep items neatly organized. You can maintain the storage area within the closed space with additional containers and organizers.
Keep, Toss, Donate
A vital step in reducing clutter is determining what stays and what goes. Make three piles when cleaning out any space: keep, toss and donate. Consider things you use regularly and make sure they make their way into the keep pile. If you haven’t used an item in over a year, it may no longer be necessary, so consider letting it go.
Make Organizing Fun
The problem with organizing is that it’s rarely fun. But it doesn’t have to be a slog. You can make organizing fun for yourself or your family by creating rituals. You can use color coding or other fun tools to make the experience visually stimulating.
