When it comes to keeping a home tidy and clean, a certain amount of organization is required. From bins and labels to color coding and drawer dividers, the sky is the limit. Here are a few think-outside-the-box organization ideas.
Organize Your Electronics
Few things can create more chaos than tangled cords or scattered electronic gadgets. Start by separating cords and devices into piles. By sorting a cord or power divider into a bin, and surge protectors and other random items into a separate bin, you can then organize them and place them into an accessible location based on usage. Labeling cords that are in use is also a great way to ensure you can find what you need quickly.
Utilize Wall Space
Once you run out of wall space horizontally, you still have options. Utilizing the wall space vertically can be a game-changer and is one of the best ways to keep yourself organized. Hanging hooks on the walls to hang jewelry, scarves or keys on can free up space in drawers for other things, and can make these items easier to locate. Shoe organizers hung over a door is also a great way to free up closet space and they can be used to organize any number of items.
Divide Objects By Color
Dividing objects by color is a tried and true organizational method that neat freaks swear by. It helps to create a clean look and can help you find an item in a rush. Closets are commonly organized by color, but this method can be used for just about anything: toys, shoes, cleaning supplies, pantry items, not to mention using color coded tabs to sort important documents. The color method is one of the most successful ways to organize your home.
Keeping your home neat and efficient doesn’t have to be difficult. You just need to find a good organizational system and stick to it.
