Organizing your home can be a great way to add a little order to your life. If you have struggled to get moving on your long to-do list, we have two great ideas to get you started.

The Kitchen

You’ve heard it said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is likely the space where most of the “living” occurs in your home. From preparing food to gathering for meals to sitting around the table chatting or playing games, the kitchen area is a natural gathering place that can easily become cluttered. From piles of mail and paper to dishes on the counter, the kitchen can easily get out of control quickly. One easy step for kitchen organization is to utilize cabinets and drawer space to clear your counters. If you need a place for schoolwork, bills and other paperwork, dedicate a drawer especially for that purpose, or even better take pictures of important documents with your phone and save the images to a special file and then you can get rid of the actual paper. 

The Master Bedroom

When it’s time to retire to your bedroom for the night it can feel overwhelming if your room is a big mess. Start seeing your bedroom as your scared space and only bring things into your room that belong there. Add some shoe organizers to the back of your door so you can organize random items like keys, wallets, sunglasses, receipts, etc. This simple step can keep your dresser and nightstands clear of clutter. If you have a lot of pieces of jewelry or multiple watches, invest in velvet jewelry organizer trays that slip easily into your nightstand or bathroom drawers. Not only will your keepsakes be safe and protected but they won’t be littering your counter space making things look disorganized.

These two rooms are excellent places to start your organizing projects around your home. Start small and before you know it you’ll have the clean and organized home you’ve always wanted.
