Home Organizing Ideas
Are your possessions creating chaos in your home?
Piles on floors, cluttered tabletops, books and toys everywhere are symptoms of a disorganized home. The more disordered your home, the longer it takes to find things, put away and tidy. If you’d like to find a home for everything you own here are some basic home organizing ideas that work in every room
Plan small organizing projects
If you’re pressed for time or don’t know where to start, focus on small spaces. Areas like linen closets, medicine cabinets, kitchen, desk and clothing drawers are quick to organize. Declutter all the doubles you find and limit what you put on top of surfaces.
Organize similar things together
If there was only one guideline to bring order to your home this would be it. By thinking in categories and organizing similar things together every item falls into place.This key works wonders in closets, kitchens, home offices, bathrooms and kids spaces. By grouping things together:
- You see how much you have- makes it easy to declutter
- You see your things and find them easily
- You put similar things in containers
- You create homes for what you own
This might even inspire you to go on a decluttering spree.
Empty some storage spaces
Do you have any storage spaces you’d like to empty. Re-think the stuff you never use. Let go of things you save just in case. The more storage space you clear out, the more room you have to reorganize and rearrange things you use.

Use organizers but use them sparingly. Don’t fall into the over organizing trap where you have ten labeled boxes when one would do. Useful organizers are: hooks on walls, plastic boxes in the garage, baskets for kids toys and small containers for grocery and small items. If you do box items up make sure you label the contents, so easy to find, easy to put away.
