While it might seem like a hassle to keep the home straight, we’ve found some great ways for you to get rid of the clutter and organize your home to bring out its best side!
So here are a few ways to quickly organize your house and satisfy your inner neat freak!
The first thing that you need to do is a thorough investigation of the house and identify the problem areas. Pick a room and write down the problems of each room. Then continue this activity in all of the rooms of your house. This way when you get to work, you have a plan in front of you.
Then… take a step back and think about why these messes are always here. Do you have a habit of leaving that jacket on the chair after work every day? Do your kids play with their toys at certain times of the day and never pick up?
And when you find the solution, then find a way to break these bad habits so that your home can stay clean and tidy.
Organize every day!
If you’re leaving everything for the weekend, then there’s gonna be a whole lot of work and very little time after your weekend plans. So the first solution to your messy house is to do it right then.
Don’t leave the walls empty.
By this, I don’t mean, go out and buy some paintings. What I really mean is, buy a floating shelf for the books that keep lying on your coffee table. Or buy some cute canvas bins and hang them from the wall with the use of a hook and put the things that usually have no home in these bins.
First in, first out.
When you buy new stuff, no matter what it is, look for something you don’t need anymore and get rid of it. This way your home is never getting cluttered.
Have an outbox.
Put any outgoing items, (such as store returns, keys, wallet, packages, etc.) on an outbox (a small table by the door). Whatever you think you may need when you go out can be placed on this outbox. You can even keep your shoes or purse on one of the shelves of this table.
A caddy for everything.
Put everything in containers and caddies. This way everything looks nice and gives your house a neat look. And having these in the bedroom and kitchen is a must for anyone who’s looking to get rid of their messes. And if you have a hard time letting go of things, then this is probably one of the best things for you.
Make it a habit to clean your house and keep implementing your solutions! You’ll have an incredibly clean home in no time!
