Why Organization Matters

Organization

KITCHEN:

  • Create a designated area for family notes. The kitchen is the best place to make notes of family schedules, meals for the week, and the family shopping list.
  • Those pocket organizers for shoes also work in the pantry. Suspend the sleeve of pockets from the door and store seasonal packets, spices, and even canned goods.
  • An over-the-cabinet basket keeps organization under the sink. This is a good spot for sandwich bags, foil, plastic wraps, etc.
  • Not enough space to prep your meals? If you are contently fighting with your kitchen while making dinner, find a cutting board that fits over top of the sink. You can cut and wash all at the same time, while making extra work space.

BATHROOM:

  • If you have a few extra pieces of wood make a plan for an above-the-door shelf. You can keep guest towels and bathroom supplies here.
  • A rack behind the door is a great way to keep towels hidden and allow them to dry without unwanted smells.
  • Suction cup shelves add storage in the bathroom. If you are tired of kicking the shampoo off the ledge find a self that will support the weight of these items.
  • Is your floor space not big enough for a shelf? Put up shelves and find bins at the dollar store to keep q-tips, cotton balls, and other bathroom necessities at an easy to grab location.

LIVING ROOM:

  • Don’t overload an area with too much décor. Devote two-thirds of your shelf space to books and movies and the rest to knick-knacks.
  • Group similar items together. If you are always hunting for the remotes have a basket to keep everything together.
  • Do you enjoy paging through magazines? If so, you understand they can start to pile up. Make it a habit to discard the previous issue before opening the new one.
