Organization Inspiration for a Tidier Home
A tidy home can bring a sense of calm and order to our lives, but sometimes it can be a challenge to stay organized. If you’re struggling to keep your home in order, this organization inspiration is for you.
When I was a child, I watched my grandmother search all day for things she misplaced. A Libra, she loved the finer things in life — and lots of them. Have you heard of the rule, “When you bring something in, toss something out?” NaNa didn’t get the memo.
Knowing she had a proclivity to misplace things, I took it upon myself to organize NaNa’s home from top to bottom. I’d pare down her tchotchkes and box half of them up. I promised to swap them out the next time I visited. But, by my next visit, all the tchotchkes would be back on full display. And the cycle resumed.
“Organization isn’t about perfection. It’s about efficiency. And reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money, and improving your quality of life.”
ORGANIZATION INSPIRATION – 5 STEPS TO A TIDIER HOME
Step 1. Start small. Don’t try to tackle your entire home at once. Instead, focus on one room or area at a time. This will make the task feel more manageable and you’ll be able to see progress more quickly.
Step 2. Go clutter-free. Peruse your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer use or need. Donate or sell items that are in good condition, and recycle or dispose of anything that can’t be reused.
Step 3. Use storage solutions. Invest in baskets to organize the keepers. This reduces clutter and makes it easier to find what you need when you need it.
Step 4. Create a designated spot for everything. Assign a specific place for each item in your home. This will help you know where to put things away and make it easier to find when you need them.
Step 5. Develop a habit. Tidying up should be a daily habit, not an annual event. Set aside a few minutes each day to put things away to keep your home neat and organized.
