Everyone wants to live in an organized home. Organizing your home gives you more space to work with and also improves on the aesthetics. However, a lot of people still struggle to maintain an organized home especially when kids are involved. The following are 5 great home organization hacks you can try:
- Set clothes upright in drawers
Many people make the mistake of stacking their clothes on top of each other in their drawers. This means that to find that t-shirt you really like, you will need to go through all the other clothes that are stacked on top of it. This creates a mess every morning when you are getting ready. Setting your clothes upright vertically (like how you would file paper in a cabinet) is the perfect way to organize clothes because you can see them all at once and pick any without leaving a mess.
- Using Old Candle Holders
After a candle has burned out, you can repurpose the glass container it was in instead of getting rid of it. But first, you need to get rid of the wax that has accumulated as the candle burned out. To do this, you will need to freeze the glass to make it easy to scrape off all the wax using a knife. After the wax is off just clean the glass and use it to store pens, toothbrushes, bobby pins, and other smaller craft items.
- Organize Jewelry
It is important to keep your jewelry well organized to ensure it doesn’t get lost and also for easier selection. One way to do that is by using a jewelry board. Put a piece of fabric over a corkboard and hang your jewelry on it with push pins. You can also use a vintage rake to hang your necklaces to avoid stubborn knots and tangles.
- Magazine File Holders as storage
Magazine file holders are inexpensive and very useful, particularly in the kitchen. You can use magazine file holders to store produce, grocery bags, water bottles, tin foil, canned food, and many other kitchen supplies. Magazine file holders provide extra storage space and can be used to organize your cabinets to make it easier to find things.
- Shoe organizers for anything and everything
Shoe organizers are great because they can hang conveniently at the back of any door and hold a lot of stuff in a tight space. You can keep anything you want in the pockets in an organized manner; from cleaning products to make up, just slip it into a pocket.
