Why Organization Matters

Is one of your goals for 2017 to get organized? The thought of getting a whole house coordinated can be a little daunting.

We know why organization matters and we are ready to help you make your space as efficient as possible. Look below for simple room-by-room organization instructions.

Why Organization Matters Fairless Hills PA

Living Room:

  • If toys are your issue, use the corner to corral items. Add a small child’s table or bookshelf to keep the toys organized.
  • Add storage under a coffee table for magazines, remotes, and coaster and keep the top of your coffee table clutter free.
  • After flipping through magazines take them directly to the recycling bin. No reason to let old magazines pile up in the corner.
  • Make it a habit to take your shoes off in the bedroom or by the door and take them directly to the closet. Don’t let shoes and coats lay around.

Bedroom:

  • Don’t let clutter build up on your flat surfaces. If you notice your nightstand is accumulating too much clutter, consider downsizing.
  • Add cubbies, boxes, or a storage ottoman at the foot of the bed for a creative way to store belongings out of sight.
  • This is the time to make edits to your wardrobe. Donate anything not worn in 3-6 months.
  • Whether you store your belongings in the basement, attic, or under your bed make sure to clearly label everything.

Kitchen:

  • Utilize that small space next to the fridge or stove with a duel sided shelf on wheels.
  • Create a designated area for family notes. The kitchen is the best place to keep track of family schedules, meals for the week, and the shopping list.
  • Add a pocket organizer to the back of the pantry door to store extra food in the pantry.
  • An over-the-cabinet basket keeps sandwich bags, foil, plastic wraps, etc. organized under the sink.

Office:

  • Get rid of old papers at least once a month to cycle out old bills and junk files.
  • Stop searching for important paperwork, color code your documents for easy finding.
  • Don’t bury office supplies in your drawers, use a drawer divider to keep notepads readily available.
  • At the end of everyday reorganize your space. Put items back in their homes and start the next day refreshed and ready to go!
