Is your house organized or are your household items out of place or stuffed in drawers?
Do you have rooms full of stacked boxes that are taking up space?
Disorganization and clutter can create unpleasant thoughts and a feeling of overwhelm.
My friend Linda is the most organized and clean person I know.
Her pantry, drawers and cupboards are neat and clean always.
She knows how to declutter and keep things clean, so I asked her if she could please share some easy organizing tips!
She agreed and not only shared a few home organizing habits and tips, but she also shared a couple of travel tips.
Below are her 10 useful tips!
- Be Aware of Your Surroundings
If you see something that’s not in its place, and you are going to the room it came from, carry it with you and put it away.
- A Place for Everything
Have you heard of the saying “A Place for Everything or Everything in it’s Place”? Linda lives by that rule, and truthfully so do I. When you finish using something immediately return it to the proper place so it’ll be there the next time you look for it.
- Clean As You Go
If you are prepping food in the kitchen, or cooking an entire meal, clean pans and dishes as you go. It’s so much easier than waiting until everything is dirty and having to clean a huge mess after your meal.
- Spotless Sink
Many years ago, Linda’s mother told her to never leave anything in the kitchen sink and to keep it looking clean and spotless. She loads the dishwasher or hand washes everything else, then cleans the sink and wipes it down (including faucets) with a paper towel.
- Put Away As You Go
If meals contain different kinds of food, take what you need and immediately put it back in the refrigerator or back into the pantry.
- Lay Out Clothes
Lay out clothes the night before your workday. Linda even adds extra tops to accommodate weather.
- Color Coordination
Color coordinate your clothes. The clothes in Linda’s closet are color coordinated so it’s easy to pull together outfits and saves searching time.
- Craft Room
Her craft room is sorted by different types of mediums such as paints, glues, papers, cloth, napkins, embellishments, brushes. Again, there’s a proper place for everything.
- Travel Bottles
After a vacation, Linda analyzes her travel sized bottles and refills or replaces the contents so she’s ready for her next adventure.
- Travel Storage
Keep all small items in a travel bag and store it with your suitcase, so it’s separated.
Great tips, right?
Incorporating these habits into your day is a helpful way to practice self-care!
Not only is Linda the world’s best organizer, she is a crafting genius and creates beautiful home decor!
