bag with toiletries
Always start with categorizing your items!

Organizing bathroom

For some people this will probably be one of the most exciting things to do it their new home:

  1. Categorizing: Use pretty baskets, mason jars, and boxes to contain bathroom clutter and toiletries. Lotions, razors, hair spray, etc. can easily be placed under the counter. As a result, they will be out of sight but easy to reach and use. If your new bathroom is spacious you can add cupboards and stock them with toiletries.
  2. Organize shower/bathtub: Keep bath items in the tub/shower area by hanging an organizer over the showerhead or in the corner of the tub. These are inexpensive and easy to use. We advise buying a couple of soap dispensers, as well as labels for the products. As a result, you can hang them so they are easy to reach. If your tub is bigger, then you can use space around it for some plastic plants or even more toiletries.

Organizing clothes

When it comes to organizing your clothes, this is where you will spend most of your time. That is why, relying on tips should be really helpful to you:

  1. Categorize your clothes: Clothing should be sorted by season and items not being used can be sealed in vacuum bags. They will take up less room and will be safe from mildew and moths. Also, works well for extra comforters, quilts, and blankets also.
  2. Use Hooks: Install hooks or use the door hooks to keep coats, towels, and robes so they are out of the way.

Tips on organizing the rest of your home

  1. Rely on baskets: Use decorative baskets or magazine racks for reading materials. These also are handy to store television remotes, tissues, and other items out of sight. Decorative baskets come in different sizes, shapes, and colors so you can use them for all smaller items. It will make organizing your home super exciting!
  2. Be innovative: Use pants hangers to store boots. Simply clip the top of the boots and hang them in the closet where they are accessible but out of the way. This will provide some extra space for other things, like bags, and will keep all of your shoes organized.
  3. Use Hooks: Install hooks or use the door hooks to keep coats, towels, and robes so they are out of the way.
  4. Shoe Organizers are multifunctional: Consider hanging a shoe organizer over the back of a door and filling it with cosmetics. In addition, you can also store smaller boxes inside for jewelry or perfumes.
  5. Categorize your clothes: Clothing should be sorted by season and items not being used can be sealed in vacuum bags. They will take up less room and will be safe from mildew and moths. Also, works well for extra comforters, quilts, and blankets also.
  6. Think big: Clear bins, totes, and tubs are great for organizing a room, an entire home or a garage. They allow the contents to be easily identified and stacked to conserve space.
  7. Pegboards: Install pegboards in the kitchen, kid’s rooms, or just about anywhere. After that, utilize them so you can hang items.

Organizing kitchen

  1. Create your own board: Use chalkboard paint to create a bulletin board on a door or wall. You can write family activities, daily chores, schedules, and other information on it. This way everyone can see and know what is happening on each day.
  2. Organize your kitchen: Install a tension rod under the kitchen sink and in cabinets. There are no tools required and they are easily removed. Use these to hang cleaning products, set spices on them or to stack plates.
  3. Keep things safe: Install a magnetic rack in the kitchen to hold knives and other sharp utensils. They will be out of the way and children cannot reach them. Use the same idea in the garage
soap dispensers
