You’re busy. You have things to do, and you’re not always as organized as you’d like to be. You don’t have time for this! But here’s the thing: Organizing your home doesn’t have to be hard. It can actually become easy once you start taking baby steps toward getting your space under control. The key is knowing what works best for your lifestyle and knowing how much time you really want (or need!) to devote toward organizing your home each week. In this guide, I’ll share with you my best tips and advice for making organization simple—and fun!
Make a good first impression and encourage neatness by placing a colorful tree, pole, or wall rack in the entryway.
The entryway is where you and your guests meet, and this is why it’s important to make a good first impression. You can do this by placing a colorful tree or wall rack in the entryway so everything has its place. This way, your guests will always know where their coats are when they arrive and where their shoes go after they take them off.
In addition to making a good first impression on people entering your home, keeping things organized will also help you save time finding things later on. After all, nothing is more frustrating than losing one’s keys or forgetting what bag holds which item of clothing while at work!
Create a list of everything you’d like to organize in your home.

- Decide how much time you want to spend on the project, and what you specifically want to achieve.
- Decide how much money you are willing to spend on the project
Don’t just toss items into storage bins.
Before you toss an item into your storage containers, ask yourself: “Is this item important enough to warrant a place in my home?” If the answer is no, then get rid of it. If the answer is yes, then decide where in your home this item belongs and put it there.
Organization isn’t just about storing things; it’s also about making sure they’re easy to find when you need them. This can be as simple as keeping all of your baking supplies on one shelf or keeping all of your pantry items together so that they’re easier for everyone to access.
If you have kids who live at home and are old enough, consider giving them their own storage containers for their toys and clothes so that they can keep their rooms organized without having to clutter up yours with boxes and bins full of stuff from their childhoods (or adulthoods).
Bring the outside in with plants.
Plants are great for home decorating because they can help you relax and keep your space looking clean, even if it’s not. You don’t have to have a green thumb or a lot of money to make your house feel more like home. With just a little bit of skill and some basic knowledge about plants, you can create an organic oasis in your living room that will help you unwind after a long day at work.
First things first: get yourself some plants! The best way to do this is by visiting local garden centers where there will be plenty of options at various price points (and sizes). Some good starter plants include spider plant, jade plant, bamboo palm and cactus varieties such as prickly pear cactus. Next up? Care instructions! It’s important that homeowners follow these carefully so that their new friends stay happy—and healthy—for years to come.
Incorporate open shelving into your design to add visual interest and keep frequently used items nearby.
Open shelving is a great way to display items that you’d like to see on display. It’s also a great storage solution for those space-saving needs, as it can be used in any room of the house! Unlike built-in shelves, open shelves are free standing and won’t take up much floor space. If you want your kitchen cabinets to look more like an art gallery than a pantry, then open shelving is for you!
All sizes of objects can be displayed this way—from small items like books or vases right up to larger ones like boots or lamps. The biggest advantage of using open shelving is that it allows you much more flexibility in terms of what goes where and how things are displayed than traditional cabinetry does.
Store gadgets like tablets and laptops on your desk rather than put them away every time you finish using them.
Store gadgets on your desk rather than put them away every time you finish using them. This way, they’ll always be nearby for easy access. Don’t put them in a drawer or cabinet when you aren’t using them—it takes up too much space! And don’t leave them on a table or countertop either; if someone else needs to use the desk, you don’t want to have to move all of your things just so they can get their work done too. The worst thing you can do is place these items on the floor; if an object falls off of your desk onto the ground and breaks, there are no guarantees that it will be replaced by insurance companies (and even if it were covered by insurance, most people wouldn’t bother with replacing something as small as a laptop screen).
Use clear plastic boxes so that you can quickly see what’s inside without having to take everything out.
Using clear plastic boxes can help you organize the contents of your home more efficiently.
Plastic boxes are inexpensive, easy to find and purchase, lightweight, waterproof and easy to clean. They’re also great for storing things like food or medicine that you want to keep safe from pests and moisture damage.
They can be stacked up against each other when not in use so they take up less space than traditional cardboard containers do when empty on your shelves or in cabinets.
Create useable space under your bed by installing shelves (or even filing cabinets!).
Under-bed storage is a great place to store anything you don’t use often, or items you’d rather keep out of sight. If you’re looking for a good way to keep those extra blankets, pillows and sheets handy, consider installing shelves under your bed. You can also install filing cabinets, which can be used as storage for shoes and boots, as well as other household items that need a home outside the closet or pantry area where they are currently kept.
Be brave! Don’t be afraid to try new things.
Don’t be afraid to try new things! Sometimes your home will look like a disaster, but you can always make changes. If it doesn’t work out, don’t worry about it — just give yourself time to regroup and try something else. You’ll never know what works best for you unless you’re willing to experiment.
It also helps if you have a little courage and confidence in yourself! If something isn’t working for you anymore, change it! Don’t be afraid of making mistakes or looking silly: that’s part of being human! Your family probably loves the person who loves them enough not to care what anyone else thinks — so why should they care about anything else?
It’s not impossible to have an organized home–here are tricks to help you get started!
If you’re one of many who feel like they have a cluttered home, there’s no need to despair. There are several tricks that can help you get started on getting things in order.
- Start with the big stuff. If organizing is something that scares or intimidates you, start small by picking an area of your home and working on it for 5 minutes each day until it’s as organized as it should be. This will give you practice before tackling larger projects and help build up your confidence level so that when the time comes for more intensive cleaning and organizing efforts, they won’t seem nearly as daunting!
- Don’t be afraid to try new things! It may seem like some organizers are too expensive for what their function is–but don’t write them off just yet! Take some time researching how much other people love these products before deciding whether or not they’re right for your situation (or budget).
Whether you’re trying to get organized for the first time, or have been at it for years and are looking for new tricks, these tips will help you find the right balance between neatness and comfort. Having a clean home is more than just having nice things in your house–it’s about building a space that’s good for your mind, body, and soul. And if we’ve learned anything from our journey through organization tips today: it’s that this isn’t something we can do alone! In order to be successful in our quest for organization (and sanity), we need people who support us along the way–so don’t forget about those friends who want to try something new too!
