I hate to admit it but I tend to be disorganized. I'm not sure if its the amount of paper my kids bring home from school or my scattered mind. Sometimes my house looks like a bomb went off. This year I'm making a decision to be more organized in the amount of stuff that is in our house.
Here are some tips that I will be using to put my family and I on the right track.
Find the right storage solutions:
There are tons of storage options available. Make sure that the solution is optimum for your space. Racor storage solutions can plan out your space online before you purchase.
Purge a day at a time:
Multiple piles of paper, books or just about anything can become overwhelming. If you commit to getting rid of a few items a day, you can tackle a large task. For example, don't let catalogs, fliers or other unimportant mail pile up on your desk. Throw the items away immediately and you can eliminate clutter.
Commit to donating unused items.
When you look into the closet, do you have many unworn clothes or the wrong size clothes? Make a commitment to give those clothes to charity. I have two ways of determining which items are donated. For kids clothes, I keep a bag by their laundry hamper. When I see that the clothes don't fit, I put them in the bag. One wash and it is ready to donate. The other option is to rotate hangers. After you were an item you change how the hanger is hung in your closet. After a month if the piece of clothing isn't worn, it goes to charity.
Don't buy it if you don't need it:
Why bring extra clutter into your house? Of course, many of us love a good deal, but is having the extra items in your house worth it? Besides spending money, you might be purchasing items that could go unused. Best advice is to think twice before you buy.
