There are a lot many things in our homes that start crowding the place in little time and if we do not organize them, the clutter gets out of control. Home organization is not costly nor does it need some extra talent from you. To get started choose a holiday and feel relaxed. If you start the work with tense nerves, you may get tired before accomplishing organization of a single space at home.
Another useful way to get started home organization is to organize empty handed in the beginning. Without baskets, bins or boxes start your organizing. Having the bins or boxes in advance is not convenient, because you do not know what size of bins or boxes you need, where you will replace them etc. Divide the places of your home that needs your attention for organizing and fix a time and a day for each place.
Starting Point: Starting your home organization from your kitchen is the best idea but it is not a must. You can start from anywhere you like. Check the cabinets of your kitchen first – if you have started with the kitchen – and take out their contents. Keep the things you are sure you need them and the rest collect them in a corner of your kitchen. Check everything from old plates and spoons to the little decoration pieces, your spice jars to many different equipment; separate the needed items from the unnecessary ones.
Actual Organizing: After the first stage of your home organization, sort out the things that are necessary for you. Set them back in the place they were before you took them out. You can follow any strategy to set them back in the place. Things you need the most keep them in the front row while rarely used items can be placed in the back row. If the things you need are more than the space in your cabinets, get boxes and storing bins according to the place in your kitchen where these can be placed in an eye-soothing manner. For lighter and smaller objects, get a wall pocket or wall organizer and hang it at an empty place on the kitchen wall.
Things You Do Not Need: After having done with your home organizing which may take days or may be a week depending on your home size and amount of clutter, have a look at the things you do not need. There may be a lot of items that you can give away to your friends, relatives or to charity.
Pack the charity items and call a charity organization that can collect the bags from your home. Things needed to be given away to friends and relatives, go to your car trunk for a quick delivery – to avoid cluttering your car trunk. Your home organization strategy is same like your kitchen for the other parts of your house. Do all the work step by step with intervals so that you do not get exhausted and bored.
