A: Beginning to organize can seem daunting, but the key is breaking it down into smaller tasks. Start by deciding which room in your home you would like to begin with. Once you have chosen the room, pick one corner, one drawer, one shelf – and just start! Sort  through items within that space and decide what items you would like to keep, donate, or throw away. Create piles. When you have gone through each item and you see what’s left,  you can begin to physically organize the space. Moving furniture around and arranging items in an efficient and visually appealing way can create a calming atmosphere, even on cluttered days. Finally, if you feel overwhelmed or don’t know where to start– enlist a friend or family member for help; it’s always easier with encouragement from a loved one! Or contact a professional organizer!

However, with some creativity and dedication, any space can become a cheerful and organized sanctuary.

A: One of the most useful skills to have as a homeowner is the ability to effectively organize your closet. It’s important to go through your closet every season and take out clothes that you don’t wear or that are no longer in style. Don’t keep clothes you don’t feel FANTASTIC in! Make sure you donate or recycle any clothes and accessories that no longer fit into your wardrobe, as it will make more room for new pieces. Then, group clothes by category and color to make access easier; this will also give your closet a more structured look that’s visually pleasing. Finally, adding smaller accessories like hanging organizers and shoe towers can help with space efficiency and keep items neat and tidy. A simple investment in matching flocked, slimline hangers will make a world of difference both visually and help you gain more rod space.

Then the best way to organize a kitchen is to strategize smart and efficient storage solutions. Utilizing every corner, wall and cupboard to the most of its potential will help you stay tidy and organized. Think about using tiered shelving, magnetic knife strips, and wall-mounted cabinets. Label baskets, bins and drawers with dividers for easy access. Hang pot racks from ceilings or wall mount them over counters to make sure pots, pans, and lids are easy to spot. Most importantly, think vertically – utilizing high shelves will leave more space on the countertops to store other essential items while ensuring that everything is in order.

Keeping your home organized can seem like a daunting task, but with the right routine with sustainable systems in place- it doesn’t have to be!

A: Setting up an organized and efficient home office doesn’t have to be a chore! Start by removing whatever is not serving you anymore. Old files with bank accounts you have closed, cars or property you don’t own anymore, etc, need to go! Clean out your desk!  Then envision what your perfect workspace looks like, then customize the space to include only the necessary items. Choose a comfortable chair and make sure it has proper lumbar support. Position your desk against a wall or in a corner for extra stability or in the command position, diagonally across the entrance of the room, for a more aesthetic feel. Install organizational tools such as bulletin boards, cubbies, and drawers for sorting papers and documents. This will go a long way towards keeping your workspace neat and tidy. Finally, incorporate natural light into the room to create a calming atmosphere conducive to productivity and positivity. By taking the time to design an effective home office setup, you can ensure that your workspace will be both organized and stimulating—every time you step inside!

A: Organization begins with having a plan. Before starting to organize any garage or storage space, first make sure that the items needed for the project are gathered together. Going through each object and determining what should be kept, donated or thrown away helps prevent overcrowding in the space. After discarding anything unnecessary, it’s time to find a home for all remaining items. Grouping all like items together is imperative to  making and keeping  organized systems. Designating areas of the garage or storage space for specific items makes it easy  to keep everything in its place and makes finding something faster when later needed! Labeling shelves and containers is necessary to sustain  organization by allowing easy recognition of which item belongs where. Finally, always remember the golden rule: if you don’t use it, LET IT GO! Properly organizing a garage or storage space can be a game-changer and can help create orderliness, even inside chaos!
