Spring is here, and there is much to be done. Most people do an annual Spring cleaning, in which they deep clean their homes and get rid of things they don’t need or want. When doing so, it’s the perfect time to work on organizing the things you have. Organization is important for many reasons, especially for cleanliness. Get organized, stay organized. Check out my three basic tips for organization.
Tip 1: ROYGBIV
Using the rainbow as a guide is great when organizing clothing. One of the easiest ways to organize your closet/dresser is to color code your clothing. This really helps you to see what you have, and it makes it easier to pick out outfits. Maximize your efficiency when getting ready in the mornings! If you don’t have a range of colors then organize your clothing from lightest to darkest and vice versa.
Tip 2: ABCs
This standard organization guide is perhaps the most used method among many people. Organize alphabetically and/or numerically. When organizing bookcases, DVDs, video games, etc., it makes sense to place items alphabetically. You will always know where to find your favorite book, game, etc. based on its title. This is also great for those who are not great at organizing because it’s very simple and hassle free. Don’t forget to add some fancy bookends to spice up this standard organization method.
Tip 3: Baskets, Bins, and Buckets
Using baskets, bins, and buckets can be really helpful when organizing items in your bathroom, kitchen drawers, or under your bed. Sometimes, items that are just left freestanding can look really messy or cluttered, even when lined up. You’ve seen how your silverware looks crazy, or the shoes under your bed look like a tornado hit when not placed into a bin. If you stick these items into a basket or holder of some sort you can easily find what you are looking for, and your space looks cleaner.
These organization tips are very simple, yet effective. If you have some organization tips then share in the comments below! I am always looking for ways to stay organized.
