Declutter Your Life with 41 of the Best Home Organization Tips

by January 17 @ 2:15 pm

Organization can feel somewhat seasonal. We’re thinking about it in January at the start of the new year and again when we tackle spring cleaning. But the reality is, getting organized (and staying that way) is a year-round job.

This month, make it a point to update your organizational systems before the chaos of the holiday descends upon us. Here are some clever tips for organizing any space and a roundup of our favorite organization articles.

How to organize any space from a junk drawer to your linen closet

1. Empty it out. Take everything out of the space and only put it back in if it belongs there and serves a purpose. This forces you to go through every last little paperclip and pillowcase.

2. Sort items. Make four piles. Items to toss, items to donate, items that belong elsewhere, and items that are going back in.

3. Group like items. Take all of the items you’re keeping and group like items together.

4. Separate grouped items. Separation is the key to organization. Use drawer organizers or recycle found objects like ice cube trays or shoeboxes. In a closet you can use fabric bins or shelf dividers.
