Spring cleaning is a bit overrated! Yes, I said it! However, spring organizing sparks joy. When it comes to organizing, it’s important to be more mindful about the items you have to create order in your home to benefit you, your space and your life! I suggest taking on the “easier” organizing projects to jump-start an overall household organization plan. Tackle these small organizing tasks to set yourself up for spring organizing success!
We all know our closets are a hot spot for items to be stored. Over time, closets can become stacked with clothing and unused items that can begin to cause havoc if not properly organized and stored. Organizing your closet often involves asking yourself the hard question “Is this worth keeping?” to get your project moving along. Focus on keeping items that serve you in more ways than one. Then, figure out how much space you’re willing to dedicate to this item to keep it. You’ll soon find out you don’t need it as much as you thought!
Bathroom drawers sometimes end up as a miscellaneous item spot if you’re not aware of where you’re placing your things. Cluttered bathroom drawers can take away from an area that serves as a space for you to practice self-care, fundamental hygienic function and a place for you to relax and recharge. This momentary space of solitude can soon turn into a place of disorder. Start with removing any items that don’t belong in your bathroom, then begin to navigate through the items that should be there by finding a home for each item to go to after being used. Utilizing clear bins for storage can help you find what you need quickly while keeping everything in its place.
Most cabinets hold more items than you need to keep your kitchen functioning properly. Starting with removing items you no longer use in the kitchen can help aid in cabinet organization. Clean out your cabinets and decide what should stay, then begin to organize like items together to distinguish how much you have of each to find the proper home in your kitchen. Round storage organizers, vertical containers, cabinet dividers and more are beneficial to keeping things in place in the long run.
Kids’ toys can accumulate at a profuse rate leaving your space in an overwhelming state of not knowing where to start. Decluttering is essential to organizing a space designated for your kids. Working with your kids on this project CAN be fun while creating a healthier area for them to spend their time. Consider color-coordinating certain items or even determining which items are for keeping and which ones will be donated. By doing this, you’re creating an environment for them to thrive in while providing an example of how to keep your items orderly. Using organization containers, bins and shelving is a sure way to keep things in order.
Your pantry is another area in your home that can accumulate unused items or expired food
products over time. This leaves your pantry in disarray, keeping you from seeing the foods that need to be used sooner than later with expiration dates. Start with wiping your pantry clean, removing any expired food items and organizing your pantry into categories. Utilizing bins and baskets can keep your pantry in tip-top shape while allowing you to have a designated spot for that food item.
