The Beauty of Having a Place for Everything

a Place for Everything

Having a place for everything and being able to locate everything you need without spending hours looking for them can make your life a lot easier. You may not realize it yet but being organized and knowing where to find your stuff does not only help you save time and money, it can also reduce your stress levels and prepare you for an emergency.

Needless to say, creating a system of order can bring tons of benefits into your life. So, how do you banish disorganization and start living a more organized life? Here are some ideas that you may find useful.

Plan it out

Map out each room in your house that needs organizing. Envision how you would like to use the room and then design it to maximize available space.

Create drop zones

Place boxes for incoming and outgoing mail near the front door, and use a dresser valet so you can just grab your wallet, keys, and phone in the morning.

Designate a central command center

Put important documents and frequently used information (phone numbers and addresses, including all school emergency contacts, bills, receipts, taxes, manuals and warranties for appliances, etc.) in designated binders and keep them in a central location.

Use underutilized spaces

Create a custom bulletin board on your kitchen wall for posting notes, schedules and shopping lists, hang pots and pans on the ceiling, and attach undershelves in a cabinet to utilize an otherwise wasted vertical space. You can also put a shelf over your bathroom door to store rarely used items, store bins on the garage ceiling, and use pegboards to organize your tools, craft supplies, and/or sports gear.

Organize your clothes and accessories

Create a system for organizing your drawers, remove everything you haven’t worn in a year, and buy a shoe organizer.

Remember, having a place for everything can make your life easier, so say ‘no’ to clutter and start organizing your home and your life today.
