Here are some paperwork organization ideas.
Organize the small spaces. Use drawer dividers to keep items neat and organized so you can find things quickly and efficiently.
Make A Place For Everything In Your Home
Make “everything has its place and a place for everything!” your new mantra. If everything in your home has a home then it is less likely to get left out as clutter. Not only will it help your home be clutter-free but it will reduce stress while saving you lots of time and effort.
Make Organization Everyones Job
Let everyone in your home know where things belong. Label boxes and other containers, put organization systems in easy to reach spots. A great example is a shoe basket near the front door.
Keep Organization Simple
Put items that are used every day in places where you can reach without bending, needing a step ladder or stooping. Keep them in the area of the home where they are used.
Have a special spot for items that don’t belong to you or the family. For example a special shelf for library books, or a place near the front door for borrowed items you need to return to friends.
Be Ready To Leave
Organize your front entrance to have everything you need to leave the home. Put up hooks for your keys, a place for your bag and purse, a coat rack or a command center for all the kid’s belongings ( like school bags, shoes etc).
Organize The Junk Drawer
Declutter junk draws and shelves for good! Throw out things you don’t need, and make an organization system for the items you still need. Make a date in your diary to tidy up this spot every week. If you keep on top of areas like this you can declutter in only 5 minutes.
Think carefully about anything new you bring into your home. Do you really love it or need it? Also, consider removing one or two items from your home for every new item you bring in.
Declutter realistically. Not many of us can live a minimalist lifestyle. Instead of trying to eliminate all clutter completely create organization systems to keep clutter neat. For example with children, it would be impossible to not have toys around the home. Instead of making it a chore to store these in closed cupboards, create playroom storage with baskets or boxes without lids that the children can be responsible for. It may not be perfect but it is realistic.
Step It Up
If you have stairs never go up or down them empty-handed. A brilliant home organization hack is to have a basket at the top and bottom of the stairs that you can place things in that need to be put away.
Have a folder organization system in your home. From important paperwork like insurance papers to a special folder for coupons. Have a place for paperwork you need to action like bills, and for things like invitations.
Keep Up With The Trash
Throw away things you don’t need as you come across them or when you have a spare 10 minutes. We have a list of 100 items that you can easily declutter.
