It’s time for spring cleaning! While that maybe doesn’t sound super exciting, having a clean and organized home can do wonders for your mood. In this post, we’re going to hit the areas that tend to get the most disorganized – the kitchen, your wardrobe, and the bathroom. Read on for tons of organization tips and products that will help you sort your stuff.
-Organize your pantry
Most of us can probably use a pantry declutter right about now. Get rid of any expired food, or food you know you won’t eat. Group like items together so you know where to find what you need. If you want to make your pantry more aesthetically pleasing, you can put pantry staples like flour, pasta, and cereal into clear food storage containers.
-Organize your kitchen drawers
Kitchen drawers can get messy if you’re not careful, and sorting through a disorganized drawer while you’re in the middle of cooking is not ideal. Add in drawer dividers to keep spoons and spatulas organized. Use containers to keep your storage bags in order. Create a spice drawer and add easy to read labels so you can grab what you need fast.
-Organize your junk drawer
Your junk drawer doesn’t have to be a mess! Throw away any obvious trash. Put items that belong elsewhere in their proper homes. Corral like items together. Use organizers, like this one for your batteries, to keep from misplacing essentials.
Organize your Wardrobe
Take stock of the items in your closet and donate or sell anything you haven’t worn in over a year. Swap out your hangers. Using velvet hangers will streamline your closet and take up less space than wooden or plastic hangers.
If you only have room to hang one season at a time, store your bulky winter sweater and jackets in under the bed storage boxes.
Use drawer dividers to keep like items together. Try folding t-shirts so they stand upright and are easy to find. Again go through all of your items and get rid of anything you haven’t worn in a while, or don’t see yourself wearing again.
Organize your shoes in a system that works for you. If you tend to take off your shoes as soon as you get home, put a shoe organizer in your entry or coat closet. If you like to keep your shoes with your clothes, add a hanging shoe organizer or shelves to you closet.
Start out by doing a deep clean of your shower. After everything is clean work on organizing your shower products. Throw away anything you don’t use or commit to using it up in the next few weeks. Add a shower organizer if you don’t have a good place to store your shower necessities.
Wash all of your towels, washcloths, and bathroom rugs. Start with everything fresh, and decide on a washing schedule if you don’t already have one.
This is another area to declutter. Get rid of old products, or items you don’t like. Just like you did with your pantry, you’ll want to organize like items together so you can easily find what you need. To maximize space, add stacking drawers in order to store your stuff vertically.
Spring cleaning is such a great way to refresh your life for a new season. Don’t get overwhelmed by this list. Work on one space at a time, and soon your home will be calm and organized.
