Home Organizing Tips

Posted on by Go Minis

Getting your home or apartment organized can be daunting. Fortunately, there are a lot of small changes you can make to improve how you use your space. Read along to find out more about our home organizing tips. 

Declutter flat spaces

Tables, mantles, desks, and nightstands- they all have flat tops that tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. It makes sense. They offer a free space for you to put that stuff you don’t know what to do with or don’t feel like putting away. But having clutter on flat surfaces is a surefire way to create a sense of disorganization in any room. For any papers or mail you leave around, you can always try a simple file box with dividers. This gives you a way to have everything centralized and easily searchable. You’d be surprised how many papers can fit in a small filing box. For things like books, keys, and other miscellaneous items, make sure you have a defined place they should go. Bookshelves, key dishes, and even a good old junk drawer can really help eliminate the visuals of clutter on flat surfaces. 

Organizing drawers in your home

Drawers are a great way to store items in a contained, defined location. But within each drawer, it’s easy to descend into chaos without a plan. Luckily, there are plenty of easy solutions to avoid this. Drawer organizers are a great way to break up the physical space of a drawer into segments for different items. From a simple utensil holder to clear dividers to DIY wooden inserts, the sky’s the limit. You can decide how specific you want to be too. Maybe the junk drawer can just have a few main divisions between writing accessories and other things. Perhaps one of the kitchen drawers needs more order for efficient access while cooking. Whatever your need, organizing a drawer is always a great approach. 

Hide and consolidate storage under your bed

One place you might not think to store items is under your bed. It’s a great spot because it’s out of sight and easy to utilize. With just a few boxes, you can slide and stack a surprising amount right under where you sleep. Even beds with lower heights can usually fit a few boxes. Plus, a benefit of this storage is that it can be simple to access. Adding some wheeled boxes or drawers creates a slidable solution that will be easy to use and hard to see. 

Home organizing and food storage

Storing food can easily devolve into a hastily-compiled assortment of goods on a shelf or in a refrigerator. One great solution is to utilize bins to store food. A few bins on each level of a pantry or in a freezer can create buckets for you to sort items into. Not only does it make storage and finding things easier, but it also uses space more efficiently. You can tightly pack items into each bin and then store the bins side by side for a maximum use of space.
