Why Organization Matters

Living Room:

  • The first step is to make piles designated to trash, donate, and relocate. This will help move the organization process along.
  • After flipping through magazines take them directly to the recycling bin. Keep them all in one place and when the stack gets to high, it’s time to recycle!
  • Tidy up as you move. If you’re passing from room to room pick up articles as you go.
  • Make a charging station to help keep tangled cords out of sight.


  • Storage under the bed is great spot for out of season clothes. Add wheels to the bottom of the drawers to create an easy access storage area.
  • Adding cubbies, boxes, or a storage ottoman at the foot of the bed is a creative way to store belongings.
  • In your closet, hang with a plan. Keep all pants together and all t-shirts together. Donate anything not worn in the last 3-6 months.
  • If your drawers are the problem area, focus on drawer organizers.You can find them at any local home goods store and remember to measure your drawer height before purchasing a divider.


  • Behind the door towel rack will keep the towels hidden and allow them to dry and keep the smells away.
  • Use stack-able laundry baskets for easy sorting. This makes laundry day simple and fast.
  • Take advantage of the wall space around your sink and toilet. Shelves are a great spot for q-tips, cotton balls, and bathroom necessities.
  • Go through your medicine cabinet every month to get rid of any expired medicines.


  • Regularly recycle old papers. Go through your files at least once a month to cycle out old bills and junk files.
  • Use a drawer divider to keep notepads readily available, instead of being buried by other office supplies.
  • Color code your filing cabinet so you can easily find the documents you need.
  • At the end of everyday reorganize your space. Put items back in their home and start the next day refreshed and ready to go!
