When it comes to home improvement there are tons of things a home could need to be done. However, one of the most important, which will help with stress reduction and make cleaning easier, is to have an organized home. A new roof isn’t going to deal with your clutter and a second bathroom isn’t going to keep itself tidy.
If you’re tired of the clutter in your home, even if it’s only a minimal amount of clutter, maybe it’s time to start working on being more organized. Here are some things that might help.
Tote bags are a home miracle tool. You can do so many with them, and you can even order some with whatever you want on them (like your last name) so that you know they’re yours (and they’ll cost less than the ones you buy at your favorite stores). What to do with them?
Well, having reusable tote bags saves the need to find a way to store or dispose of all of those plastic grocery bags, and you’ll be killing fewer trees than you would if you got paper bags every time you went to the store. They also work great for carrying your own stuff on vacation, to gatherings, or from one end of the house to the other.
If you store things, whether it’s winter clothing, Christmas decorations, or the kid’s old clothes, it’s better to store them in plastic storage bins than in boxes. These are safer from mice and bugs, and also safer from water damage if stored in a basement. They are also easier (and sturdier) to stack up when putting into storage.
Closets are one of those areas in a home that can really get out of control. Clothing falls off hangers, things get hung up in the wrong spot all the time, and where do you put all those shoes? This is where investing in a closet organizer and the right hangers can come in handy.
If you have clothing that often falls off those plastic hangers you may want to buy hangers that have felt on them. Things will stay hung better. Too many clothes to keep your closet organized? Put all the hangers backward, only turning them the right way after you wear an item. After six months donate anything still hanging on one of those turned around hangers.
Buy a closet organizer to install on your own or hire someone to custom make and implement one for you. This will give you tons of space, from shelving for foldables and shoes, space to hang stuff, and all the way to a top rack to tuck away winter jackets.
