This time of year is always good for the improvement of the state of my house. Things tend to get cluttered and a bit stale over the winter months and as the warm weather starts to peek through, I get inspired and start purging and organizing.
I’m inspired to get really organized this spring. The idea is definitely somewhat daunting. But I’m trying to keep the mindset that I’m going to tackle one project at a time. I started with my pantry last week. It took me a couple of hours but I set aside some time and that’s all I did. It looks wonderful now. I’m going to do my fridge and junk drawers in my kitchen next.
In the midst of all of this, I’ve started shopping for some organization tools that will help me aid in my quest.
1. To start, I’m thinking of adding a Door Organizer to the back inside of my pantry door. They’re pretty affordable, like this one from Storage Dynamics on Amazon. For only $16.82, I’ll be adding a large amount of space to store things like condiments and spices.
2. A couple of years ago, I got some Drawer Organizers. They have been wonderful. Everything comes out of the dishwasher and has a designated spot. It helps cut down on time and mess as everything gets put into the place it belongs without question. I’m thinking of ordering more and OrganizedLiving.com has a wide array of Drawer Organizers available at reasonable prices. I’ve got this Junk Drawer Organizer in my shopping cart as I could certainly use some sort of organization for all the junk!
3. Recently, I had a stager in my house to give me some tips. One of the quick fixes he gave me was for my hall/coat closet. He suggested I get matching bins to put on my top shelve to hold all of our winter accessories. I went out and bought some baskets. I also like these Canvas Sweater Chests for something like this – they zip closed for the months you aren’t using the items inside and they look clean.
4. For your upstairs closet, Shoe Bags are wonderful. Bed Bath and Beyond has this Black Gearbox 10-Shelf Shoe Bag on clearance for $9.99 each.
