Today we are concluding our Spring Fling Series. Now that you've cleaned and de-cluttered your home we thought it was time to share with your our secrets to organizing and keeping all the clutter at bay. One thing we should mention before we delve too deep into this post is- the way that you organize your home is very personal and taste-specific. What works for some won't work for others, but we've picked up some clever tips over the last few years, and we think these will work for almost anybody.
BINS + BOXES
Storage bins should be your new best friend. They are the perfect way to catch clutter and hide it all in one presentable package. Hide media like DVDs or CDs in your living room- kids crafting supplies and toys in the playroom- or corral all of your extra chargers and cords in the office.
Trays are the work horses of home accessories. They aren't just for serving hors d'oeuvres. Placing a tray on a coffee table gives your remotes and magazines a home- collect soaps, jars, and perfumes on a bathroom vanity tray- or place one on your bedside table to hold reading glasses and books.
Storing your linens can be a pain if you have multiple sets in the same colors and sizes. A trick we love is storing your sheet set inside one of the pillowcases. An added bonus, it keeps the fitted sheet looking neat and tidy as well.
Place dividers in your junk drawers. Whether you make them out of shoeboxes and containers lying around your home or splurge for a custom fit from a container store- we promise it will save you time digging through the bottom of an endless pile of clutter.
Closets are so much more manageable when they only have in-season clothes in them. This goes for all of your coat closets too. Once you've de-cluttered your closets consider storing winter coats, boots and heavy sweaters until next season. If you want to go a step farther purchasing matching hangers will leave your closet feeling much more pulled together for just a few dollars.
