Use everyday items
We're used to buying new bins and plastic containers for the closet and kitchen. However, there are tons of common household items that we can use to keep the home spotless! Open your kitchen cabinets and see which items you can use. Old jars can be repurposed into catchalls and accessory organizers. Resealable plastic bags can be used as organizers, too!
Conduct a garage sale
Once you’ve cleaned out your closet, the next step would be to segregate the items. Which ones are you keeping, donating, and selling? You can actually hold a garage sale of items that are still in good condition but you won't be able to use anymore. Schedule a day for your sale and group the items accordingly. Consider having P10 and P20 bins to attract customers.

Create an inventory
Write down all of the things that you have per room, doing so will make it easier for you to prioritize so you get to spend your money wisely. Splurge on items that you really need and avoid buying pieces that would only end up in the storage room.
Group items according to use
It will be easier for you to find the essentials you need if your items are grouped properly. Doing this can help you visually keep an eye on your things. This further helps you shop for needed supplies since you can easily track which items are needed and keeps you from buying excess goods and supplies.
