Another month is coming to a close and we're sure that you've accumulated new pieces for yourself and for the home. What better way to say goodbye to July than by organizing all of your stuff and keeping essentials in place?

Aside from using colors to liven up and decorate your space, you may also use storage essentials in colorful hues to keep the home spic-and-span! Color-coding boxes and folders can help you segregate your items while making it easier for you to find the things you need. Here are storage ideas that you can work on this weekend:

For the storage room

Group the things that you often use and put together seasonal items like Christmas decorations. Use colorful boxes or plastic bins with different colored lids so you can easily identify which is which. As an extra tip, if you have a shelf in the storage room, you may place the seasonal items on the topmost shelf. 

For the home office

File important documents related to the home like contracts and land titles in a red folder. For other personal papers and documents that you may have, you may also keep them separately into different colored folders i.e. keep school papers together and keep work contracts in another.

For the laundry area

Since we're already separating clothes during laundry time, you may take it a notch higher and further save on time by having colored hampers and bins, too! Prepare a plain white bin for the whites then maybe have a colored container for dark colored items.

For the hallway

If you have a storage shelf in the hallway, you may assign one tier to each family member. Create a balanced look by assigning a color to each too. Doing this makes it easier for everyone to identify and find his or her things.

For the bathroom

One common problem seen in bathrooms: toiletries strewn all over the counter and essentials on shelves. If you are sharing one bathroom at home, it would be best to have one colored basket for each member. He or she can keep his or her essentials in there while avoiding clutter in the whole space.
