Given our daily deliverables at work and other errands for the house, it's difficult to find the time to clean every nook and cranny at home. Since we need to prioritize cleanliness and orderliness, we should devise a way to be able to keep the house spic-and-span without feeling too exhausted.

The idea would be to take it a step at a time and clean the different areas of the house one by one. Here are a few effective organizing ideas that may just help you:


The bedroom is a personal sanctuary where you can relax after a long day. It is very important that you have a serene space that you'd love to come home to.

Start by removing items that you no longer need or use. Edit your closet and see if there are items that you can donate or recycle. Avoid filling your room with too many pieces! Stick to the basics so you won't have to deal with a cramped room.

Dining Room:

As much as possible, avoid leaving condiments, excess food, and other items on top of the dining table. Store your condiments in the pantry and keep food refrigerated. To add a refreshing touch to the space, you may use fresh flowers and candles as lovely centerpieces.

Since the kitchen is a place of activity, it's very important that you have enough space to be able to work efficiently and move freely. Do not leave utensils and ingredients on the counter. Maximize your kitchen cabinets and drawers by storing your must-haves there. Do not just dump everything inside the cabinets! You may group similar items together to create a balanced look.

Living Room:

Since most of us entertain guests in the living room, it's only important that it's organized, stylish, and comfortable. Keep the coffee table neat by arranging books and decor pieces. Stack them in pyramids—starting from the biggest to the smallest piece. If the space isn't enough, you can place a couple of hardbound books under the table.

Since the bathroom is the smallest and wettest room in the house, it can be the dirtiest, too! Make sure you clean it regularly. Invest in storage bins where you can keep extra supplies and toiletries. Aside from using wall-mounted shelves, you may also opt to have a free standing shelf as extra storage option.
