One surefire way to keep the home clean and organized is to keep every area spic-and-span! Working on the different areas one-by-one can save you a lot of effort and won't make you feel overwhelmed.

Here are five easy tips that you can try:

For the utility room

Make use of the vertical space

Maximize a small space by placing a shelving unit against a wall. If you have a high ceiling, build a ledge to store items that you don't use everyday like Christmas decor. Issa Villar

For the bedroom

Keep your night table organized

Display calming items like a table lamp and a small vase filled with fresh flowers. Make sure you keep other essentials like hand creams and balms inside the cabinet. Keep these items in place by adding cutlery organizers inside the drawers. Marina A. Fernandez

For the bathroom

Utilize the space under the sink

Keep cleaning materials and extra supplies inside the bathroom cabinet. If you don't have space to accommodate a cabinet, you may place baskets under the sink. Dagny Madamba

For the closet

Keep regularly used items accessible

One of the things that we do every morning is rummage through the closet to find our favorite pair of jeans or favorite blouse. Save yourself from the stress by placing pieces that you regularly wear such as your go-to dress or corporate attire within eye-level. You may place the things that you do not wear often on the topmost level of your shelf. Bea Perdigon

For the kitchen

Use all available space

If your plates are stacked properly, there will be lots of available space that you can use to accommodate more items inside the cabinets. You may use a shelf helper—as seen in the photo, for the dishes and to elevate pantry items. Issa Villar
