Jumpstart Your Day: 5 Quick Organizing Hacks that You Can Do Today
We revisited some of our featured homes online and picked up a couple of handy tips
Some of us may think that organizing the home is difficult. We can't seem to find the time to deal with clutter, there are so many things to sort, and we don't know how and where to start.
In order to keep your space spic-and-span, you need to learn to work with what you already have. Check your space: do you have shelves? Is there a space under the table? Do you have old pieces waiting to be repurposed? Let the spaces and ideas below guide and inspire you:
Maximize your shelves at home by using the topmost tier for decor pieces. You can even put your precious collections on display. Avoid clutter by choosing only your favorites.
To make the most of the space, you can even use it to organize your books and favorite magazines.
Spotted an old filing cabinet in your storage room? Turn it into a functional piece. Dr. Rommel Caballes turned an antique filing cabinet to store his shoes. You can do the same or you may also use it to organize books, magazines, and other home items.
Can't seem to fit everything in your kitchen? No need to fret! Make use of the available vertical space by hanging baskets where you can keep pantry staples and supplies. If you have the budget and the time, you can craft a similar wooden panel complete with wire baskets meant for cooking ingredients.
Aside from wooden panels, you can also install wall-mounted shelves where you can keep jars and other condiments.
Look around your house. See that space under the table or chair? Turn it into an organizing station. Place your essentials inside baskets and boxes then place these under your furniture. Doing this doesn't just make the most of the available space, it also conceals your storage buddies—avoiding eyesores.
Always having a hard time finding your favorite necklace? Are you often dealing with tangled bracelets? Never again! You can craft a chic accessory holder using a small corkboard and a couple of old knobs and handles. Click here for the complete guide.
If you don't want to buy a corkboard, you can work with old boxes and frames. Use pushpins to create holes for your earrings. You can also attach hooks where you can hang necklaces and bracelets. Once done, you can put your finished organizer on top of your dresser to serve as decor.
