4 Easy And Affordable Organizing Tips

storage unitsWhen it comes to organizing your home, whether it’s the kitchen, the bathroom or your bedroom there is no shortage of great ideas out there, it’s simply a matter of knowing where to start.

We put together this great starter list that will help you get a handle on the clutter of your home. But remember, sometimes storage units are the way to go. I mean, sure you can tidy and organize your home but if you have a lot of items, especially large ones, it might be time to consider paring things down.

The beauty of public storage units is that you can store those larger items instead of giving them away so that you can redecorate your house and rotate items out from time to time. This can really keep your home décor feeling fresh.

Here are 4 great ways to tackle the clutter in your house:

Number ONE: Use jewelry organizers

If you don’t own a jewelry box, or you do and it’s full, consider getting some small drawer inserts. These will help you to cut out the clutter with ease and they can be used to store other small items neatly as well.

Number TWO: Magnetic spice containers

These are an excellent way to help organize the spices in your kitchen. There is nothing worse than a cupboard filled with a jumble of spice jars and bags. What a mess! These are cheap and because they are magnetized they stay put right where you want them.

Number THREE: Cord clips

If there is one thing that makes a room look messy it’s a whole bunch of cords hanging all over the place. By using cord clips or even simple Velcro tape you can bind them together for a cleaner, neater look without damaging anything at all.

Number FOUR: Colored bins

The reason I say colored bins rather than just regular white or clear ones is that this allows you to organize in a more simplistic fashion. This way you will be able to put certain items in their own colored bin so when it comes time to find something you know just which bin to look in. For example, you can have red bins for the kitchen, blue ones for the bathroom items and so on and so on.

See? Organizing your home doesn’t have to be a painful process and there are ways to make finding the items you put away with ease. All you have to do is start and I hope these four tips help you do just that.
