Tips on how to keep one's house neat and tidy
« on: October 26, 2016, 09:27:30 PM »

Friends raved at how neat and tidy her house was. Mom shares her top 12 tips

It’s no secret that keeping your home clean is possibly one of the most impossible tasks ever – especially when you share that space with other people. But keeping your home organized can actually be surprisingly easy! Once you put some of the space-saving, mess-deterring solutions in place, you might just find your home a happier, cleaner place.

Let’s break it down.


1. Color coding is your friend.


It turns out that your living room color scheme is more than just for artistic purposes – it’s also incredibly useful when it comes to organization. Get some matching bins of different colors and decide what goes where, based on color.

2. Drawer organizers are everything you need and more.

If you have several drawers full of junk that you can’t figure out if you actually use it or not, you’re not alone. Drawer compartments keep everything exactly where they need to be when you need them. Plus, organizing your drawers will help you think about what you actually realistically use and need in your household.

3. Try building your own PVC shoe rack!

I know that this one takes DIY to the extreme, but it’s actually easier than you’re think. Literally, all you need are some cut plastic pipes and a tacky/hot glue. Pro-tip: Paint your new shoe rack to disguise the PVC!

4. Can’t stress the importance of chore charts enough.

The biggest part of being organized is staying organized. If you never put anything back in its place, you’ll never get used to your new system. Cleaning regularly can help get you into the habit of picking up after yourself and tidying up little by little.

5. Get your own plastic bag dispenser.


Nothing bothers me more than a huge wad of plastic bags shoved in a cabinet. While it’s a great idea to reuse grocery bags, don’t let them eat up valuable space in your home. Give them their own dispenser, and you’ll be saving yourself a future headache.

6. Magnets are the best tool in your bathroom arsenal.

Bobby pins, nail clippers, tweezers – the list of lost bathroom items goes on. These little guys are easy to misplace and take forever to find. Instead of rummaging through your stuff, try installing a bar magnet in your bathroom. Trust me, you will never lose anything again.

7. Maximize your storage options.

There’s space to store household items everywhere, whether it’s under your bed or in your garage. Make sure to find these hidden spots and create their own little storage unit. Your home will thank you.

8. Get hooked on key hooks!

Keys are probably the single most difficult item to find when you need them. Getting used to hanging your keys up right when you get home will save you trouble in the long run, especially if you’re trying to leave in a hurry.

9. Don’t leave that space behind your doors empty.

Vertical storage is quite possibly the most undervalued of  household storage. Just adding a hanging bath caddy to your bathroom door can wind up making things so much neater for you and your home.

10. Clear jars are everything you need to keep your kitchen looking perfect.

If you find tbat your pantry is getting a little cramped, try moving things like sugar, flour, and coffee into clear containers that can be stored out on your countertops. Not only will these work as cool decoration for your home, but they also have a great function too!

11. Cork boards can also radically change your jewelry organization game.

If you’re tired of untangling all of your necklaces, you might want to look into getting a cork board to replace your jewelry box. Not only does this put all of you amazing blind out on display for you to admire, but it also keeps everything perfectly tangle-free.

12. Make your own laundry sorting station.


I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have accidentally washed one of my whites with a whole load of my dark clothes. To avoid this headache, try setting up a little sorting station next to your washer and dryer. Every time you go to put away dirty clothes, get in the habit of automatically sorting them.
