Quick tips & tricks to hack and master everyday life! (cont.)
In partnership with NAPO Austin, our friends at Crampt Storage on Demand have prepared the Ultimate Room-by-Room Guide of Home Organization Hacks.
Did you catch the previous tips for keeping a tidy Entry Way, Kitchen, Living Room, and Dining Room?
If you want a good night’s sleep, one of the best favors you can do for yourself is to tidy up your bedroom. The clean space invites tranquility and a calm mind, helping you to drift right into a restful repose. A cluttered room, on the other hand, can cause increased anxiety, leading to a restless night. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary — not a source of stress.
One easy way to declutter your bedroom is by creating under-the-bed storage. If your bed doesn’t already sit on a platform with drawers, you can generate storage space with rolling or sliding storage bins for keeping seasonal clothing or extra bed linens.
Make your bed every day. While you’re not necessarily putting something away, you are putting it back in its place — and that can be part of a very healthy organizational habit. It may even help motivate you to get the rest of the room back in order.
If you don’t have a jewelry box or stand, consider using a jewelry drawer. You can insert simple drawer organizers or boxes. This will make it easier to find your favorite earrings or watch.
A small trash bin is a must. It will give you a much better place to put tissues, sticky notes and other scraps rather than the floor.
Is your room overrun by shoes? Place stackable shoe racks under hanging clothes in your walk-in closet.
Don’t forget about your closet. While your bedroom may finally be under control, your closet is a completely separate space that may not get the attention it needs. Decide whether it needs a complete reorganization or just a quick decluttering session.
- If it needs a total overhaul, start by going through your closet and deciding what will stay and what will go.
- Reorganize the items that are staying by grouping similar items together.
- If you have items that you wear more often than others, place those in the most easily accessible spot.
Be sure to keep a hamper in your room, closet or attached bathroom, to help prevent used clothes from cluttering the floor.
Don't forget the guest and kids' rooms!
When it comes to your children’s or grandchildren’s rooms, you may have to organize a whole different kind of disaster. The combination of clothes and toys alone can lead to chaos underfoot.
The kids’ rooms will be tidy in no time and will be easier to keep that way.
- If you don’t have a separate room for toys and other activities, create a cubby system with labeled baskets for different items.
- Create clothing storage that’s easy for little ones to reach. That way they’ll be able to help keep their own space tidy by putting clothes away when they’re done with them.
- Use the backs of doors to your advantage. You can use Command or 3M hooks to hold totes of stuffed animals or other belongings, keeping them off of the floor and out of the way.
