Luxury Lifestyles: 5 Ways to Organize Your Space
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live. Work from home is the new normal. As you spend more time indoors, why don’t you take up a new activity-like organizing your home. An organized and clean space boosts productivity. Organizing areas in your home is one of the best ways to make it more livable and create more space.
Here are some simple yet effective tips to organize your home.
Keep a Discard bag in the Closet
Keep a shopping bag with a handle in front of your closet. Whenever you try a piece of clothing, and it doesn’t fit, is damaged, stained, or out of style, put it in the bag.
If you have taken the piece of clothing off for any other reason than it is dirty or doesn’t go with what you are wearing, it does not deserve a place in your wardrobe. Once the bag is full, consider donating the clothes to your local charity or swapping them with a friend.
Arrange Items According to how Frequently They are Used
Keep the items that you frequently use at eye level. Keep things that you use every day in easily accessible areas. Store items that you need once in a while on high shelves. This arrangement system will save you time and effort.
Eliminate Clutter Havens
Flat surfaces such as the dining room table and kitchen counters tend to accumulate clutter easily. Clear flat surfaces every night before you go to bed. If this seems like an uphill struggle, physically block clutter hot spots (surfaces that have become clutter havens).
For instance, you can place a flower arrangement in the middle of the dining table to prevent people from dumping items.
Get Rid of Items You Don’t Need Before Buying Storage Containers
Before buying storage containers, make a list of things you need and want to keep. Get rid of items you don’t need. Once you have purged, you will get an idea of what you need in containers and shelving.
Store Cables and Cords in Containers
Messy wires pose a hazard. They can make people trip and fall. Use wooden cable organizers to store unsightly cords and cables. To understand what’s what, write each device’s name on a plastic tag and clip it around the relevant cord.
