With January typically comes my need to organize my entire house. I want everything to have a place and everything in it’s place. That’s truly the only way to stay organized isn’t it? So how does everything have a place? Here are 11 tips to help you organize your house. These should get you off to a good start for an organized New Year!
I’m on a mission to become more of a minimalist this year and that is my other big tip on keeping your home organized. The LESS you have, the easier it is to keep it clean and organized. Just try it! Take your cupboard that you store your cups and glasses in. Remove half of what is in there. Now the cupboard can close and the cups down come crashing down when you open it right? Guess what? You still have enough cups to get you through the day and it’s so much easier to keep the cupboard organized. Now apply that to the rest of your house! We really need a lot less than we think we do. Now on to the organizing tips!
