Tips for Better Home Organisation

Neat and Organized Closet

A disorganised house is not just hard to live in – it is also incredibly discouraging to come home to, not to mention embarrassing to show your friends. Fortunately, cleaning up and organising your home is something that can be done anytime.

Following are some tips that should be helpful.

Categorise Items and Label Containers for Easy Access

Take the kitchen for example or your box of assorted things. Chances are you open up bottles of spices before figuring out exactly what is inside. You can skip this problem by getting a label maker in NZ from providers such as Unimax.

With this, you can recycle non-transparent containers and use them for various items.

Have a Landing Pad Near the Door

Have you ever spent precious minutes looking for the car keys, house keys, your, phone, chargers, and other what not? Have a landing pad, place it near the door so that you can easily throw the keys in when you come home, and pick them up before you leave.

A landing pad can be something as simple as a bowl placed near the door that is easily visible.

Get Rid of Some of Your Stuff for Better Organisation

Space is a premium when it comes to organising your home. If you just have too much stuff, then you will always have a problem with clutter and chaos. Start getting rid of some items using the 365-day test. If you have not used an item within the last 365 days, then you should probably get rid of it.

Have an Everything Goes Box

There are days when you are just too busy to bring the glasses back all the way to the kitchen. So what do you do? You have a box that is located in the centre of the house where you can dump everything for future inspection.

Think of it as your lost-and-found box. At the end of the week, make a commitment of sorting out the box and emptying it.

Of course, those are just some tips you can follow for home organisation. Make sure everyone else at home knows your organisation rules so that they can follow too.
