One of the most important benefits of organizing your space is reduced STRESS. Simply having a more efficient system to keep track of your papers, appointments, and personal belongings can help minimize stress-influenced conditions. Keeping your house clean and organized can be a pain, and sometimes its just don right hard to make time each day to get stuff done.
For me organization is key, keeping things organized and in a common place can save tons of time and make you feel less stressed about your clutter. The Process of getting organized helps you familiarize yourself with what you currently have, making it a great fresher so you are not buying the same hand soap 15 more times over when you already have 30 under your sink! Here are some things I do at home to help me stay organized.
Use a magazine holder to hold your aluminum foil, zip lock bags, wax paper, and more. Either mount it to your cabinet doors or simply keep it in your cabinet and keep all of the boxes standing up and out of the way!
Under Sink Organization:
I recently found out that I was not utilizing my under sink space by only using the bottom level of the cabinet. Leaving things stacked terribly and the cabinet is left stuffed and hard to find exactly what you need. Then I got organizers for under my sink and my life has been changed, I finished with more room than I started with which is what we are doing this for right?!
FIFO Your Pantry:
First in first out. Every time you go grocery shopping bring all of your old food to the front and your newly bought food to the back, this will help you use up old food you didn’t even know you had!
Use a magnetic board for your fridge, use for a shopping list. This will ensure you buy exactly what you need and help with useless shopping. This one from amazon also has a weekly list to keep you even more organized. I would add magnetic pockets to keep all of your coupons there as well so it a one stop shop before you leave for your grocery trip.
Linen closets always seem to be over flowing and hard to keep organized. Start by storing your sheet inside the matching pillow cases. Use bins to store rags, supplies, or even toiletries. I just bought these bins from amazon to use in my linen closet.
Keep bulk items in stack-able bins. This eliminates bulky boxes and you can see exactly what you are looking for.
Side Of Fridge Storage:
This hack you can either DIY to get the exact size you are looking for. You can find tons of ideas on Pinterest for this. Use the side of your fridge for extra storage, some use this for spices but you can make it work for you and use it for anything you please. This one I found on amazon.
