One of my big goals for this year is to have a place for everything and everything in its place! That means a lot of decluttering has been happening in my home. Organization is something everyone can benefit from whether your house is large or small! I’m focusing on a few key areas to help my home function better.
My husband and I recently updated our laundry/mudroom by adding cabinetry above and between the washer and dryer. We also removed a small shallow closet to install high cabinets, hooks and shoe storage.
Though the space isn’t big, it functions so much better for us. We’ve been working on organizing the cabinet interiors that house cleaning supplies and bulk household items.
Take advantage of the storage opportunities on the insides of cabinet doors. Mountable baskets are perfect for storing items you need to quickly access. I grabbed a couple of these to store cleaning supplies and vacuum attachments.
Bins and baskets make it easy to grab scarfs, hats and gloves before heading out the door.
If space is at a minimum, this option is great hanging coats and bags and even has a few small bins and a shelf!
Our storage room has become one of those spaces where boxes get tossed in without even looking. It’s difficult to find things and hard to walk through!
We are busy going through our belongings and making toss/keep/donate piles. Once we know what we are keeping THEN we will buy the appropriate storage containers. I’m thinking we will do some clear bins so we can see what will be stored.
A label maker will come in handy for labeling bins and can help you organize the rest of house, too!
While it’s not the most glamorous of spaces, organizing our garage is the project I’m looking forward to the most. The plan is to install a large pegboard wall to store all of our tools and project supplies.
Storage walls take full advantage of the vertical space available. Everything is easily visible, accessible, and CLEAN.
Magnetic knife racks are great for holding drill bits, screw drivers and even paint brushes.
I’ve got my work cut out for me! What projects are you working on this year?
