Whether you have kids that just won’t clean up, or you yourself are the culprit, keeping things neat and organized at home isn’t an easy feat especially when you barely have time to fix yourself a proper meal. We say allot a time of your day to go through piles of shoes, cluttered clothes, and disarranged tools to fix and store them the way the pros do. Here’s how you can put harmony in your things and your home:
1. INTEGRATE A STORAGE ON A FREE SPACE OF YOUR ROOM
Whether it’s a wall, a cabinet or at the back of the door, you can utilize it to create space-saving storage by installing racks, hooks or shelves.
2. DISCARDIAN’S CLOSET TRICK
Anything you aren’t using for 6 months or more, discard or donate it. Here’s how you can determine whether or not you should discard an item: turn all the hangers in your closet in one way; if you wear something, hang it with the hook on the opposite way. In 6 months, any hanger that’s still facing the original way is something you haven’t worn and should already be given up.
3. LEARN THE ART OF FOLDING
Fold your clothes in a way that they take up less space and you can see them all in one glance. This also helps keep your closet organized since your clothes won’t be flying around when you pull one out.
4. REPURPOSE OLD SHOE BOXES
Use your old shoe boxes as dividers on your drawers or as storage for your accessories and underwear.
5. USE CHAINS OR S-HOOKS
Free your closet space by using chains, s-hooks or curtain rings to hang more than one item in a hanger.
Try color coding your clothes and shoes so you can find a specific item easier, plus this will prevent your light-colored clothes from getting stains from darker ones.
7. USE CURTAIN RODS FOR YOUR SHOES
Create a shoe space on your wall by installing curtain rods and using them as shoe racks.
