One of the things that can make our lives stressful is living in a cluttered home or working on a cluttered office desk that will later send you scrambling for some things that you just can’t find. To help you start living a spacious and refreshing abode, start with having a simple guide to home organization and be free yourself from more stress at home.
– Start with small steps and start now. Before you are overwhelmed with what to do and where to start, start in small steps towards organizing your home. Start by organizing shoes first, or your set of bags, or clearing the counter top in the kitchen, or organizing the bathroom after a bath. However small it may be, it can contribute a lot to being organized day by day.
– Have a place for everything. Of course, one guide to home organization is to have a place for everything in the house. Storage spaces are very important in home organizing and even from the start, consider having storage places in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the living room, the kid’s rooms etc. If you have storage for all the things you intend to keep, it will be a lot easier to put everything in their proper places.
– Set your mood to really like home organizing. Finding a motivation to do the task is also an important part of organizing. Of course, your attitude towards it matters. If you think there is not much enough time to do it, then you have to overcome this thinking as it can lead to procrastination. One tip to set your motivation is to browse some home organization images or articles in magazines or the internet to help you jumpstart your organizing plans. By merely looking at how clean and how pleasing a well-kept and organized home is, you can find great ideas on how you can organize your living space too.
– Make home organizing fun. Beat your thoughts and make home organizing fun and enjoyable. One thing to do it is to find someone who can help you with organizing – be it your partner in life, or your kid or a good friend who loves to put her creative juices on home organizing. It helps also to plan to give yourself a reward after you have done everything with the home organizing.
– Delegate some of the work to the rest of the family. Share and delegate the responsibility to keep your home clutter-free and organized. Teach your kids how they too can start organizing their room – from their toys to their books and everything else. This does not only take loads from you, it will also help teach the kids early on how to make their living spaces clutter-free and clean.
– Learn to let go. The more you cling to something that is not needed anymore, the more it can build up to be a clutter. Of course, you have to let go of dresses that have been sitting in your closet for years and years, and those pair of shoes that only gathers dust, and those broken kitchen utensils and the many things that haven’t been used for ages. Letting go may be difficult but it is one good start in maintaining a clutter-free and stress-free home.
