7 Organization Hacks That Will Make You A Master

Keeping your home organised can be a challenge at times. We often feel overwhelmed, and it may be hard to keep everything tidy. Here are 7 Organization Hacks That Will Make You An Organization Master!

1 - One In, One Out Rule

Storage is finite. Making sure that you donate one item every time you acquire a new one is an excellent way to always make sure you’re making the most of everything you got.
This rule works out for every room in your house. Kitchen, bedroom, storage, bathroom!
If you have your cupboards organised in your kitchen, you can visualise how many of each item you have, so you can use them before you buy more. That way, you will never have to throw expired goods away again! That is also true for those appliances that you never use!
In your wardrobe, bought a new piece of clothing? Donate one! The same goes for bedding and other stuff!

1st Organization Hack to become a master in organization - One In One Out

A fantastic trick with your clothes is to get into the habit of hanging your clothes with the hanger oriented one way. If you organise your wardrobe every 6 months, face all hangers the other way. Within those 6 months, hang the hanger the opposite way every time you use something. That way, when it’s time to clean again, you’ll know precisely what was worn and what hasn’t. Then it’s just donating everything that you did not use.

Keeping your house clean means knowing what you have and what you use, and, more importantly, what you don’t use!

Here are some links for The Salvation Army and Salvos Stores, where you can donate your used items in good condition for a good cause!

You can also make a quick buck selling items you don’t use to Cash Converters (https://www.cashconverters.com.au/)!

2 - Hang Pots and Pans

Pots and pans are usually big and clunky. We all have those pots that are rarely used because they are kept under a whole pile of other pots. Hanging your pots makes them accessible and frees precious space in your cupboards. This makes all the pots easy to access, and it will make for a unique decoration piece!

3 - Use Transparent Canisters and Containers

Have a hard time finding what you’re looking for? Make sure to use clear containers so you can see what’s inside them even before opening!

A neat trick is to label your containers as well. You don’t exactly need to have a label maker for that; you can cut out the packages and then just stick tape it to the container itself!

It’s a good practice is to add the date you are filling that container up, so you know for how long that product has been sitting on your shelves!

4 - Add a Cord-Keeper to Appliances

If you want to be an organization master, this nifty trick can save a ton of space on your counters. Not only do loose cords take a lot of space and look awful, but they also prevent you from organising items on your countertops. By tying them up, everything looks way more presentable. It allows you to place items in strategic spots to enhance the visuals of the whole surface.

5 - Make Hidden Spaces Look Pretty

Cupboards can be a nightmare, right? It’s so easy to just throw things and close the door, never to look inside. Until we need something… Then it starts. Having to take everything out to find that one thing you’re looking for. Then we just shove everything back in there and pretend everything is ok.

What if there was a better way? Well, there is!

By keeping cupboards and drawers organised, not only it will be easier to find items you’re looking for, but also it will inspire you to keep them organised. This is especially handy in the kitchen. It is easy for us to forget about items, only to realise they expired long ago. If this happened to you at least once, remember that this means losing money for nothing, and even worst, wasting good food.

6 - Verticalise Storage

We’re used to storing things horizontally, piling them up as a standard. That’s never a good idea since we cannot see past the first or second item. Adding to that, searching for things, we need to take them all out (or make a mess). By verticalising the way we store things, we maximise space and have easy access to all items. A good idea to start is to verticalise your freezer!

7 - Free Up Surface Space!

One of the best tips to make your home look organised is to have free space on all surfaces. However, that does not mean that you can’t have anything on your countertops. We can simulate the effect of free space by placing all the items against the back end of the countertop. As a bonus, you can organise the items by size, colour and labels. As a result, you will have enough exposed surface to make it look neat and tidy.
