Cleaning the house can be a real nightmare, especially when things get mixed up in drawers and closets. If you are not careful with the way in which you organize what you own, you can even end up losing precious objects and tools. To avoid this kind of tragedy, use your house wisely.
The Mudroom Storage
Here you can place the toys your kids don’t use anymore, the vacuum cleaner, and any sort of cleaning product, while also storing and organizing beads and other kinds of materials. Plus, this is the right place to try different hobby storage solutions. For instance, you can break the space using a series of shelves, perfect for shoes, tools, and even for Barbie storage boxes (it is definitely time to move the dolls out the room of your teenage daughter, don’t you think)?
The Kitchen Pantry Storage
This is the ideal space if you want to keep your kitchen clean, without having dozens of little vases, boxes, and bags invading your counter. Worst case scenario, you can always use a cupboard, as long as you clean it often. If you do have access to a pantry, however, your life will be much easier. Arm yourself with labeled containers to store flour, legumes, pasta, couscous… and don’t forget to decide where to put the cans and the bottles, the cookies and the sauces. If you decide to cook something special, you won’t have to waste time looking for an ingredient that for some reason is hiding somewhere. Cooking will finally be fun again!
This is much more than a parking space. Using special storage solutions and craft storage boxes, you can easily turn the garage into a safe space for all your tools: screwdrivers, hammers, saw, drills, etc. And what about craft supply storage, old paint, brushes and carton boxes? This place can easily become the solution for all your storage problems. People have come up with wonderful garage storage ideas and you can certainly look around the Internet to find some of them. Also, in case you have problems with pests in your garage, before doing anything else, make sure to do something about it. Get informed and contact the right people: they will be able to help you.
Besides finding the right spaces and places, you must remember that order is a state of mind. If you understand the importance of organizing what you have around the house, you will also realize that this is not something you can forget about: it takes time to learn how to be organized but it really takes only a few minutes to turn every single room into a messy inferno.
And even more important is the fact that the way in which you behave around the house will become an example for your children, who will soon learn to value (or de-value) the importance of keeping their room clean and their things organized. Do you seriously want to discuss with them about a school locker organizer when the house is a mess? Think carefully about it.
