- Use long clear bins to store items on deep shelves.
- Store like items together for easy retrieval.
- Pull older items to the front and place the newer items int he back to reduce waste due to spoilage.
I have mentioned some of these in the past, but it is a good, quick read. Check out #6...we do this at least twice a day ;-) Each task, around the house takes minimal time to complete. Set a goal for yourself. Maybe for one week take ten minutes once per day and return out of place belongings to their home. After a week take a minute to see your progress... Maybe the usual pile of newspapers in nonexistent and the mountain of shoes has disappeared? Celebrate your small victories and get EVERYONE in the house involved! Let us know how it goes for you ;-) http://www.womansday.com/home/organizing/14-tried-true-organizing-tips-102044?cid=obinsite
I am excited to announce that I have fulfilled the requirements and earned the designation of Home Staging Expert (HSE) from Center Stage Homes, Inc. I will continue my education and practice to work towards a Master Home Staging Expert designation. I look forward to the future and the possibility of teaching others what I have learned and love to do!
Try storing a cleaner (we suggest vinegar and water solution) and towels in each bathroom and under the kitchen sink. Then when you have an extra minute you can clean that area rather than trying to manage cleaning the whole home at once. It is really amazing what you can do with just five minutes!
Add some essential oils or lemon joyce to soften the vinegar aroma ;-)
And best of all, it is safe for the whole family!
Sock monster got you down?!? Consider using safety pins for your socks. They can be left on the ankle all day and then used to pin the socks together when you take them off and throw them in the wash. No more missing socks ;-)
Anyone have other ideas for keeping those pairs together?
