Tips To Get Organized

How do you get organized and stay on top of the day to day clutter? Here are a few tips to help you get started. They have helped me in my struggle to wrangle all the kids toys and life mess that just happens.

  • Make a to do list…and stick to it. I know that may be hard, I don’t always stick to mine, but it definitely helps.
  • Everything should have a home and at the end of the day that is where all the things should be. It won’t happen everyday, so give yourself some grace.
  • Don’t let things pile up. That will make the task of organizing worse and you will never get it done.
  • Break large tasks down into bite size tasks that you can do in 20 minutes or less.
  • Don’t be afraid to purge. Get rid of the stuff you don’t need or want. What are you keeping it for? Trust me when I tell you that you will be less stressed if you get rid of the stuff you don’t need.

Now that we have organizing out of the way. Let’s talk storage solutions, which is why you’re here in the first place.

These DIY home storage project ideas will help you with your organizing efforts and they will look great in your home!

They are beginner friendly DIY’s that can be made in a weekend, or while your little one naps. Let’s face it, it’s hard do anything when the ones that make all the mess are up and in destruction mode.
