There are plenty of tips and tricks to get your home more perfectly organized and de-cluttered. You can add function and style to any room by designing creative storage solutions to provide a place for everything and de-clutter your home. Here are some quick tips to try to get more organized: Don’t take on too much at once. Break your end goal of being organized into smaller goals with achievable measurements for each. Reward yourself when you have reached each small goal! Remember, what works for one person/business does not work for all. We all have unique needs. A professional organizer is trained to work with you to define and implement a workable system. Don’t rush out to buy containers before you know what you will need. Choose the best container for the task. For example, sturdy containers with lids can be much more effective than pretty wicker baskets that can’t stack, etc. Develop a system that meets your needs. For example, use color folders or labels to file blocks of common papers, green for money, red for health, yellow for children, etc. If you have the budget, purchase a good filing cabinet as the less expensive units may not have the longevity to handle the weight and wear & tear of heavy papers. Look for one that can handle letter and/or legal size papers and that has easy glide drawers. Aim to set up your electronic storage filing system with the same structure as your paper filing system, no sense trying to remember two different structures.
Other ideas such as built-in shelves keep one organized with collections of colorful books to be used as decorative elements. Closets can be used to create an office nook by removing the bi-fold doors. Colorful containers can provide decoration on shelves and may also help to reduce clutter from building up on your office desk or kitchen table.
