Happy Wednesday friends!
We are halfway through the week- we can do this! I actually have Friday off and am heading on a mini vacation for my college roommate Megan's bachelorette party! I will be sure to share all the details when I get back from my weekend away :)
Today I'm sharing a few organization game changers that are super quick and I have implemented in our home. They help keep things looking clean and organized for the most part which helps me keep my sanity.
First up: baskets
I love baskets. They are the best for hiding items away you want to keep in a room but keep out of sight. See these six baskets in my tv stand? One of them holds all of our medicine but you would never know that unless you were super nosey and peeked inside. Tim also has an absurd amount of video games and the last thing I want is them on display- those neon green cases aren't exactly pretty. Two of the baskets house those and electronics that I like to keep tucked away. (And when I say electronics I mean away...)
The floor of my closet is a great place for stockpiling toilet paper and paper towels. I like to grab these when there is a sale and I have a coupon so I've started putting them on the floor of my closet so they aren't out on display but are easy to grab if we need them.
I love bins almost as much as I love baskets and my linen closet is full of them! I keep bins for lotion, shower gel, laundry products, soaps, and even Tim gets his own bin for his products. I think they are great way to corral items so they don't look loose and disorganized.
Some other ways I've organized in my apartment?
- Buying an entryway stand- this has helped immensely with Tim putting away his hats and coats. The seat lifts up so I can store winter stuff inside too!
- Decluttering! Always my biggest tip: GET RID OF WHAT YOU DON'T NEED! I love to take a big bag of items to donate and find myself constantly decluttering.
- Organize by type- don't just group all your beauty products into one cupboard- get them organized by type so you know exactly what you have! It will help prevent from buying duplicates.
What are some of your organization game changers?
