5 Ways To Keep Your Home Organized and Neat Without Breaking the Bank!

No matter how big or small your house is, there is always a place for everything. We need to sort everything inside our house because who doesn’t love a clean and organized home, right? Would you rather spend your time in a room with so much mess like random objects, clothes, and other items? 

Some of us got a lot of things that we don’t need, yet it is hard to let them go. If you are a busy person who wants everything in place, then we have good news for you! We have prepared five ways to store things to prove that there is a place for everything:

There is always space somewhere. 

There will always be a secret place where you can store some of the things you rarely use or don’t even use. For example, the space under your bed or the extra space under your stairs. You can even purchase an underbed storage containers so you can keep it organized down there. You can put your shoes, bed sheets, and other seasonal items conveniently.

These secret spaces can be your extra new closet. Having this can make a big difference and also can save you money because you don’t need to buy a new closet for your clothes or other things. 

Folding things properly in the closet. 

Most of us have a problem with our closet since we tend to buy or hoard clothes every year, and some of us still keep our old clothes. Some have sentimental value, or we use them seasonally.

Storing clothes should not look like a laundry basket in a closet, but we should fold it compactly to clear up space and make it look clean and tidy. Know what is the best fold to do, depending on your clothes and closet. You can check out the Marie Kondo style of storing clothes. Organizing which clothes you usually use and not can also maintain the cleanliness of your closet. Organize it by category, and you would not have to panicky find clothes.

Repurpose or recycle other items. 

Instead of keeping items that are rarely used or throwing it away, you can repurpose them as your storage for other stuff. For example, turn your old dresser drawers into a bookshelf, or you can even turn your old dresser into a bench too! You can even use and design your cereal boxes and turn them into file folders. Turn old cans into pencil holders. 

You will not only save money or give your old things a new purpose, but you are also helping the environment. Do not let your items go to waste since there are tons you can do with your items. You only need to be creative.

Invest in multi-function furniture. 

If you are lazy about DIY-ing some of your items, then buy one (or maybe more) where it can serve as multi-functional. A good example is the ottoman chairs. These are great solutions for storing items that also doubles as a chair and a footrest. You can also have a multi-functional wall cabinet that can turn into a table that you can use as a workstation, study, make-up, or where you eat. When the table is not in use, you can fold it and serve its purpose as your cabinet to store things.

Don’t hide the things you use every day. 

As for the things you use every day, your watch, your cosmetics, your jewelry, just put them or store them where you can always see or reach them. The reason is that it can consume time if you hide them because you use them every day. 

If you also place them in different places, the tendency is you will waste your time trying to find them, and you might think you misplace or even lose them. You can assign a designated spot or bin for all the stuff you use daily. 

Use the corners! 

All the corners of a room can be of good use. You can put wall shelves on the corners of your room; you can place decorations or pictures of your family there, the vases that you love, or even your notebooks or books that you need or read every day. Do not waste every space that could be of use because instead of it being empty. You can even lean your things aesthetically, like maybe a mirror, guitar, and more, that will give so much more personality in that awkward corner. You can also install some hanging shelves on the corners to store some of your knick-knacks. 

In a nutshell 

We should be responsible when it comes to maintaining our homes. We should always keep it clean and organized. Your home also reflects you as a person living it, so a clean and organized home also says a lot about your personality. Maximize those spaces and the stuff that you already have. After all, going or staying in a clean house will give you comfort and peace of mind.
