When it comes to keeping a clean house, organization is key. Sometimes though, you can organize in the wrong way. We tend to think if our living and eating spaces are clean, then they’re organized. The unfortunate realization is that being clean doesn’t always mean being organized. To help you stay organized while also keeping your house clean, we’ve put together a list that will improve your house or apartment instantly.
- Shopping First, Organizing Second - When the time finally comes to update your space, too many people forget to ensure they have enough space. Whether it’s not enough space in your dresser, or not enough room for all your furniture, you need to ensure you’ll have enough storage for the items you purchase.
- Out Of Order Containers - Sometimes when you try so hard make sure all of your items are out of sight, you lose track of what you actually use often. Keeping a clean house doesn’t mean just stuffing everything you can into one bin or drawer. Make sure that you are keeping the items you use most near the tops of your bins or drawer. This will help significantly when you’re pressed for time.
- Stuffing Kitchen Cabinets - You finally took the time to do all of the dishes in your house, but now where do you put them? Instead of shoving them all in the cabinets, try organizing them by size and use. There’s no need to put your fine dining plates on top of your everyday ones, as you’ll only have to remove them shortly anyways.
- Message Board Refrigerator - If you think the person you are writing a note to on the fridge will read it every time, you’re sadly mistaken. Humans have an average attention span of around eight seconds, meaning remembering to view your message as they close the door will most likely not happen. Try setting up a message board somewhere else, as the most important thing on most people’s minds when going to the fridge is if that extra slice of pizza is still there.
- Keeping Counters Too Clean - Sometimes putting everything away isn’t the best decision. Obvious things like the toaster or your coffee maker come to mind, but if you’re someone who uses your blender more than once a week, then it’s best to keep it out. Larger appliances might feel like they are not needed every minute of the day, but when you use them often, you’ll save plenty of time not searching for them and finding a place to store them.
