How can I organize my home

I recommend if you are going to start organizing your home then you do it one chunk at a time do not try and organize the whole house in a day!

You will get demotivated and actually end up not doing much at all.

Tackle one room at a time.

Once you have organized each room then the challenge begins because you want to keep it organized by continuing a daily and weekly declutter otherwise there is the risk it gets out of control again.

How can I organize without spending money?

There are lots of ways to organize things without spending money. One of the easiest ways is to simply declutter.

I love doing this especially with my wardrobe. I can make more room for new clothes ( joking) and give away clothes that I no longer wear.

How to organize small spaces like a closet

Firstly assess what you have and unfortunately the easiest way to do that is to empty your closet onto a sheet on the floor or on the bed.

Next decide what you wear most often keep these to one side. Anything that is left figure out when you last wore it can you make any outfits from what is left? Are you really going to wear what is left.

That just in case things are never going to happen so if you are keeping it just in case my advice is to declutter. 

I recently gave two large garbage bags of items away to the thrift shop. I was ruthless and do you know what I don’t miss a thing!

Once you have decided what you are going to donate, split your clothes into summer and winter.

Storage bags or vacuum storage bags are great to store your out of season items till you need them in places like under the bed.

Now can you use baskets on shelves to keep things tidy? Or use shelf dividers?

How about using this DIY hack if you have lots of small stuff to organize. Organize your scarves with this nifty idea. 


You could also use this for ties as well.
