Home Organization Ideas that Work

One of the most challenging tasks of a working or full-time mom is keeping the house organized despite all the unending to-do lists. As soon-to-be a mom of two, I need to make sure that my kids are well taken care of, and at the same time, I maintain a tidy and clutter-free living space for them.

Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to perfect this. You just have to consider that there are effective home organization ideas that can really help us cope with the pressure, and lessen our burden when it comes to tidying up our space. 

I hope this list of home organization ideas can help us get through the day, week, or month. Again, no pressure. Being kind to yourself and what you can do in this tough yet exciting part of motherhood is what matters most.

  1. Declutter and purge: Start by going through each room and getting rid of items you no longer need or use. Donate, sell, or discard things that are taking up unnecessary space.

  2. Categorize and sort: Assign specific categories to your belongings and group similar items together. For example, group all kitchen utensils, electronics, or clothing items in separate areas.

  3. Utilize storage solutions: Invest in storage containers, bins, baskets, and shelves to keep items organized and easily accessible. Clear containers are especially useful for visually identifying stored items.

  4. Labeling: Labeling containers, shelves, and drawers can save time and make it easier to find what you need. Use labels or sticky notes to indicate the contents of each storage area.

  5. Create a designated space for everything: Assign a specific spot for each item in your home. This helps reduce clutter and ensures that things are returned to their proper places after use.

  6. Use vertical space: Maximize vertical storage by installing shelves, hooks, or hanging organizers on walls. This can free up valuable floor or countertop space.

  7. Drawer dividers and organizers: Use drawer dividers to separate and organize small items like socks, underwear, office supplies, or cutlery. This prevents them from getting mixed up and makes it easier to find what you need.

  8. Utilize unused spaces: Make use of under-bed storage, the back of doors, or the inside of cabinet doors to store items that are not frequently used.

  9. Digital organization: Organize digital files on your computer or cloud storage. Create folders with clear names and organize files into relevant categories to make them easier to find.

  10. Maintain a regular cleaning and organizing routine: Set aside dedicated time each week or month to declutter and organize. This prevents clutter from accumulating and makes the process more manageable.

Remember, the key to a successful home organization is consistency. Make sure everyone in your household is aware of the organization system and is committed to maintaining it.
