4 Areas to Compartmentalize During Spring Organization

Americans spent millions of hours looking for items in their homes last year. Fortunately, that does not have to include you. One of the easiest ways to maintain an organized home and to keep track of your goods is to compartmentalize, giving each item a home. Here are a few ways to do just that during your spring organization this year.

In many homes, keys, mail, bags, coats, hats and shoes get shed in the first few minutes a person enters. Set up a shoe rack to keep footwear organized and out of the way. Have plenty of hangers available in a nearby closet so coats, bags and hats can be hung up. For keys and mail, trays can be placed on a small table or other surface near the door so each can be easily deposited into appropriate areas.

2. Closets

Rummaging through a disorganized closet is an easy way to lose time in the morning; increase efficiency by knowing where to find things. Do a complete overhaul by adding in a closet storage system that has a mix of racks, shelves, cubbies and drawers. For small spaces, organize vertically with a multi-shelf hanging bag and vertical cube organizers. Designate a zone for footwear, using shoe racks or bins, allowing each pair to be kept together and easily accessible.


3. Laundry Room

 Foldable Drying Rack

Doing laundry is bad enough; doing it in a messy space makes it even more difficult. Set up separate areas for clean and dirty clothing. The dirty zone should have a laundry hamper or sorter to keep items from piling onto the floor. Set up drying racks and shelves on which to place clean and folded articles in a separate zone to avoid mixing the clothing.

4. Garage

The garage is rarely used for just a vehicle. Tools, seasonal items and recreational toys also often call it home. Avoid scrambling for the necessary gadget by setting up utility racks and placing wrenches, hammers, power tools and all other devices in labeled mesh trays and open containers that can be pulled out when needed. Place seasonal items in hard, weatherproof bins that can be stacked out of the way for long-term storage. These types of bins can also be used to contain balls and other sports equipment, which allow them to be put away easily when not in use.

Compartmentalizing a space allows everything to have a designated home and at Tidy Living, we can help you find exactly what you need. This helps you and the rest of the family know where items can be found and -- perhaps more importantly -- where they can be put away.
