It probably speaks to my attention difficulties but I am constantly organizing and then reorganizing and then coming up with a new organizational system. I have a lot of experience with organizational systems. I probably should be participating in the how to put things back where they belong linky. In no particular order, here are my favorite three tips.
- Purchase matching boxes: I love putting everything into a plastic crate. I know I’ve spent more time and money getting new boxes or systems as things didn’t fit the way I wanted them too. Guess what. I should’ve just spent the money up front to get what I really wanted (or rather, saved until I could afford what I really wanted). My best suggestion is to buy a bunch of the same type of box-you may need several different sizes-but try to keep the style the same.
- Command hooks: I think a scarf or a pretty necklace helps to pull an outfit together. I have a lot of necklaces but they would end up tangled or I would forget what I had when I left them in my jewelry box. At first I used little cup hooks inside which I drilled on the inside of our bedroom door. I’m sure if we ever sell, people will not be happy about the 100 small holes in the door. Also, when I would close the bedroom door at night, all of my necklaces would hit the door and wake up my husband and dog. So I moved them to the wall using command hooks. Now I can quickly see what I have when I am getting dressed in the morning.
- Underwear/sock sorters: I do not have time to fold my underwear. Also I’m at an age where I don’t have time to have different colors of underwear. Hey look, I just posted a picture of all of my underwear online. Actually, those are socks. But I stuff my underwear into similar containers. This is my favorite organizational system I have every purchased. Who knows how many hours I have saved folding underwear. You can check it out by clicking on my affiliate link below.
Bonus Organization Tip
I love this idea for using a dish drying rack to store coloring books so much I had to try it. Unfortunately, my coloring book were a little big for the drying rack I had. Still-it would be a cute thing to have in a waiting room.
