Raise your hand if you made a New Year’s resolution this year!
- Making the resolution is the easy part, the hard part is actually following through! All month long we’ll be bringing your tips and advice to help stick to your home improvement resolutions. We’ll be covering topics such as adding color to your space and picking the best “green” products for your home. We’re kicking off our New Year’s resolution month with our best tips for getting your home organized!
Clever Storage Solutions
Shelves and cabinets aren’t the only storage solutions. Invest in pieces that serve double-duty, such as ottomans and benches that open up to store blankets, pillows and other odds and ends. Have you ever considered using a toothbrush holder to store those rampant pens and pencils laying around your home office? Or decorative glass jars to store miscellaneous kitchen and bathroom clutter? Better Homes & Gardens offers these clever storage solutions and more!
A place for everything and everything in it’s place… it’s easier to know where things belong when there are labels. Toy bins, coat hooks, kitchen canisters – all can be labeled for easy identification and organization!
DIY Home Organization
Before you go running off to the store to purchase a bunch of fancy bins, boxes and shelves, look around your home and see what you have to start with. Have an old wall-mounted magazine rack you’re not using? Hang it inside your kitchen cabinet to store and organize pot lids. Use an old door-hanging shoe organizer to store cleaning supplies in your laundry room or pantry. Do you have some leftover crown molding from your latest home improvement project? Turn it into a shoe storage solution! (Via Clever and Catchy)
