Organize In Plain Sight
Organize In Plain Sight - Whoever said organization couldn't be sexy? Outfit an étagère with boxes, bins, jars—whatever you want within reach, with an obvious spot for it to go back to.
Make An Entrance
No dedicated foyer? No problem. Wall hooks in an entry hall provide easy access to items you'll use daily, like tote bags for groceries, hats for sun protection or towels for picnicking in the park.
Organize Reference Materials
Pinterest is great, but so many of us still cling to back issues of Real Simple thinking we'll one day sift through all that advice on paring down, cleaning up, and organizing everything. Start by paring down the magazine collection itself, then organizing the pages or issues you want to keep for future reference.
Shelves, shelves, shelves! Deep shelves, shallow shelves, wide ones and narrow ones—mix it up depending on your needs and don't be afraid to drill. Even a more demure "ledge" can help get art and other knick-knacks off the floor.
Make Task-Dedicated Spaces
"Assigning" a desk corner to writing supplies, for example, will help eliminate the kind of office debris that ends up cluttering drawers. Plus, you'll be able to see what you really use.
