Jump-Start Your Fall Cleaning with These Organization Tips

Posted by Devon Shryock

This year, consider fall cleaning to help your family get organized. The back-to-school season is often extremely hectic as the family adjusts to new school schedules. Getting organized now will help your family start on the right track for the rest of the school year.

  1. Let each person plan their own personal storage system. This way, they'll be more likely to use it.
  2. Integrate storage into the home and furniture, rather than just buying more containers. Functional areas include under the bed and under the stairs.
  3. Hide any extra clutter cleverly. A window bench that doubles as storage for extra blankets and pillows is always a good idea.
  4. Designate one wall for shelves in any given room - but just one. You don't want to overwhelm the room with too much on the walls. However, shelves, whether part of a larger piece or freestanding, are a great way to keep stuff off the floor.
  5. The closet is the most efficient area for storage. It's also the most neglected. It is far too easy to throw things in and forget about them. Avoid that with these closet hacks:
  • Hanging drawers combine the efficiency of a dresser with the accessibility of a closet. They're a great alternative to a dresser if you're short on space while still being able to separate items that don't need to be hung.
  • Choose more small and shallow drawers over a few big and deep ones. They'll hold more and are less likely to become cluttered.
  • Cubbies on the ground can hold shoes or heavier items such as jeans.
  • Trays and small cubbies will keep accessories like belts and ties separate, without allowing them to get tangled up.
  • Only keep seasonal clothing items visible. Store any other clothes you probably won't wear this fall in baskets or bins on a higher shelf.

Starting the year clean and organized can set the tone for the next nine months. If you're lacking storage space or feeling too cramp, consider a home remodel.
