5 Home Organisation Tips to Keep Things Tidy

Many people look for ways to organise their homes better. If you believe your home is overflowing with items, it’s time to do something about it. That’s where these five home organisation tips come in handy!

These tips will allow you to enjoy every aspect of your home without feeling stressed or overwhelmed by the clutter that used to surround you.

Home Organisation Tips for Your Home

1. Clean as you go

This is a great tip that can help you keep your home organised.

As soon as you’re done cooking or cleaning, clean up right away!

Don’t let dishes pile up in the sink and leave them there for several hours before doing something about it, as it will just continue to build up, making it more challenging to tackle. By cleaning as you go, it will make it a lot easier to keep your home organised without feeling overwhelmed.

2. Stick to your tidying routines

If you want to keep your home organised, it’s essential that you stick to your tidying routines.

If you only clean up when your house is overwhelmingly dirty, it won’t be easy to maintain order in your home.

On the other hand, if you don’t have any tidying routines, it might be time to sit down and create one that works for your lifestyle and needs. For example, maybe set aside specific days to clean different home areas or create organising systems that keep your home decluttered.

3. Get rid of things you don’t need

One of the best ways to organise your home is to get rid of things you don’t need.

If you have a lot of clutter in your house, it’s because you have too many things!

So, go through your belongings and get rid of anything that you don’t use or need. This can be tough, but it’s worth it in the long run. You’ll be amazed at how much space you free up when you get rid of the clutter!

If you’re too busy to do this on your own and need help, check out our in-home organisation session. At Ducks in a Row Home Organisation, we help women create organisation systems that will help them de-stress their lives using simple methods and functional results. We guide, support, and coach our clients in making decisions for themselves by asking questions, instead of telling them what to keep and what to throw away. Click here to find more.

4. Create storage systems

If you have a lot of things, it’s essential to create a storage system that works for you. This could mean investing in some extra shelves or cabinets or simply using boxes and baskets to store your belongings. When everything has a place, it’s easier to keep your home organised.

5. Use labels

Labelling is an excellent way to keep your home organised.

If everything has a label, you and other family members will know where each item goes and how to put it back when you’re finished using it. This can be especially helpful if you have children helping you keep your home clean!

Labelling can turn into an excellent organising system that works for all household members.

Organising your home can feel like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. With these 5 home organisation tips, you’ll find decluttering and organising your space easier and less time-consuming. However, if that sounds too complicated to handle alone, check out our in-home organising session.

We also offer a Shopping Service where we take into consideration your personal style, budget and complete the shopping of all the items you need to organise and style your home, prior to our session. Complete our online enquiry form today!
