Implement A Filing System

Most of us have tons of papers and documents around the house: bills, receipts, school papers, work papers, letters, cards and much more. What about organizing them all? A filing system will help you get rid of all those piles of papers around the house and easily find whatever you need at once. While creating categories, leave some blank ones to fill them when you have something new. Then just take your filing system and store it comfortably – in a cabinet, baskets, boxes or even a chest if you want.

Organize Your Pantry

A pantry is the most important food storage space in your home and it should look organized eliminating that stress of looking something you need for a long time. Put everything in baskets, drawers, jars, add labels and other stuff that helps you make the space neat. If you don’t have a pantry – no problem, do the same with the cabinets you have in the kitchen.

Organize Your Cords And Electronics

We all have lots of gadgets and devices these days and it often means that we have more and more cords all around. These tangled messes trap dirt and lint! Untangle the mess, zip tie the cords in a neat bundle and add a piece of washi tape at the base where the cord plugs into the power strip. On that tape, write the device to which the cord connects. That way, if you ever need to cut power to something specific, it’s a snap. Ditch anything that hasn’t revealed its use. Wrap up cords that do have a use – but that you don’t need at the moment – and put them in a cardboard toilet paper roll.
