10 Ways to Become Better Organized
1. Storage Boxes: Even something so small can have a major impact on your space. Storage boxes, bins, or baskets serve multiple purposes. They create an appealing look for your home while also putting things out of sight.2. Furnishings with Doors: If at all possible, decorate your home with door-fronted furniture. Television stands, armoires, cabinets, and so many more pieces of furniture can act as a storage container without creating an eyesore.3. Bed Risers: One issue that many renters may face is running out of storage and trying to find a way to create more storage. One way to do so is utilizing bed risers, especially in a child’s room or a guest room. This gives the ability to store items under the bed while still allowing them to be accessible.4. Key Hooks: Are you (or someone else in your home) always misplacing your keys? Try a key hook for the entryway! There are many options available now from sleek and modern to options that boast a lot of personality – either way, it will do its job and keep your keys where they belong!5. Cord Organizers: Whether the cords are under the desk in your office, bunched up with your entertainment center, or next to an end table, they can be quite unsightly! Cord organizers act as cover for your cords, while keeping them organized and out of eyesight. It also helps keep little fingers away too!6. Table Skirt: If your end table has a shelf underneath that you use for storage (or even the floor beneath it), topping it with a table skirt brings a cute addition to the room while still keeping the table functional.7. Hamper with a Lid: If you keep your clothes hamper out in the open, using one with a lid not only covers all of your dirty clothes but also helps keep your space looking neat and organized.8. Multi-Tasking Furniture: Furniture that serves multiple purposes is a must for those who require a lot of storage but desire pieces that serve another function. Pieces such as storage ottomans or storage beds are the perfect way to incorporate multiple functions.9. Mail or Coupon Box: Many of us are in the habit of tossing mail on the counter with the idea of going through it later, or even the coupons we get while grocery shopping. Rather than leaving it out, purchase a decorative box that can hide it for you until you have time to sort it out.10. Space Saver Bags: Vacuum-sealed bags give you the opportunity to store more items than usual under your bed or in a closet.
