I've been spring cleaning this month and am slowly making progress. Here are some quick ways to organize your home.
My friend Vanessa had a great comment on an earlier post. She suggested putting all of your plastic grocery sacks into a baby wipe container. I did that and it freed up a lot of space under my kitchen sink.
This whole drawer below was stuffed with cds. I bought a cd case that holds 320 cds (can buy for $20 shipped online) and put all of our cds and covers in it and gave all the cases away. It frees up space so we can hold other things in the drawer now and it is easier to find the cds we are looking for.
I bought a label maker for $20 at Wal-Mart and have loved it. I label everything now.
I cleaned out my filing cabinet and printed out labels. My filing cabinet is in bad shape. I am on the hunt for a new, solid wood cabinet.
I organized my closet and bought plastic bins for everything on my shelves and labeled them.
I labeled all my spices. The labels that came on them when I purchased were rubbing off. I also threw out any of the spices on the rack I don't use and refilled the bottles with spices I do use.
I bought these fun jars at Target (but I saw them at Wal-Mart the day after I filled them for much cheaper) to hold my sugars, cornmeal, wheat flour and labeled them.I went through my magazines and cut out articles I would read again and filed them and recycled the rest of the magazines. I am now going to start doing this while reading the magazine the first time. Great time and space saver.
Those are some of my favorite tips. Please leave me a comment with your favorite organization tip. I love getting new ideas!
