7 Creative Ways to Organize Your Home

The thought of organizing your home is enough to send some people into a frenzied panic. The task can seem so daunting with so many rooms and things cluttered throughout the house. Fortunately, there are a lot of tips and tricks people have created through the years to make organizing every area of your house a little bit easier. With the help of the Simply Remarkable team, here are seven creative ways to organize your home this year.

1. Pantry Makeover: Gather up some mason jars, Tupperware and bins and go to work organizing everything in your pantry. Place spices, sugars, dry goods and flour in clear jars. Also throw out any products that have expired or you don’t use.

2. Wired Baskets for Cooking Utensils: For those who own a restaurant, catering business or who simply have a ton of cooking utensils, a great way to organize all these items is to place them in wired baskets that have been mounted to the wall. This way the utensils are easily accessible during cooking and not hidden in a drawer.

3. Label Leftovers in the Fridge: If you have leftovers or make meals for the week on Sunday, be sure to place a label on the containers to remind you when each meal should be eaten.

4. Hang Bags on Shower Hooks: Tired of having your designer bags on the floor or in a box? Use a shower curtain hook to hang them up in the closet.

5. Store Matching Sheets Inside Their Pillowcases: Until I found this trick, I always had trouble keeping track of matching sheets and pillow cases. No everything is neatly organized inside our home’s linen closet.

6. Organize Tools into Buckets and Label: The garage can be a black hole for things in some homes. Take back your garage space by placing tools and other items in storage bins. Don’t forget to label each when you’re packing.

7. Label Your Cords: Overwhelmed by the amount of cords behind your TV or desktop computer, place a tag on each cord to help identify the electronic it belongs to.
