Organizing an area

Organizing is my thing. I organize everything: clothes, shoes, towels, kitchen drawers, pantry shelves, bathroom drawers you name it. Here are some of my organization tips.

Before I begin to organize an area I always start with removing items that are:

  1. Less frequently used/worn (if the item hasn’t been used/worn for at least six month to a year, or has dust on it, then it’s time to go
  2. I never trash items that someone else can use. I donate. My “trash” can be someone else’s treasure. (Besides it’s a nice tax write off)
  3. I organize items according to color, size, and sometimes alphabetically 😊

My advice is:

  1. Start with a smaller area first e.g. Under your bathroom sink
  2. Sort out the items you less frequently use.
  3. For the items you are keeping, group them together according to category e.g. Hair products, shaving products, lotions etc.
  4. Use containers, or lazy Susan’s, or Stackable drawers to hold your categorized items.
  5. Add Category labels to the front if you decided with drawers or containers.
