8 Smart Organization Hacks That Professional Organizers Use

by Simplify

There are so many great organization hacks you can use to keep your home clean and clutter-free. Getting your space organized is just one piece of getting your home in order. Keeping it organized is an entirely separate endeavor. These tips will help you get organized and stay organized.

The first thing you should do is assign and designate a spot for every item in your home. Cleaning is easier when you know where things go. Don’t bring anything new into your home unless you know where you’re going to keep it.

Once you’ve found a place for each thing you own, label everything. When something is labeled there’s a better chance that it will go back where it belongs. Labeling also makes it easier for everyone else in the household to maintain the cleanliness of the space.

Make a habit of putting stuff away for the first two minutes of every time you enter your home. Prevent clutter by maintaining awareness of what you’re doing. Don’t just dump things when you walk into your home. Designate spaces for all your usual items like keys, shoes, and jackets. Be aware of where you’re putting things.

Decluttering and organizing

Practice purging often. If you only purge once or twice a year clutter will build up. Look for things you can get rid of every single day. Don’t let things pile up. When you get in the habit of decluttering regularly, it also makes you more conscious of what you bring into your home.
