7 Sure Fire Declutter Home Organization Tips

Here are 7 easy declutter home organization tips.

#1. Declutter a room in your home before buying extra storage for that room. It's tempting to buy the storage first, but you'll just end up storing things you should have let go.

#2. Make sure there's easy access to most storage areas. If you look around your home, you may be surprised at how many storage cabinets or closets have furniture obstructing access. If you have closet space that just can't be easy to reach, then use it for seasonal storage only.

#3. Buy dual-function furniture where ever possible. Built-in drawers underneath the bed. Drawers built into coffee tables. Foot stools that have built-in storage. If you have a bedroom that's only used as an occasional guest room, then instal a wall-bed.

#4. Get organizers/dividers for drawers that store small items. Never over-fill drawers or closets as that's the surest way to lose control of your house.

#5. Vacuum pack seasonal clothing. It'll save so much space. These are bags that use your vacuum cleaner to suck the air out of. So apart from the bags, you don't need any special equipment.

#6. Plan storage based on what you do and where you do it. For example, if you get undressed in the bedroom, have a container handy for anything that's in the pockets. Or how about a key rack near the front door. No more hunting for the car keys.

#7. Concealed storage always beats open shelving. Open shelves quickly become disorganized. A door on a closet or cabinet will always make the room look tidier.
