Good habits to help keep you organized:

 

  • ​​When you use an item in your home, put it back where it belongs.

  • Either hang up your clothes immediately or put them in the laundry basket.

  • Always make your bed. The room will look tidy and it's a great way to start your day.

  • While working in the kitchen, clean as you go. This prevents having a huge pile of dishes later.

  • Take 10 minutes at the end of each day to open and file mail in a "to-do" folder, a completed folder or toss into recycling.

  • Always grocery shop with a list. This will prevent you from buying unnecessary or duplicate items. Make sure to check your pantry before going. 

  • Keep your pantry organized by making a habit of going through it once every three months. Get rid of expired products or products you will not use. Donate good items to the food bank.

  • In your linen closet, organize your sheets and pillow cases, neatly folded and stored inside one of the pillow cases. When you are ready to change your bed, simply grab a bundle, no more searching through the pile.

  • If you are thinking whether to keep or let go of an item, ask the question "Is it important or useful?" Anything else may just be taking up space!

  • Moving into a condo is a big adjustment. You don’t always have the storage space that you are used to so you have to be creative. I have part of my pantry in a spare room closet, items are easily accessible and out of the way. 

  • Keep your closet organized. Start fresh by hanging your clothes with the hangers backwards. Once you wear an item, hang it back up the proper way. After a season, it will be easy to determine what you are not wearing (all backward facing hangers) and you can then decide to either donate to charity, consign or send for repair.
