Put items close together that are used for similar purposes – and label if you need quick access to them
This last tip works well in rooms like the kitchen and bathroom.
For instance, grouping similar items together like spices, canned goods, and baking supplies will do you good when organising in the kitchen. On the other hand, grouping similar items like face cloths, towels, and toilet paper will do you good in the bathroom.
Suggestion: Use bins or containers to house such similar items. If you want extra easy access to these items, attach a delicate tag to the bin or container with a general name written on it. For instance, in the kitchen, you could write ‘spices’ on a tag, and in the bathroom, you could write ‘towels’ on a tag. That way, instead of looking into every basket, you can just pull out the basket you need and take what you want.
These organisation tips are very basic, and they can help the most experienced organiser, or they can help the organiser that’s just starting to learn. Once you have these set in stone in your household, you can then move on to more complicated ‘neat freak’ skills.
