Practical Every Day Organizing Tips for Your Home

How organized is your home? Do you have a place for everything, or has clutter become the bane of your existence? With just a few practical every day organizing tips, you will be able to transform your home into an organized space you’ll fall in love with all over again.

When it comes to house cleaning in Woodlands, TX, residents know that Maid for Muddy Paws is your go-to choice for keeping your home clean, tidy, and smelling fresh. Did you know that an organized home is easier to keep clean? 

But where do you start? Ask yourself a few questions. What areas of your home are working well, and what areas could use work? Do you lack key storage solutions? Are you finding it difficult to decide which items should be kept and donated or tossed?

Opt for Versatile and Practical Versus Pretty

We’ve all been guilty of scooping up those pretty fabric baskets for our cubbies or for that corner next to the fireplace. But just how practical, versatile, and useful are they really? Cubby storage can be a great option for a hallway or bedroom. But if the baskets won’t hold up or hold the items you’re stashing in them, they’re not worth the investment.

That’s not to say that you need to opt for sterile and boring. There are plenty of options in storage solutions that are durable enough to stand up to the use they’ll see. One of the things that we find useful, as your pet-friendly housecleaning Woodlands, TX, is a durable basket for your pet’s toys. Pick out a plastic or metal lined basket for your pet’s toys, with perhaps a woven exterior. That way, you get the practical storage you want, with the versatility of a piece that doubles as a part of your home’s décor.

Practical storage bins can also help to keep your linen closet, bathroom, and closets organized. Our friends at Headwaters Construction Inc., a retail renovation company in Sacramento, recommends getting custom cabinets built.

Containers, Labels, and Organization

Take a look at your kitchen cupboards and pantry. This is often one of the first areas of the home that can benefit from an organizational makeover. Invest in containers that are perfect for storing your flour, sugar, cereals, pasta, and more. Using a label maker or printable labels, add a label to each container so that there’s no guessing about what is inside of each of them.

Keeping your pantry essentials in plastic containers will protect them from inspection and make more room in your space. Not to mention that when you opt for a whole-house cleaning service in Woodlands, TX, you will find it’s infinitely easier to dust down the containers and wipe the shelves down.

Organizing The Junk Drawer

Who doesn’t have a junk or catch-all drawer in their home? This space can actually prove to be useful, particularly if you invest in drawer divider sets. Smaller containers can also be useful in your junk drawer. Store those buttons, screws, or other small items that seem to have no other place in your home.

An organized junk drawer is sure to prove helpful, particularly when you find yourself in need of that button when you find the sweater it belongs to. Be sure that everyone in the home knows that this is the space for items that have no other home. 

Organizing The Laundry Room and Garage

No matter the size of your laundry room, you will be surprised at just how much more organized you can be with the installation of one or more shelves. Those bulk buys of paper towels can be picked up off of the floor, and your overflow from the pantry can be better managed.

Organizing the garage is another area that can be overhauled with simple shelves. Shelves not only get items up and off the floor, but they help to maximize your usable space. Some of the items that don’t belong in the house, like sports equipment and tools, are better stored neatly in the garage.

Cleaning Supplies and Pet Essentials

Investing in a caddy that will fit your cleaning supplies is a great idea. It will store your must-haves neatly under your kitchen or bathroom sink. It will also make it a breeze to clean around your home when you are between your housekeepers’ appointments.

When we come in for maintenance cleaning, homeowners will find that keeping everything in its place will make the process go just that much smoother. The same holds for your pet essentials. Keeping their brushes, shampoos and even snacks organized in specific areas of your home. Keeping their food and snacks in labeled containers can also help you to maximize your storage space.
