4 Common Clutter Zones You Can Quickly Get Organized for 2019
Published in 1.16.2019
If you’re like many busy working adults, when you arrive home at the end of the day, you don’t have the time or the energy to do lots of cleaning. You’re probably already exhausted and there’s still dinner to make and maybe even extra work you need to get prepared before tomorrow’s big morning meeting. It would be nice to finally get organized and come home to a clean house…but who’s got the time for that?
If you would like to finally get organized for 2019, we’d love to help. Here at Modular Closets, we specialize in creating custom closet systems and personalized home organization solutions that help busy adults deal with clutter. One effective strategy is to focus on the areas of your home that are most prone to become a mess and incorporate storage solutions to reduce clutter.
Here are 4 of the most common clutter zones in homes across America and what you can do to quickly get them organized this year:
The entrance to your home that gets used on a day-to-day basis naturally becomes a place where clutter is likely to accumulate. Bags, coats, shoes, and other items you bring in and out can easily create a mess.
Rather than having to spend the time walking to an upstairs closet or an office down the hall, you’ll make life easier by creating an organization solution right by the door. Maybe you even have a nearby closet where you can add extra shelves and drawers to organize your belongings. If not, consider adding a storage bench or wall hooks so that it’s quick and easy to put things away.
2. Kitchen Counters
Kitchen counters are prone to become accidental catch-all’s for all sorts of non-kitchen items. Mail, bills, school projects, and other papers often start to pile up in kitchens where they don’t belong.
In order to clear up this mess, try creating an “inbox system” in your office or entryway. By using a few baskets or bins, you can create a designated place where papers can go temporarily until you have time at the end of the week to review and sort through them.
3. Laundry Room
Laundry rooms can easily become a mess of dirty clothes that need washing and clean clothes that need perhaps to be ironed or folded before they’re put away.
Creating a laundry room storage system can help cut down on the clutter. Try adding 2 or 3 rolling hampers to your laundry room so clothes can be sorted as they’re brought in. You may also want a folding or slide-out ironing board that can be used right there and put away without taking up too much space.
4. Closet Floors
When you’re busy trying to quickly transition from one activity to another, it’s easy for clothes and shoes to end up in random piles on your closet floor.
Simple storage solutions – like cubbies, extra shelves, and drawers – can make it easier to keep your wardrobe organized so that finding the clothes you need is a breeze. Shoe storage can be simple with enough shelves and drawers so that every shoe has its place.
