Get Your Whole Family Organized – Just in Time for the Holidays!

The holidays can be an overwhelming time. And if your home is disorganized, that can just make things more stressful. You want to be more organized. The thing is, home organization can be a daunting project in and of itself…

That’s why here at Modular Closets, we’re advocates for simple strategies that can make a big difference, so that you can make major strides in home organization without feeling like you’re in over your head in a massive project.

To get started with home organization: start by clearly defining your goals.

The truth is, if your home is currently disorganized, it’s probably too big a project to tackle in a weekend, especially if you’re also involved in holiday activities too. That means it’s time to prioritize. Think about the rooms in your home where you spend the most time (or the most valuable time).

Ask yourself: which room, if you were to get it organized, would have the most impact on the ease of your day to day routine?

If you want to start getting your home organized in time for the holidays, here are 3 rooms you might want to choose to focus on first:

1. Your Family Mudroom or Entryway

Every home has the doorway that people use most.

Maybe you have a formal entryway that rarely gets used with a busy side door that leads to a mudroom. Or, maybe your front door is your family’s preferred access way. Whichever way you like to enter and exit your home, it’s likely that the area around that favorite doorway is prone to clutter and disorganization.

In order to get more organized, think about how you can improve the storage possibilities surrounding the door. Maybe you could use a system of open shelves with bins to store gloves, hats, umbrellas, mail, and other items that are frequently coming in or going out?

Maybe you need some closed drawers, so there’s a clear spot for your keys, loose change, extra cards, and other small items you may want to grab on the go. Or maybe you could use a new closet space nearby with extra hanging rods to store coats, jackets, sportswear, and other clothing?

Make sure you have easy access a clear place to put things away as you come and go every day.

2. Your Kids’ Rooms

If you have children, it’s a good idea to start helping them learn how to get organized as early as possible.

However, they key to getting your kids’ rooms clean is not merely a matter of lessons and habits, you also want to make sure they are set-up for success.

Is there a designated space in your kids’ rooms for all their belongings? Maybe you need to incorporate some extra bins, drawers, and shelves so that they have an organization system in place for all their things.

3. Your Master Bedroom

If your bedroom is clean and organized, it can feel like a relaxing oasis – and that may be just what you need to best deal with holiday stress!

Many people don’t make the best use of the storage potential they have available in their bedroom closets. Whether you have a walk-in or a reach-in closet, you can add extra shelves, drawers or maybe even rows of hanging rods so that you take advantage of all the space in your closet and maximize your storage possibilities.

Just in time for the holidays, we’d love to give the gift of a free closet design – you can get the process started on our Modular Closets website!
