What you can organize this weekend, without a lot of effort.

There’s nothing more gratifying to me that a project you can start and finish in the same day – or less! A nice little checkmark on the list and the feeling of accomplishment.

There’s no better time than the present, or weekend, to get organized. I’m sharing 5 things you can organize this weekend, and then celebrate by Sunday with a Strawberry Lemon Mimosa!

Your paint colors. Does it bother you that when you need a quick touchup you’re not exactly sure which one you need? Or when you look for a can of paint and find that you have a few in the garage, a couple on the stairs and a slew of paint stored in the basement? Oh, that’s just me? Last week I organized our paint cans and colors by level and it felt so good. Over time paint cans have been left in various places, cluttering areas they don’t belong. My convenient paint color chart will ensure you never mess up with a touch-up.

Command Hook storage. Make use of cabinet space with convenient easy to relocate, non-damaging Command Hooks. It can maximize valuable real estate in a small kitchen without any effort – or holes! Get the details here.

Under your kitchen sink. I need to photograph our new kitchen storage, but as you can see, using dollar store bins is a convenient way to organize the area under your kitchen sink. Eliminate anything you don’t use {or that doesn’t belong there} and group products into categories. I keep dishwasher detergent, scrubbers, etc next to the dishwasher and frequently used cleaning supplies on the other. Rarely used specialty items go in the back, but with the use of bins, are easily accessible and won’t fall down.

Laundry Room. Eliminate what you don’t need and consolidate what you do with my free printable natural stain removal guide. I like to keep the basics easily accessible and store remaining products, an iron, steamer, etc in the cabinets above. Learn how to organize your laundry room here.

Linen Closet or Linen Cabinet. Yes, I have both, a linen closet for sheets and blankets and a linen cabinet for pillows and throws. Pick one and in just a few minutes you can be done! Get tips and tricks to organizing your linens in minutes here.

  1. Great ideas. Nice and quick. These are the ones that make us feel more accomplished. Personally I will be trying to get some outside cleanup done from a long, never ending winter. Thank you for sharing the ideas though. A couple of those might fit in nicely on a weeknight.

  2. I absolutely adore your blog posts! They’re so inspirational! I love what you do, and the things you post is exactly the kind of things I’m interested in. ❤️

  4. What kind of dish/ hand soap is that in your kitchen? Is it a combo deal or just for dishes? Do you remember where you got your dish scrubber too? Thanks!!

    • Sorry I missed this – I use a glass bottle from HomeGoods and refill with Seventh Generations clear/unscented dish soap. I use it for both hands and dishes. The scrubber is from Sur La Table. Enjoy!

  5. Your photographs are always beautiful. Can you please tell me where you found the little frames/tiny label signs for your pantry shelves? I don’t even know what to call them. Thanks so much.

  6. Hi Julie, I loved your organization suggestions, especially the linen closet and linen cabinet. I didn’t know there was a name for the linen cabinet, and I have one too! Have a great weekend!

  7. Your photography is always just beautiful…  Would love a lesson.  My Mom, who just died at 92, told me that her Mother told her that you could judge a good housekeeper by her linen closet.  I think you win the prize.  😉
