Organizing Your Home | Storage and Organization Tips

LAST UPDATED: Feb 14, 2020 | PUBLISHED: Dec 26, 2016 | By: Julie Blanner

I love Christmas, but I don’t love the chaos it leaves behind. Waste baskets filled with paper, toys everywhere and decor that has to be put away until next year. I’m always looking for ways to streamline our home to make the transition through seasons a little more seamless and our home a little more calm. I’ve invited my friends Shades of Blue Interiors, The Zhush, Thistlewood Farms, Ella ClaireFrench Country Cottage, Beneath My Heart and Boxwood Avenue to share their tips to make 2017 our most organized yet!

Really, my #celebrateorganization tour is our home tour – exposed. You get to see behind the cabinet doors, inside the drawers and a few free printables, too!

Don’t have a linen closet? Convert a piece of furniture into a linen cabinet to store pillows, throws, and seasonal pillow covers.

Baskets, I can never have too many baskets! I use them in the laundry room, family room as end tables, the mudroom to store the girls’ shoes and in the living room bookcases to conceal dvd’s and games.

But it’s what lies beneath those baskets that may surprise you. Open the doors in the built in bookcases to reveal a mini bar. I like to make valuable use of every inch! It’s a pretty way to display and store your liquor that goes away when you close the doors.

Another storage and organization trick is to make the most of your tables. A versatile piece of furniture often amounts to less pieces, consuming less space. This pretty little table works as a bar cart, plant stand, end table, just about anything I need, when I need it.

Tips to organize your home office, schedule and priorities

You don’t have to use plastic to organize. Think outside of the box, when selecting “boxes”.  I found pretty glass boxes to organize my desk in the bath section of Target. They keep everything in their place.

Easy ideas to get organized and maximize space

Install hooks – they’re a simple way to hang coats, bags, bathrobes and towels. Use them thoughtfully and they can offer storage in an otherwise empty wall.
