We dream of being organized at home and yet we find every time that our home does not look like what we hope. Rest assured, it’s not necessarily your fault. The organization of a house requires to invest a minimum. The opportunity to present 10 objects that seem to be points of detail but can change everything in the perspective of a better organized house.
1 – A basket of dirty clothes closed
As seen, we have already known better than the contents of a basket of dirty clothes. If you are lucky to have a laundry, the inconvenience is less but when the basket is in the middle of the bathroom, it is a horror (without exaggeration). Did you know that a lid on the basket was enough to fix all this? Not only does he hide the shapeless pile, but he also avoids the in-between, when a garment is straddling the edge of the basket, often because of a careless person.
2 – A big plateau
When it comes to tidying up, there are not 36 solutions. It is often necessary to go back and forth, for example between the kitchen and the dining room, to put in its place everything that has been disturbed. The solution, which is not necessarily limited to the dishes, is a large tray. Do not neglect this object that can, in one go, bring back twenty glasses to the kitchen or all the coloring business in the room of the youngest. It has the added advantage of taking only a small place, in short it has all good!
3 – A blackboard
It can take many forms: some have chosen the option of slate painting on a door, others have preferred the washable picture on the fridge. Its appearance is of little importance in the background, what matters is its visibility (the whole family must be able to access it) and its size (it must be able to contain a large amount of information). To mark the missing products, the dentist’s appointment or the school’s telephone number, the blackboard is essential!
4 – A recycling bin
Because recycling has become a moral obligation, it is essential to have a dedicated space for this kind of task.Even though the recycling bin is not dirty in itself, it gives an unpleasant feeling of disorder when it is not adapted. Fortunately we now find in the trade bins specially adapted for sorting. They are more practical, more beautiful and they allow a better organization, why deprive oneself?
5 – A key box
How do we know that our house deserves to be better organized? For example when looking for 30 minutes his keys inside his home. Such a thing should not happen. You have plenty of choice to keep your keys (drawer, storage, box or simple hook) but what is certain is that you need a place for your keys.
6 – A shoe cabinet
Sunday cleaning often involves a family picking up shoes scattered in several rooms.The problem with traveling shoes is that they are used to being abandoned where people take off their shoes. An organized house always has a shoe cabinet in the entrance, a shoe cabinet that seems to warn you if you do not properly store your booties, sandals and rain boots.
7 – Labels
In an organized house, everything is noted. In the kitchen, we know what jars contain. In the wardrobe, you do not lose a minute to find the scarves. On the desk shelf, everyone can know where the tax notices are. In the bathroom, you immediately put your hand on the aspirin. What is the common point? The labels that are both the guarantors of good storage and precious time gained.
8 – Storage under the bed
While square meters are counted in a house, you can not afford to leave empty spaces that could save you from so many situations.The storage under the bed are the allies of the one who wants to organize his house because they are easily accessible and their storage capacity is very important. You can put shoes, bed linen, clothes out of season, etc.
9 – Baskets on the ground
Although they can be accused of being tote bags, baskets on the ground can be very useful, especially when you have children. So the excuse of not being able to reorder because they do not reach the storage does not work anymore. It makes parents happy and a home much more welcoming when you can not walk on toys anymore.
10 – Any box
And since we’re talking about containers, do not forget the simplest of them, the box. Boxed storage has no limits, provided you follow some principles.We adapt its box to the content (no need to have a huge box for batteries) and we always label (see Chapter 7). Other than that, the box is the key to any organization so let go!
