One of the ways that I get inspired to clean and organize my home is to look through Pinterest for ideas. There are so many beautiful and creative ways to organize your home that it really does not have to be a struggle. Take it one step at a time, a room at a time and you will have an organized space that you can be proud of in no time! I have compiled my list of my favorite organization ideas to jump start my series of organization blogs that will be following this month. Stick around and see what I have come up with and better yet, hopefully it will help inspire you to tackle some rooms in your home!
One of my favorite rooms to organize is my closet. I love sorting through all my clothing and deciding what goes back in and what gets donated. Then putting everything back in and color coding along the way! (I know, I lead such an excited life, huh?!) One of the items that is harder for me to organize, is my purse collection. I have quite a few of them but I never get to fully see all of them because I always tend to stuff them in some free area of the closet. That is why I love this idea from Lucky Magazine (through the website CreativeMamaOnADime.com). What an awesome way to organize your purses while keeping them safe and protected. I cannot wait to find a bookcase so that I can create one of these for my very own!
One of the spaces that needs the most organization in my house is the refrigerator. This is definitely a task that I will be tackling this month. I find that when my fridge is disorganized, we tend to buy multiples of ingredients that just end up sitting in the fridge forgotten. Every once in a while I will clean the fridge out and start over, but I want to find an organizing tactic that will KEEP my fridge organized. I think this idea from athomewithnikki.com is incredible. If you haven't checked out her youtube channel, you must! I for one, I am totally addicted. She has amazing tips and home decor style. Here is the link of the video where she shows you how she keeps her fridge organized. I will definitely be doing this sometime this month and will be sure to keep you updated on my progress and thoughts!
Another project that I am hoping to be able to tackle this year is redoing the shelving in our pantry. Right now, we have 3 wire shelves that the builder installed and it is just not cutting it! I absolutely LOVE this pantry from Everything-Emmy.com. It is so amazingly organized and beautiful at the same time. This is going to be my inspiration for when we finally tackle this sore spot in our home. I love how everything has a home and you can clearly see what you have. On the site, she shows you how everything is labeled at the bottom of the containers so that the labels don't mess with the beauty of the food. How pretty is that?! Our pantry is not as big as hers, but the tips she provides can be applied to any sized pantry. She utilizes the entire space incredibly well and no space is left unused. I cannot wait to be able to get started on ours!
Another closet that I am dying to rid of the wire shelving is the linen closet. Do you guys notice a theme here in our house?! We currently have 3 wire shelves in there without any shelving at the bottom of the closet. I find this to be such wasted space! I am loving the tips that WaitingonMartha.com shares. I love the ideas of using baskets and labeling them. My linen closet after doing laundry always looks like a mess because we always end up shoving the clean linens in any open spot. Finding things the next time is always a struggle. I will definitely be implementing this tip whenever we tackle this closet! I cannot wait, it almost makes me giddy with excitement!
This last organization tip is one of my favorites because it is SO useful! I actually have implement this in my own kitchen and my cabinets are so beautifully organized that I sometimes just love opening them to see everything so neatly stacked and ready for use. KevinandAmamanda.com shows you exactly how to use these wonderful kitchen organizers in the kitchen. You can purchase these from any discount store retailer like Target or Walmart. They make organizing large kitchen cabinets a breeze and also make it a whole lot easier to see what you have and be accessible.
