4 Essential Organizing Rules for Your New Home

Keeping Little Elm new homes organized maximizes space and enhances comfort. Over time, it’s easy to accumulate a lot of “stuff” that leads to clutter. This makes it hard to find the things you need and can overwhelm you if you’re not too careful.

The good news is that there’s no one way to carry out your organization project. But here are some essential rules you can follow to keep your new home looking great and clutter-free.

  1. Getting it All Out

When organizing a room, garage, or closet, begin by taking everything out. It’s a simple way to get started and gives you a clean slate to begin work.

Set aside containers that you can designate for the items you want to keep, those for donation or sale, and those that need to be thrown away or recycled.

Once you’ve emptied the space, begin putting back all of the things you want to keep. This lets you organize them in a way that makes them easy to find. Then put your donation and trash items in their proper containers.

  1. Keep Similar Items Togethe

Grouping similar items together helps you determine exactly how many of each item you have.

You may be surprised to find that you have more than enough pens, dustpans, chargers, and other items than you actually need.

Grouping items together makes it easy to determine what should stay in your home and what shouldn’t.

  1. Go Paperless

Paper is one of the biggest causes of clutter in today’s homes. Junk mail, as well as important documents, can stack up if you ignore them for too long.

Schedule times to go through your mail so that you can manage it better, and unsubscribe from mailings that are no longer relevant to your needs.

Banks, credit card companies, utility service providers, and other businesses offer paperless billing options. Request to receive your bills electronically to reduce paper clutter.

  1. Digital Clutter

Email inboxes, smartphone notifications, and social media updates are some of the things that distract people from important daily tasks.

There are many ways to minimize digital clutter. These include services that let you reschedule emails so that they’re delivered to your inbox on a later date.

Change your phone’s notification settings to limit them to those that you actually need. Others can be removed or hidden to be viewed at another time.

Reducing your digital clutter can give you more time and energy to keep your physical clutter in check.
