We’re often asked where to start in organizing a space. The very first step we suggest is to declutter and edit items to make sure you’re not organizing things you don’t want or need in a space (check out our post on decluttering if you missed it). Now lets get you started on getting organized!
The first step in organization is making a specific “home” for items. Using containers is a great way to keep similar items together in a specific spot you can easily find. Items won’t get lost in the back of closet shelves if they’re in a bin you can pull out. Also, uniform containers look a lot nicer than items jumbled on a shelf. Whether it’s children’s toys, a storage closet, or your pantry, containers are the start to making an organization system for your space.
Labels are KEY to finalizing an organization system. They help everyone in the family know where to find items and make it easier to maintain your newly organized spaces. Labeling helps to make sure a container, drawer, shelf, area is just for those items. Labels help us to put things back in the correct spot and find them when we’re in a rush. Not sure what to label?

Hangers are so important. They keep your clothes off the floor and help to make our clothing last longer. Using the right hangers is incredibly important. Matching hangers are a game changer – event matching plastic hangers will look better than a mismatch of colors or wire hangers. Who doesn’t want matching hangers that raise the aesthetic of your closet?!
