Most people like to organize their home at the beginning of the year, but any month is a good time to get your house in shape. I often feel like I’m never going to get fully organized; the task sometimes feels overwhelming. So needless to say, I’m always looking for easy tips for organizing the home. Here are a few to get you started on the right path. (This post contains affiliate links.)
I dislike digging for favorite spices so I put them in a handy wire basket shelf in close reach of the kitchen range.
Get rid of boxes and bags and store sundry and other items in clear jars with attractive labels. The clear jars let you easily see when you’re almost out of something.
Add drawer dividers to keep utensils easy to find. My utensil drawer is in desperate need of dividers. I won’t have to dig through tongs and spoons that get tangled together.
If space allows, install or purchase a larger organization unit. Label the outside of boxes so you know what’s stored inside.
Use closet organizers to create more space in any closet of your home.
Speaking of closets, Diane at In My Own Style shares a super easy and handy tip for keeping clothes from slipping off hangers.

Use attractive baskets to keep open bathroom shelves neat and tidy.
