These 3 DIY home organization tips will make you feel better about your life! What is it about the month of January and the incredibly strong desire to once and for all organize our stuff? Someone once said, you can’t reach for anything new if your hands are still filled with yesterday’s junk. That being said, I hope you find these three simple DIY organization tips helpful along your path to simplicity and organization.

Boost Your Bathroom’s Storage

Next to the kitchen, the bathroom is the most important room in the house.  No matter who you are, chances are, the time you spend each day in the bathroom is important to your routine. Having your essentials handy and easy to reach can be the start of a good day.  Using bins and baskets to store toiletries, paper supplies etc. is not only functional but pleasing to the eye as well.  Mounting shelves over the toilet and over the door can make an excellent use of limited space.

Customize Your Closets

How often do you go into your closet only to find NOTHING to wear? Having organization in the closet makes clothing choice much easier and even fun! The art of organizing closets is therapeutic in itself.  Sorting through yesterday’s wardrobe and making room for todays can be very invigorating. To maximize your closet space, I suggest installing designated storage solutions like shoe racks, hooks for handbags and hanging rods at different heights for shirts, pants and dresses.

Make the Most of Your Garage

Our garages are often the catch all for random items.  When organizing the garage, it’s a good idea to sort through items that you haven’t used in a year and consider donating them or selling them.  The real estate space you open up as a result will be WELL worth it.  Add racks for bikes and sports equipment. Add overhead shelving for seasonal items and of course label everything and you can even go the extra mile and color code your bins.

I hope these 3 DIY home organization tips have inspired you because it’s always a good idea to organize your home, especially so if you are considering putting it on the market.  When every item actually has a designated space, the home will feel larger and more open to potential buyers.  Even if you aren’t putting your home on the market, you will enjoy the organization you’ve created and the freedom that comes along with it.  If these DIY organization tips have inspired you to complete more upgrades, feel free to reach out for a free consultation and I can help you determine which projects may add value to your home.
