Let’s face it…you’re a mess. In fact, all of us are. So why not try to get 2017 headed in the right direction with a number of great items to help declutter and simplify your life!
You can never find them, and if you CAN, they’re on the coffee table, totally in the way of whatever you want to set down. Why not solve the problem with simple strips of velcro? I like to stick them on the television, but you could choose the spot that works best for you.
#9. Command Hooks
These things have changed my life. Instead of purses dumped on shelves or the closet floor – hooks! Instead of laundry drying on top of the washer or hanging on pantry knows – hooks! Dustpan? Keys? Hooks!
You get the idea.
Ugh, the dump spot. I have one that sort of traveled from a little table in my entryway, to my desk, to the dining room table, but after a few small baskets, hooks, and trays – voila! Organization, my friends!
#7. Storage Bins
These things have saved my life. They’re under my sinks, my desk, in the baby’s room, the laundry room, and on storage shelves in the basement and the garage. Not only do they look spiffy, they’re killer for keeping clutter organized and in its place. Stock up.
#6. Crap Baskets
Fact: If you’ve got kids, you’ve got crap. There’s probably no way to eliminate that fact from your life, but you can organize it. Give each kid a basket in the entryway or on the steps to stow their things during the week, then make it a Saturday chore to put everything away. Genius!
Under the sink, be it in the bathroom or the kitchen, your cleaning supplies are probably a jumbled mess. These little caddies are genius. I own two.
#4. Cord Ties
This is a cheap way to get started and to make a huge impact on any room in your home. Who likes to stare at tangled cords? Not anyone who likes to feel zen, that’s for sure.
I’m a grown up (mostly) and can barely manage to use the towel bar in the bathroom without the darn thing slipping onto the ground on 2 out of 3 tries. Hooks are SO much easier, and if there are multiple people using a bathroom, it’s nice for everyone to have their own. Try it – you won’t be sorry.
There are so many things that you can use these for – I use them for batteries, sewing supplies, and I have a larger one for nail polish. If you don’t have a jewelry box, they work great for that, too!
If you don’t have a place for your mail, where does it end up? Who knows, but probably cluttering a surface you’re going to need to use sooner or later (dining room table, here). These hanging baskets are genius – there’s a place for your mail, and it’s not laying flat.
