There are many benefits to having an organised home but keeping it this way is often easier said than done. An organised home can help to reduce stress, improve sleep, promote a healthier diet, increase productivity and improve relationships so why is it so hard to stay organised?
Many people claim to be too busy to clean their homes and stay organised but often it is down to not possessing the tools or knowledge to do so. To help, we’ve compiled a list of 7 items and tips you need for home organisation.
1. Start with the pantry
Your pantry is where you keep your ambient foods and whilst the importance of keeping these items fresh is lower compared to meats in the fridge, a well-organised pantry can make your life easier and your food tastier.
Buy airtight containers to organise items like rice or pasta and prevent them from going stale over time.
2. Wall-mounted holders
Not sure where to put your mops and brooms to utilise space? Walls around the house often go unused but are in fact a great storage option. Use wall-mounted holders and hang your mops and brooms up to save space for other items.
3. Organise your fridge
Did you know that 9.5 million tonnes of food goes to waste every year and one of the main causes of that is unorganised fridge space? When you organise your fridge, you will have full visibility of what you have in there so will eat the food before it goes out of date.
4. Innovative hangers
These S-shaped hangers are the perfect tool for saving space on clothing. Thanks to their shape, you can hang more than one pair of trousers per hanger and they can also be handy for putting all your scarves in one place.
5. Spice holder
Enjoy adding lots of spices to your home cooking? Whilst your food may taste great, having all of thee spices can take up a significant amount of room in your kitchen. Use a spice holder and have all of your spices in one place – plus it looks great too.
6. Maximise cupboard storage
Cupboards only have so much space however with an extendable storage shelf, you’ll be able to add more room to your cupboard easily. Place jars, containers and tins on these and find it easier than ever to find the items you need.
7. Shoe storage
Shoes can be awkward to store and the last thing you want to do is leave them at the front door which will have your home feeling cluttered straight away.
One simple solution is to use shoe slot organisers to stack your shoes on top of each other perfectly which free up more storage space. These items are ideal for understairs wardrobes.
