New Year’s Organization Tips

The new year is a great time to set some goals and resolutions.  A well-organized home can lead to a less chaotic home life, better time management and less stress.  As Kamloops’ premier movers, we would like to offer you the following New Year’s organization tips.

Clear the Clutter

This tip may seem obvious, but it may be more difficult than you think.  You may want to take a two-step approach to achieve this goal.  The first step should involve throwing out or recycling any items, materials and other stuff that you do not need.  Be honest with yourself and try to purge unnecessary items.

Here’s the deal:

If you haven’t used an item in the past year, it probably isn’t worth keeping.

Once you are satisfied with the first step, it is time to re-organize your belongings.  Some innovative ways to re-organize include:

  • Grouping similar items together and in the same room, so when you need them you know their exact location.
  • Labeling or creating a specific space for items.
  • Using storage bins or containers.

Not only will you be able to find items easier, you may be surprised at how much extra space you create in your house.  Great places to apply this goal include:

  • Bedroom closets.
  • Bathroom cupboards or medicine cabinets.
  • Linen and shoe closets.

Create a Filing System

Even with more and more of the world going paperless, there are still many important documents that need to be filed somewhere in your home.  Instead of cramming different papers in different drawers and then tearing everything apart to try to find that one necessary document, create a filing system.  For this system to be effective, make sure to label each folder and put each paper in its proper spot immediately.

Utilize Your Space

Sometimes, all you need is more space to effectively organize a room.  If this is the case, look to create or open up space by getting imaginative.  Ways to generate space include:

  • Using a closet organizer or install shelving.
  • Creating or installing shelving on open walls in bedrooms, bathrooms or living rooms.

Instead of moving items to the garage or relocating them to areas where there is more space, try to organize and declutter your home by creating space and organizing the contents of each room in their room or origin.

These are just a few ways to help you achieve your New Year’s resolution of home organization.  Remember, an organized home is a less stressful and chaotic home to live in.  If you would like other tips on how to organize your home or are interested in the many different moving services that we offer, please contact us today.
