A Pantry is a important part of the kitchen that can store food, but if there is not a good system to the pantry, it can be very hard to find the food you want. Here are a few tips to keep the Pantry looking neat and clean.

  1. Organize the food based on the type of food such as putting all the pasta together, sauces, spices. and etc.
  2. Have all your emergency food for natural disasters in an easy place to access.
  3. Create labels for your food that is stored in clear containers so that you know what the content is.
  4. Clean out the Pantry and go through the the food and if it has been there for over 3 months, throw it out.

9 Tips for Organizing Your Home Office

 Binder Clips, Letter Holders, Drawer Organizers, and Pen/Pencil Containers

1. Binder Clips are an easy way to keep your home desk organized.

2. Letter Holders are great for sorting out paper as priority or not. You can also use letter holders for your mail that needs to be sorted out

3. Drawer Organizers can be put on top the desk with small stuff that needs a place to live.

4. Pen and Pencil Containers do not take up a lot of space and can keep those lose pens/pencils in one area.

Magazine File, Book Ends, Desktop Files, Dry Erase Boards

5. If you require magazines in the office, a magazine file is just the solution so that there is not a bin with a magazine collection.

6. Book Ends can keep books from falling over the place. If you have cats who like to knock everything down, book ends keep your books in place to prevent them being moved.

7. A Desktop File allows documents to be filed if you do not have any drawers that are on the desk.

8. Dry Erase Boards can allow you to stay organized with important tasks to complete throughout the day.

Charging Stations

How to Organize a Teacher’s Desk

As schools are back at school, teachers have a lot of paper to either ahnd-out, copy, grade, etc. We will try to keep them all organized over the summer year. Here are a few tips to get started:

  • Keep the desk looking clean and organized. You can have a pen holder with black, blue, and red inks. A Paper organizer for papers that are graded, not graded, or needs to be copied.
  • Throw out anything that is has not been in a couple of years. This will clear out the clutter that has been accumulated.
  • Organize the supply closet so it can be easy to find stuff for a class project. Such as: Keeping markers, crayons, and colored pencils in one area. Paper and Coloring Sheets together. Rulers, Compasses, and Protractors in one area.
  • Have a planner to schedule when to grade papers, return them, parent meeting, etc.

10 Tips For Organizing Your Closets

Found this interesting post on the CNN Living website titled 10 tips for organizing your closets. Everyone has their own way of organizing there closet…what kind of tips can you share with our readers?

Some people find it easy to wait until the season changes to make a change to their closet. Why not spend a little bit of time here and there organizing your closet space, apartment or home? If everyone would spend a little bit of time each day to clean bits, pieces and parts of their closet space we would find it a lot easier to stay organize. Why not start where all of the cluttering begins. Your closet!

Your closet is where you store all of your clothes, shoes and other useful things. If you take a look at your closet and see a disaster…no need to clean it all at once why not start in sections of your closet and move on to the next. Take it day by day, whenever it fits your schedule. For example you could start off by organizing your shoes for the type of season you’re in. You can store your summer sandals in a box and label it “summer sandals” and put that away in a storage space until the summer season comes around. By storing extra unnecessary clothing and footwear like shoes or coats/jackets you would see a major difference in your closet space. You will notice room you never thought you had. Check out some of these tips below and see if these organizing tips can help you.

Tip 1: Clear it out: Distinguish clothing and shoes that you wear and items that you need to get rid of. You can do this by the golden rule of closet organizing: If you haven’t worn it in a year, toss it.

Tip 2: If the shoe fits: If you are keeping your shoe boxes, label what is inside. We like the Post-it Durable Tabs because they offer a writable surface and are quick and easy to apply.

Tip 3: Measure up: Once you have whittled down your wardrobe, you need to assess the layout of your closet.

Tip 4: Get hung up: Invest in the right kind of hanger for the type of clothing you are hanging.

Tip 5: No sweat: Sort sweaters, T-shirts, and other folded clothing by color as well.

Tip 6: Eyes have it: Keep items you use frequently at eye level or below and items you rarely use higher up.

Tip 7: Seasonal change: It’s possible that no matter how much you try to edit and organize, you just have too much stuff to fit in your closet.

Tip 8: Linen closets: Store folded sets of bed linens inside one of the set’s pillowcases.

Tip 9: Storing table linens: Always clean and iron table linens after use.
