Tip on Closet Organization

Closet World asked Twitter and Facebook users on June 27, 2011 to share some organizing tips. Here is our featured Twitter Mention about organization.

@ClosetWorldCA Hang all your hangers backwards to start. At the end of a year whatever is still facing backwards (never worn) gets donated.

From @organizingwithe

This is a great tip, because in one year you might be amazed to find how many clothes you could be donating to Goodwill or Salvation Army. People in need are benefiting from used clothes at a reasonable price so that low income families can afford clothes.

If you have any more tips, you would like to share let Closet World know in the comments below, Tweet Us, or post on our Facebook Wall.

Laundry Room Tips

The laundry room tends to be very disorganized or possibly neglected at times. We can make adjustments in our lifestyles so we can become more organized in all aspects of life. It may take some dedicated time to create a lifestyle that is organized, but all we have to do is take 15 minutes out of our day to re-organize the laundry room. Keep repeating the process until you have a nice and tidy laundry room.

Tips:

1.) Create a drawing of where things should go in the laundry room.

2.) Tape the drawing to the wall to remind yourself that you have a plan and intend to keep. It may help to use it at reference when you to start the process to becoming organized.

3.) Take ten minutes a day organizing the laundry room.

4.) Keep making sure that the laundry room stays organized.

So many Shoes. . .Some tips to try and get organized with shoes

We all know that at some point, girls just have way too many shoes at some point and the most common problem is that all the shoes will not even fit inside the closet. I am sure that we all need to make some more room. Here are some simple solutions to solve your problem.

Tips:
Designate an area that will be designated to all your shoes that you own.

Build Shelves within the closet to maximize area in your closet

Design a shoe rack for the specific types of shoes you have

These are just a few tips, but if you are looking at putting in a brand new closet that would be bigger, We would love to help you get started on that. A custom closet can enable you to design a closet to your needs and that will best suite your life.

“Man Cave”

More often than not, a garage is being used to store tools or anything else that seems important for backyard maintenance. It can also be known as your husband’s second home. We usually don’t care how messy the garage is since usually you will be the only person using it and no one else will have to see it. In case, you do love your garage a lot, I suggest getting organized. All your tools should be arranged by type and probably having a systematic method would be good. If you have a car that you have been working on I suggest keeping all those parts and tools handy so you don’t have to go digging for the tool you had a week ago and have no idea where you left it and in the end we tend to buy another tool. With the tool collection only adding up, it is time to make a change.

Empty out the garage and arrange all parts so you know exactly what you have in stock. Ask yourself what you need from the tools department and sell the extras if they are in good condition. If you are missing a few tools, go ahead and buy what you need. Now that you have all your tools out and organized by the type of tools, consider redoing the garage for a customized look. We put your needs first , but also making sure that you can afford the garage. As soon as the shelving is in, you can move all your tools back in with the most unique organization system put into place with a designer and your needs of a garage.

Ladies, if you are not a sport’s fan, turn your garage into a “man cave.” You can let the guys come over and have a sports night without having to be involved. At the same time, you could have a girls night in the house, while the guys are watching their favorite sports team game.

You can create a spacier garage by putting in place a new garage with Closet World using a customized organized system based on your personal needs. Closet World has designers who are here to help on your next garage endeavor.

De-Clutter Your Life

We are at times can get a lot of clutter of unwanted junk laying around the house. A simple way to stay clutter free would be to put away things right after it is used in its rightful spot. Make sure you assign a home for everything and if it is an item that is never used be sure to pack it up in a box and put into storage. Create an organizational system for books and movies if they are stored in the living room.

The bedroom is a good example where clutter can be at its worst. If there are clothes laying around be sure to pick them up and put it away or in the hamper. If you read at night, make a special home for the books you enjoy reading. Organize your clothes in the closet by pants, shirts, jackets, and etc. Organization is key when it comes to the bedroom.

If you have an office, it is so easy to become stuck in the clutter. It can be never ending and daunting. The bills can just stack up and will never be put in its place. A solution is to have a file for bills that are marked with paid and unpaid so that you know what needs to be done. Organize your desk to the best of your ability; it only takes a lamp, a container for pens and pencils, and a computer to have the simplest organization to have on a desk.

What do you do to keep the de-clutter? Are there any tips you can share for having a clean desk, bedroom, or living room? If you simply do not have time to take on the clutter call a professional who can help you live a clutter free world.

College Moving Day

Have you tried moving from college or moving your child back home? More than likely your child does not know how to pack the proper way, which ends up with you having heavy boxes, especially if it involves books. We all should enact on a process for packing meaning keeping “like” things together so it easier to unpack and mark the boxes with what is in it. If you know what needs to be in storage already put it in a box marked so when you have to move again.

You will have to sit there and go through a lot of stuff. Most of the time, you will just end up with doubles of everything, which will make that much more clutter around the house. Generally all of the kitchen stuff will end up in a box and will not be touched until your child decides to move out of the house.  A move is also the perfect time to go through clothes and get rid of the clothes that are no longer worn. Donating unwanted clothes to a charity is a great way to do social good and benefit another person.

When you move back home, you have to get settled and organized. Go through your clothes for second time in case you left clothes at home and anything unused donate it to charity. Taking everything out of your closet would be a good idea. Evaluate everything and decide what can be put into storage and what can be put into the closet. As you are doing this create a system that will work for yourself to become organized. Once that system is created start putting everything back into the closet.

Tips for Organizing:

  1. Clothes- any clothes that you have that you no longer use or may not fit you anymore get rid of it. Donate your clothes to charity to do something good,
  2. Figure out what else is your closet- if there is anything that you are not using pack it into a box and put in the attic or a storage unit.
  3. System- make sure you have a system for everything in your closet. It is important to make sure it is a system that you comfortable with. Always put things back in their rightful spot after using something.

I would love to hear what you to do to keep your closet organized.

 

Creating a Meditation Space

daily meditation practice is something many of us value. If you’ve practiced meditation for awhile, you know that the first requirement is a little privacy – a safe and quiet place where you won’t be disturbed.

For a lot of folks, this can be done in any part of their home, but if you’ve got kids, house mates, or share your boudoir with a partner or spouse, then creating a meditation room may not be a luxury but a necessity. Here are a few tips on how you can simply and affordably create a meditation room no matter what kind of space you’re in.

1. Keep it Simple

You don’t need to decorate your space with elaborate art and sculpture. The basics will do just fine: a clean, quiet space that’s uncluttered and has a cushion or chair that suits you best.

2. Beauty and Meaning

With number 1 (above) in mind, you can still make your meditation room look nice. Find objects, fabrics and symbols you may have in other parts of the house and re-assign them to your new space. They should have meaning to you and not be too energetically ‘noisy’ to be distracting.

3. Smells Good

Some incense, potpourri or an essential oil candle with meditative scents are perfect for your contemplative time.

4. Sounds Good

You can add a small sound system, though it’s not necessary. Some people like to meditate to soft, soothing music or chants. Others prefer silence or the sounds of nature outside there window (assuming there is nature outside their window). But especially if you live in a noisy city, southing sounds played at low volume can really help you get into that tranquil, meditative state. Another option is a set of small chimes by an open window, or blown by a small fan.

5. When there’s no more Room at the Inn

Maybe you simply don’t have a separate room you can dedicate solely to meditation. Fear not! There’s still a way … Using fabric or an old fashioned dressing screen in the corner of a room will do. The important thing is to make it your space, and a dedicated space that remains undisturbed and unused except for meditation. Ask anyone else you share your home with to honor that space and stay out unless invited.
