Entrance

As soon as someone walks into your house they have an immediate impression based on what they see. It's up to you to make it a good one! You also want to feel welcomed and relaxed when coming home, not stressed or overwhelmed by clutter as soon as you walk through the door. Here's a list of things to include in your entrance/ hallway:

Door matt, inside and out - you don't want dirty shoes coming inside on your clean floors

Hooks, coat tree, or hangers in a closet - so coats can be hung up and not take up space where they shouldn't be

Bench - the storage possibilities are endless, store your extra shoes, hats mitts and gloves, pet accessories, you name it! anything you want out of sight

Shelves - make use of the height of your walls, install shelving and use baskets to organize items easy to grab and go

Decorations - candles, plants, pictures, wall decals, these are some of my go-to items to spice up any room or space

Command Center

In my kitchen I have a command center, which I think is essential, it keeps my whole life organized! If you don't have a lot of space, all you need is a small corner or an area of the wall. Here's what I use in mine:

Calender

Whiteboard

Blackboard

Décor - something nice to look at, cute pictures and inspiring phrases

Bins for paper work - I use magazine holders, nailed to the wall and I can put receipts, mail and any important information to keep it organized and I know where to find it!

Kitchen

Labels - I keep everything labeled and in it's own container, I like to have everything matching too

Baskets and containers - keeps everything in it's place so you know where to find it

Make use of every space - use magazine racks and rods on the inside of cupboard doors for easy access frequently used items such as tin foil, plastic wrap, garbage bags

Use racks and shelves in the cupboards to stack plates and cups and have room for more

Bathroom

Bathrooms are usually one of the smallest rooms in the house, yet they can get cluttered so quickly. Here's some tips to avoid that!

Use baskets and shelves to store everything and make more floor space

Have individual baskets for small or frequently used items such as qtips, cotton pads, Kleenex etc.

Use plastic baskets for cleaning supplies and more storage under the sink

Hang towels on racks behind the door to make more wall space

Install a hand towel ring on the wall or side of counter to free up counter space and feel less cluttered

Keep the counter clear (and sanitary) by storing toothbrushes, toothpaste etc in drawers

Décor!! Who says you can't decorate a bathroom, it's supposed to be a place to relax and unwind so add some pictures or wall decals/ stickers

Bedroom & Closet

Use a multi-use organizer to store your makeup and cosmetics

Create a space for getting ready, use a desk and drawers to keep everything in its place, add any décor that makes you happy, mirrors, candles etc

Use lots of shelves that fill the whole closet and cubbies with baskets to organize all your clothes, it's easy for this to get unorganized and cluttered so keep everything in its place and you'll thank yourself later!
