It’s been said that keeping your spaces clean and organized is a sure fire way to keep your mind calm and at peace. It makes perfect sense, because seeing things in order makes it feel like you are in control of your life. Organizing your spaces also makes you more productive and overall, happier. (At least in my experience!) Anyway, one of my personal favorite things to do is to spend hours on Instagram and Pinterest just devouring as much home and office organization content I can. Here, let me share with you some photos for some organization inspiration and tips we can all use:
1. Clear kits for your essentials
Keep things you always need in clear kits so you won’t forget about them. This tip is really useful for organizing your bag essentials, especially when traveling,
2. Medicine nook
Having a little space for your medicines and medical supplies is an easy way to keep track of everything have. No need to panic when something happens, because you can easily spot what’s already there.
3. Loose photos and prints
These days, it’s rare to have physical photo albums. Here’s a trick I found from @neatobsessions on how to keep and organize all your loose photos.
4. Hair accessories drawer
I don’t know about you, but I always can’t seem to find a hair tie or hair pin whenever I need one, even when I’m 100 percent sure that I have a ton of them in my collection. Check out how satisfying this hair accessories drawer is:
5. School supplies
Do you have an obsession with school supplies? (I do!) To fix this problem, laying out what you have neatly could help—you’ll be reminded just how much you have already on hand and that you don’t need other cute supplies just because they were cheap.
6. Cord Organization
Entangled cords are a stressful sight—but also a very dangerous one. Segregate your cords properly so they stay in shape and last longer.
7. Sanitation basket
Keep all your sanitizing products in one basket for your whole house to see, that way you can also keep track of what you have and what you’re running low on.
8. Marie Kondo method folded clothes
9. Skincare station
At this point, we all have multi-step skincare routines for mornings and nights. Put your products in one container but separate the a.m. and p.m. products to make your skincare routine quicker. (This is really helpful if you repeat certain products for a.m. and p.m.!)
10. Accessories space
If you have extra space under your closet, you can put organizers to hold your accessories—like belts and bangles—and perfumes. You’ll never forget these before you walk out the door again!
11. Beauty closet
If you’re blessed with a huge space that can house your makeup and skincare collection, lay out your products neatly, making sure each thing has its own spot. Now, you’ll know when something is missing!
12. Work desk
If you’re working from home, have a dedicated work space so you won’t have to work on your bed. Keep it clutter-free as much as possible.
