Life seems to go more smoothly when we stay organized. The Mansions McKinney Blog invites you to organize your apartment this month to help you stop wasting time searching for things when you need them. We will be sharing a few ideas and tips in today’s post to help you with your organization efforts.


Clear the Clutter

One way to organize your home is to get rid of the things you don’t need. Take some time to go through your apartment and throw away or donate what you no longer need or use. Get rid of unused pots and pans, uneaten or expired food storage items, and unused or worn out clothes. As you do so, you’ll be surprised at how clean and clear your home is after you’ve donated or gotten rid of that excess.


Use a Hanging Shoe Rack

Put the space on the inside of your closet door to use by hanging one of these shoe organizers to avoid clutter and hunting the floor of your closet for your favorite pair of shoes. Organize your shoes by color or style. Hanging shoe organizers don’t have to be used for just shoes either; they are great for storing jewelry and other accessories as well!


Use Hanging Door Organizers

A similar idea to hanging shoe racks, hanging door organizers help maximize space in closets, pantries, and cabinets. Hanging door organizers come in all different varieties and can be used to store shoes, towels, food and spices, and so many more items.


Use Hidden Storage

Part of an organized home is making sure that everything is in its proper place. Loose items are an eyesore and cause you unnecessary stress in finding a suitable place to put it. Consider getting furniture and storage pieces that hide what you’re storing, like an ottoman. Hiding your stored items away gives your home a cleaner look, free of clutter.


Use a Pegboard

Utilize wall space with a pegboard! A pegboard can be a great space for storing and organizing tools, crafting supplies, jewelry, and more. Get a few ideas for how to use a pegboard for storage from The Family Handyman’s 11 tips on how to organize anything with a pegboard.
