    Tips for Organizing Your Home

    Finding a place for all your belongings can be challenging. That’s why our dedicated Beaverton movers have created a list of tips for organizing your home. There is no need to go through this process alone. Enlist our Portland moving company for all your relocation needs.

    1. Take everything out of the space

    The first step to organizing your home is to take everything out of the space. Each room is going to look worse than when you started, but our Portland residential movers promise it gets worse before it gets better. Often times it’s easier to start with a blank slate instead of a room full of clutter. Clearing out each space allows you to assess the situation and declutter as needed quickly.

    1. Reduce clutter

    Begin by purging everything you own! Well, maybe not everything. But take the time to reduce clutter and get rid of the items you haven’t used in a while. If you find an item that you haven’t used in the past 6-12 months, it might be time to donate or throw it away, depending on its condition. The more you declutter and purge, the less you will have to organize in your home.

    1. Group similar items

    Another great way to organize your home is by grouping together similar items. In each room, find duplicates or related items and store them in the same area. Why keep your spices in separate places throughout the kitchen when you can store them all together in the same spot? What about your wardrobe? There is no need to have a mixture of clothing items in one dresser drawer.

    Keep all of your socks and underwear in one drawer, shirts in another, and so forth. Finding what you need will be a lot easier when the items are stored in a way that makes sense.

    1. Utilize baskets and bins

    A great way to get rid of clutter in your home is by utilizing baskets and bins. Maximize your space by adding baskets and bins instead of having items all over the ground. By storing your belongings in coordinating containers, there will always be a place for everything, helping you maintain a house that is organized, clean and well-kept.

    1. Train yourself to put away your belongings

    An organized home ultimately comes down to practicing good habits. Train yourself to put away your belongings in their rightful spots, and soon it will become second nature. Learn to get in the habit of putting things back where they belong right after you finish using them. You can also teach your kids to practice the same good habits.

    If you are using a specific cookbook, make sure you place it back where it belongs after you use it. Ensure your kids do the same with their sports equipment or art supplies. Ensure the whole family puts items away in their designated place instead of throwing them in any random spot.
