5 Tips to Help You Become Organized in 2024

Congratulations, we have officially made it through 2024! After everything that happened in 2023, it’s time to refresh your space and get organized.

If you struggle with organization, don’t worry – the truth is that everyone has to learn how to become organized. Once you understand the basic principles of organization, you can develop habits that you can use every day. Our designers have created five tips that you can start using to transform your organization in 2024. Read on to begin your journey to a more organized life.

1. Split Up Your Chores

To avoid becoming overwhelmed and to resist the urge to put off your chores, try to complete them in small increments throughout the week. Don’t waste your weekends doing tasks like vacuuming and scrubbing when you could be spending time with friends and family. You can even split up chores with other members of your household to make things easier.

2. Put Your Things Away Immediately

This is a challenging tip to implement right away! No matter how tired or sleepy you may feel, try to clean up and put things away as soon as possible. Instead of throwing your jacket onto the floor or bed, take an extra 30 seconds to put it in your closet. You’ll appreciate it later when you don’t have to spend an entire day cleaning up a week’s worth of mess.

3. Ensure Everything Has a Place

To make the previous tip easier, make sure all your belongings have a designated spot. This applies to your home, car, or even your desk at work. When everything has a specific place, you’ll spend less time looking for things and more time being productive and efficient.

4. Clean Out Your Junk Drawers

We all have those pesky drawers that become catch-alls for miscellaneous items. Take some time every few months to clean them out. Go through old mail, throw away old condiment packets, and find new homes for useful items.

5. Purge Items You No Longer Need

We’ve mentioned purging your belongings in previous blogs, but it’s particularly important to do so at the start of a new year. It’s officially “out with the old and in with the new” season! Every season, evaluate your closet, pantry, cabinets, toiletries, and other items, and get rid of things you no longer need or use. Purging your things will help you find what you need more easily and fill your spaces with things you truly love.

If you’re interested in taking your organization to the next level, consider investing in a custom closet system, mudroom, pantry, or home office cabinets for your family. At SpaceManager Closets, our designers are ready to help you create the perfect space and provide your family with ultimate organizational bliss.
