This home project has been featured a few times recently and over the years, which is not surprising to me.
The impact having organized kitchen cabinets has made on our every day lives is literally priceless.
My tips on how to do this effectively and efficiently will have you tackling this project before lunch this Saturday.
Don't wait any longer! It is such a game changer and you'll feel like you accomplished a huge task.
So if you do no other home organization projects on this list, do this one.
Next on the list is organizing your seasonal decor.
When we added our bathroom to the basement a few years ago, we opted to have a storage area dedicated to the seasonal decor.
Now it's not perfect and doesn't have any fancy shelving (yet), but it is highly functional.
Save yourself the time and aggravation each season by organizing this space now while the Christmas decorations are rearing their heads to be put away.
How often do you walk in and out of your master closet?
My guess is at least twice a day, if not more.
The amount of angst this small little closet used to cause me was totally avoidable.
This is one of those projects that I would section off an entire weekend because this is a two-parter.
I tackled this project while I was pregnant with my first and while my husband was away for a few days so I could lay everything out in various piles and not worry that I was infringing on his space.
I started by decluttering the closet, which by itself was an amazing feeling of accomplishment.
I then set out to organize it effectively.
The best part of this home organization project is that I couldn't afford to get any fancy systems or spend a ton on organizing items, but it was so worth the effort to finally know what I had and how to access it.
You can find all the items I did use in my organizing the master closet post.
Another important home organizational project is the dreaded linen closet.
Depending on how large your's is, this may not take a top spot, but it definitely did for me.
You have to go and see the before photos of this linen closet to truly appreciate it.
Not only does it feel amazing to tell guests where to find things and not be completely embarrassed when they open the closet, but now that we have kids, we are in and out of this closet daily.
Nothing better than reaching in and finding exactly what you need instantly.
This project was part of my quick-win series, so yes I have other ideas as to how to make this pretty along with its functionality.
But, if you're looking for a project that will only take you a couple hours, organizing the linen closet is worth it.
Entry/Coat Closet (and everything else)
Last, but not least, let's talk about the entry/coat closet.
We don't have the luxury of having a beautiful mudroom with gorgeous cubbies and a place for everything in our home like you see all over Pinterest.
But, we do have a closet with a door that can be shut lol.
With that came the age-old ‘throw it in and slam the door' method.
And it was driving me absolutely crazy.
So last on my list is not only a post to help you organize your linen closet, but I also includes my tried-and-true 11 tips to ensuring the time spent on any of your home organizational projects will last longer than a week.
This is a must read for any organizational project you'll be tackling this season of purging.
