Have A Place For Everything And Put Everything In Its Place

You may have heard of this saying before because it is such a great saying regarding the organization. But how does it play out in practice, and how can you achieve this productivity nirvana? It all begins with making space and setting up specific areas for your belongings. This might mean creating a drawer for your sunglasses and any authentic replacements you might have like lenses or frames etc. In addition, you can purchase or build item-specific storage like shoes and jewelry (more on that later). Once you have everything set up, the idea is to ensure you place everything back into its place once you have finished using it. By doing this, you will be able to maintain a cleaner home and make it easier to find things in the future.

Use Vacuum Seal Bags To Store Clothes

Clothing vacuum seal bags are bags that are used to store clothes in a sealed state. They are typically used by people who travel often but are also ideal for those of you who have limited space and want to keep your belongings fresh and ready to go. They are made of thick polythene and come in various sizes to suit every circumstance. They work by placing your clothing inside, sealing them up, and using a vacuum cleaner to suck out the air, creating an airtight seal. This has several benefits over conventional storage, including:

  • Reduces the chances of mold growing on your clothing
  • You can fit more items inside, saving space
  • They are cube-shaped, making them easier to stack and store
  • It makes moving your belongings around easier
  • They enable you to stash away seasonal clothing when not in use

Sort Through Your Items And Declutter If Necessary

Clutter is the enemy of productivity and organization. However, it is an unfortunate consequence of modern life that almost everyone has too many things. Nonetheless, you can quickly remedy this by spending time decluttering and removing items you never use. You can do this by creating three separate piles:

  1. Keep: This pile will include everything you are sure you want to keep. However, you should go through it several times to be sure.
  2. Maybe: The maybe pile is for items you have difficulty deciding whether to keep or discard. You can return to it later once you’ve completed the first round to double-check it.
  3. Give away; These items are those destined to be given away to a worthy cause because you know that you’ll never use them again.

Regarding the things you will discard, you should check which charities or thrift shops can accept them so at least they go to a worthy cause.

Get A New Set Of Clothing Hangers

You are probably wondering how this could possibly help you to organize your possessions. However, if you are like most, you have probably got a closet full of random hangers like the ones that are meant for trousers or those cheap flimsy options that came with your purchase. Does this sound right? If so, you will be shocked at how much a set of new hangers can make a difference. They let you keep your clothing in good shape and help you slide them around more easily on the rack. It might sound simple, but the humble hanger can profoundly affect your ability to keep your stuff at its best.

Consider Making A Jewelry Rack For Lose Items 

If you enjoy switching up your style regularly, you probably have a makeup table full of loose items taking up space and wreaking havoc on your ability to stay sane. The solution comes in the form of a rack to hang your things on when not in use. You can make one yourself using some old screen door netting or other materials to hang earrings and small poles for your necklaces and rings. Obviously, the best option is to put your jewelry away after you have used it, but in some cases, this might not be practical, so this might be a good alternative.

If you want to organize your clothes and accessories, the best way is to use the space you already have. However, by introducing these tips into your life, you’ll find that space becomes much larger and more usable. From putting everything in its place to buying new hangers, there are lots of things you can do that will make a significant difference in how you organize your belongings.
