Simple Tips to Organize Your Home and Life
Image by christopersrsen
The task of organizing home at the start of every year gets daunting. There is a lot of stuff every year that you need to get rid of in order to make place for the new things. And then you get all the new stuff, the task of organizing it into the place, while making sure that #home #decoration and balance is not disturbed, remains to be a #challenge.
But then, there are always some ways you can organize your home without going through major hassle.
De-clutter on consistent basis
Considering a de-cluttering job only in January often leaves the homeowners left with a lot of items they shouldn’t have. The major reason is that we keep collecting a lot of items throughout a year; and reserving only a week to get rid of most of those items is a difficult job because ‘what to keep and what not to keep’ is a hard decision to make. Therefore, consider #de-cluttering throughout the year. There would be a lot of things that you get new and there would be a lot of things that you keep using from one year to the next. Hence, you may find out with a little thinking work that you need to get rid of certain items after every month. When you de-clutter consistently, you actually save a lot of time in the end because you will not have to reserve a week to sell your items or donate them.
Think about the spaces in home
Always think about the way you can arrange things in your home. That would also require proper assessment of the place. Sometimes, it’s not the de-cluttering or #downsizing that you need in order to make a place organized and roomy. You just need to change the arrangements. Furniture placement, addition of extra closet, or putting things in the boxes and tagging them can be pretty helpful.
Focus on decoration that gives function
You may find it interesting that baskets, jars and vases can be used for decoration. Of course they are going to remain the places where you are going to keep your items. These items are usually colorful, so you just need to find proper spots to place them in order to keep them accommodated.
Don’t reserve a day in two weeks for cleaning and organizing. Distribute the task in days. This could be a job of 15 – 20 minutes only when you do it on daily basis. Furthermore, you will be able to think straight during the time when you clean.
Furniture with storage option
This one is pretty interesting. Your sofa is going to remain at the place where it is. But what if this #sofa can be opened from the top to allow the filling of inner box? This is exactly what you can do with the sofa having a storage option. Since a sofa is the living room element, you can place accessories related to living room in this storage area.

This is from a trip to a park, couple of years ago. I had found this little girl doll thing laying in the gutter, took her home, cleaned her up and took her along just to see,,,
The original is in color, ok, but not quite what it could be. After all this time, it hit me that this might be a good image for a momochrome treatment.
I started in Photoshop, worked that edit in Lightroom, and then that edit here on Flickr in Aviary…
Now I’m happy.
