Unless you are a professional organizer, it can be pretty tricky not to make the easiest organizing mistakes! Even if you think to yourself, “how hard can it be?” you can still make these easy mistakes. Let’s talk about what these mistakes are, and how you can fix them.
Easiest Organizing Mistakes
One of the easiest organizing mistakes people make is going out and dropping lots of money on organizing containers–before they organize the space. How do you know exactly what sort of containers will fit the space? What’s more, it isn’t necessary to spend money on containers. Use what you have first. A great place to start is all those shoe boxes!
You may be guilty of the next easiest organizing mistake and not even know it. Are your kitchen counters too clean? Where are the small appliances that you use every single day? It’s a mistake to think that everything has to be hidden away in your kitchen cabinets–especially if they’re crammed so full you can’t find what you need. Make space for the things you use daily on the countertop. That’s what it’s for!
If you don’t organize your cords, you’re making an organizing mistake. It might not seem like such a big deal, but it really impacts how clean and organized your home feels. Organize and hide away those cords, and you’ll be amazed at the difference!
Can you guess what’s next on the list of the easiest organizing mistakes? It is none other than not keeping an organized entry space for your home! An organized entry space provides a place to drop your things when you come home. And I don’t mean just drop them in a pile. It gives you an necessary spot to store and organize all your coming-and-going needs–keys, boots, jackets, etc. An organized entryway is also the perfect spot to welcome guests into your home!
