How to Organize Your Home in 4 Easy Steps (or boxes!)

Written by: Laurie Malseed, Franchisee

As I ring in the new year, I want a fresh start in my home. It seems like in every room of my home there is at least one, if not more, piles that I am just waiting to “get to.”

I’ve read several “how-to get organized” columns in the past and always think that bits and pieces of them are great, but they often complicate things for me. I have 3 small children and no time. While I’m organizing, they’re making a mess. While I’m cleaning their mess, they’re undoing the 8 piles of whatever I just organized. As if organizing a house isn’t bad enough!

My challenge: Come up with a quick, easy, system that would make an overwhelming room (or closet, or cabinet) more manageable, and less emotionally stressful.

“A place for everything and everything in it’s place.”

Look at the simple mantra, “a place for everything and everything in it’s place.” Imagine if your home truly had a place for everything. You could simply take some time (not a ton of time) and walk around and put it all away. Boom. But that’s the problem. We don’t all have a place for everything!
