Deep Clean in the Spring, Organize in the Fall!
Command Center: I actually did this a while back. I purchased a wall hanging organizer that has a place for a calendar, message board, and pockets for each member of my family. This gives us a central location to see what’s going on in order to plan our busy schedules. It also eliminates counter clutter as there is a space for everyone’s mail, papers, etc.
Over-the-door Storage: There are so many great options for over-the-door storage! This is an organization method I have used for years. The over-the-door shoe organizers (with pockets) are the best. You can use them for many items other than shoes. When my daughter was younger, I would use one of these to house Barbie dolls, hair bows, and other small items in addition to shoes. They are also great in a kitchen for storing cleaning products. These inexpensive organizers can also be great for housing crayons, markers, jewelry, cosmetics and more. The ones with clear pockets are best as it makes your items more easily seen for easy access.

The Linen Closet: Although I still can’t fold a fitted sheet neatly to save my life, I have figured out a way to keep my sheets organized more neatly in my linen closet. Once you have folded your sheets, simply stuff the set into one of the pillow cases for storage. Additionally, you may want to use different bins or baskets to separate sheet sets by size. This will leave your linen closet looking much neater and keep the tops, bottoms and pillow cases from getting separated.
Personally I believe we are products of our surroundings, and having a neat organized environment in which to live may contribute to a more organized life. Not to mention following through on these types of projects can be somewhat therapeutic and give one a great sense of accomplishment. Happy organizing!
