Small Stuff

Starting with small stuff gets you motivated to do more. You’ll finish the project quickly and feel compelled to do another one. Our favorite small organization projects include kitchen drawers and table/countertops. Bins, dividers, and other supplies can make this even easier.

Evaluate Your Space

Much like the “Spark Joy” movement, you need to remove anything you don’t use regularly or love so much it would break your heart to let go of it. Touch everything, and decide whether to keep it or not while it’s in your hands. This is particularly important for spaces like closets, cabinets, and bureau drawers. Donate anything you’re not keeping and say hello to your newly organized space.

Organize and Label

Using bins, canisters, tubs, baskets, etc. organize what’s left after you’ve evaluated your space and touched everything. Label all of it. But be careful not to be too specific. Go with “dry grains” instead of “rice” or “nuts” instead of “cashews.” Labels and containers ensure you’ll know exactly where to put things and make it easy to maintain the new organization you’ve just created.
