Storing The Right Way

How To Organize Your House

by Sophia Meyer

Have you become frustrated because your house is just plain unorganized? Perhaps you realize that you keep it clean as a whistle, but that you are always looking for things because they don't actually have a place to be stored. If you have decided to do a major organization job in your home, here are some ideas that might help you.

Make It A Family Affair - Have a meeting where you explain to your family that you need each person's help to get the house in order. Set a day and make sure that no other appointments or engagements are scheduled for that day. At your family meeting, present a chart that shows each of the chores that will need to be completed and ask for volunteers to do each chore. For example, if your DVDs need to be organized, write that down and encourage one of your kids to do that job. Big jobs, like organizing the attic or the garage may take more than one person to complete the job. Another good idea is to form teams for other areas. Pair little kids with older siblings or with a parent.

The Big Day - Start early! Help your kids to understand that the earlier you start the organization of your home, the earlier you'll be finished for evening fun. Ask each person to go through his or her own personal belongings. Have a place for items that will go to a charity organization and another place for items that will later be placed in a yard sale. Give everybody a sturdy plastic bag for garbage. Arrange for a charity to pick things up as soon as possible so nobody will be tempted to retrieve things and so your excess things will no longer be taking up space.

Proper Storage - Be sure to provide good storage for belongings. For example, transparent boxes for shoes will be perfect for organizing bedroom closets. A long, flat box that fits under beds would be the perfect place to keep memorabilia. If you've come to the conclusion that you just don't have enough storage space in your home for all your stuff, rent a storage unit. Don't worry about the safety of your belongings. They'll be kept in a climate-controlled unit and good storage companies provide twenty-four hour surveillance. You'll be able to access your belongings any time you want to. For instance, if you have the opportunity to go on a last minute fishing trip, you can pick your gear up at your own convenience.

It's helpful to write down things that you don't use often. For example, if you put your huge serving platter under one of the beds, you might need a reminder of where you placed it.
