Home Organization Tool Kit
The basis of any organizing scheme is having a designated place for everything to go. Everyone’s system is different, but here are a few ideas to get you thinking in the right direction. Consider it an organizational tool kit.Closet Storage System
Every closet should have some kind of storage system. These will vary according to what the closet is used for: Kid’s closets usually need more storage than adult closets, for example. You can find inexpensive storage options or you can go all out and buy a closet system.
Food Storage Bags
Zippered food storage bags have all kinds of great organizational uses, including holding small parts, extra batteries, your tween’s Silly Bands and more. They’re also handy around the kitchen for using as pastry bags (snip off a tiny corner) and for piping messy food fillings.
A set of wall pockets near the door where your family comes and goes the most can serve as way station for often-forgotten items like cell phones, mittens, signed report cards and more. Each family member has their own pocket that gets checked before they leave each morning. And each evening, it gets stocked for the following day.
Whether you choose a floor or wall mounted magazine rack depends on the space you have available, but if you get periodicals and like to save them, this is a must-have item. It keeps clutter at bay and you’ll always know where to find your latest issue.
