Today I’m going to share with you 17 organization tips that will help you to maintain an organized house:

Organization Tip #1: Get rid of as much stuff as possible. Make yourself a goal of filling up 10 boxes to take to Goodwill (or 3 boxes, or whatever).

Organization Tip #2: Use small open boxes to organize art supplies in a drawer.

Organization Tip #4: Making a list of to-do’s the night before will make you more productive the next day.

Organization Tip #5: Do the hardest thing on your list first. Then you will feel relieved and have energy to do the rest.

Organization Tip #6: I saw a shelf on a wall at a bed and breakfast last year, with large hooks underneath. I would love to put one in my bathroom to put towels and bathrobes on. (Great use of wall space!)

Organization Tip #7: Contain toys in bins. My newest bin is the nerf bin.

Organization Tip #8: Instead of fumbling with mismatched food containers, get a set that stacks. It takes up way less space in your cupboard, and it looks neater in your refrigerator.

Organization Tip #9: Use a fishing tackle box to organize toys with small parts.

Organization Tip #10: Eat protein in the morning. You will be a lot more productive with what you want to accomplish.

Organization Tip #11: My husband likes collecting Wii games for the kids. Pretty soon Wii stuff was all over the living room. I decided to organize all the games and accessories in a drawer under the TV. You could also store it all in a basket beside the couch.

Organization Tip #12: Roll up your jeans to fit more in your drawer. Find out more ways to organize your bedroom here.

Organization Tip #13: Always look for furniture with built-in storage space. Find out how to organize a window seat here.

Organization Tip #14: If you use something with small drawers for craft supplies, make sure that all your kids are above age 4. Otherwise the buttons (or whatever) will end up all over the floor. For younger children, I recommend a tackle box, which I show you in my “Organizing for a Fun Homeschool” video.

Organization Tip #15: If you place all the mittens and snow caps in a drawer from oldest to youngest in your family, everyone will be able to find theirs when heading out the door for some fun sledding.

Organization Tip #16: Go through your DVD’s and only keep the ones you absolutely love. Store the remaining ones in a drawer near the TV.

Organization Tip #17: My daughter loves a wooden tool caddie loaded with her favorite art supplies.

    Great tips! I especially like that you included protein in the morning. Doesn’t seem like an “organizing” tip on the surface, but it really does help.

    The fishing tackle box for small parts of toys great! My step son has the same circuits and he struggles keeping them organized.

  4. My biggest one is needing to get rid of things, especially when it comes to homeschool curriculum, books, and resources!

    One of my favorite tips is to break big tasks up into small ones so they are less overwhelming.
