How To Organize Your New Home

Posted on July 30, 2015 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

When moving into a new home, there’s one thing that many people dread: unpacking. All of those boxes of stuff seem like an unending, daunting task. However, it’s the perfect opportunity to take some time to organize everything you have. It’s much easier to do it now and you’ll be so glad you did it later down the line. We have some tips for you that will make your organizing go quickly, smoothly and easily.

  • When you’re first starting out, you need to make sure that you have a game plan. Make a list of all the stuff that you have and where you would like them to go. The more planning that you do before hand, the easier it will be when you’re actually doing it.
  • While you’re in the planning stages, take some time and go from room to room to plan out where you want everything. This will make it easier to figure out where stuff goes  when you start actually unpacking your boxes.
  • Organizing is a great time to go through your things and see all the things that you need. If you find something when you’re going through your stuff that you don’t think you’ll use or don’t really like, just get rid of it. You probably won’t miss it.
  • When putting stuff away, try to make the most effective use of your space that you can. Areas such as your closet and the space under your bed can be your best friend if you use it wisely.
  • When organizing, remember that you have to use different methods depending on what room you’re in. You wouldn’t organize kitchen utensils the same way you would organize your clothes would you?
  • If you’re having trouble figuring out where to put everything, lay out everything you have in a large space and first organize it by type. When you see everything you have, it’ll be much easier to figure out where to put it.

Organization doesn’t have to be hard if you do it properly. By following these tips, you’ll have your house turned into a perfectly organized paradise in no time!
