I told you in my last post about my love for organization and planning. If you missed it you can read that here. I have been working on several projects and decided that it may be fun (and hopefully beneficial) to start a series on organization! I love finding new ideas and options for organizing my home, work space, makeup, planners, and everything else!
Below are a few pins and ideas I found via Pinterest. Some of these I currently use and others are just fun options. I will be doing room by room posts for this series in addition to other fun tips and tricks. Check out my pinterest for more ideas!
I'm sure you could guess that I would start here! I love to have my makeup sorted and organized because its much easier to find what I am looking for! I currently use clear acrylic storage from muji and a few other brands I have found along the way. The Muji drawers are my favorite! You can find those on their website here! There are other options available, and you can also find acrylic style storage at your local Marshalls and Ross!
In addition to regular makeup storage I keep my brushes stored in clear glass containers with colorfill (they are almost bead like) that I picked up at either Michaels or AC Moore. Mine are similar to the one pictured (I just have several containers lol). This will give you an idea!
(The brushes are not mine, the storage picture is mine. This is before I rearranged and finished everything. Stay posted for that tour!)
Ever since I was young I liked to keep my clothes organized by color. Not only does it look pretty and clean, but it is much easier to find what you are looking for! If you know you want to wear a specific pink top then you go to the area that is pink and there it is! I use the retail color method (roygbiv). You can do this for books displayed on shelves too.
Drawers sometimes tend to get cluttered. We all have that one junk drawer, but not all drawers need to look like the one containing every random and unused item . There are some great drawer organizers, or you can be crafty and use shoe boxes for storage! Here are a few ideas! I also like the idea of folding t-shirts like the picture below! This makes it easier to find what you are looking for compared to traditional folding and stacking.
4) Bathroom Storage
There are so many ways to organize a bathroom! I'm not going to go into full detail here because we are currently remodeling our bathroom, but here are a few ideas from pinterest! It is really all about the storage in my opinion! Stay updated for a full post.
This is another room we just recently renovated. The organization part is still not quite finished. There are several ideas we are still working on. I did do a "café" theme similar to the one pictured. I didn't display the coffee cups like this, but it is a great idea! Here are a few fun storage and organization ideas.
The laundry room is another room we need to attack! This area in our house is the worst currently. We have been going room by room and this area will be last. We have an older house, so there isn't a specific room designated as a laundry room. Our laundry area is in the garage by the kitchen door. I am still debating doing a mud room style area, but shelves and storage are a must! Here are a few cute laundry room ideas. I love the use of several similar baskets for sorting. That makes laundry loads much easier!
The Rest of the House
Since I decided to start a series on organizing I will be going room by room. This will include bedrooms, closets, the kitchen, kitchen drawers, linen closets, etc. We have a lot of work to do! Stay tuned for these posts and all the other ones I have planned!
Love and Hugs!
