Getting organized makes life so much easier, no matter what size your home is. When living in small spaces organizing becomes a priority. To thoroughly enjoy every inch of your tiny home you are going to have to clean up. These organizing tips will help you tidy up fast.
1. Use storage furniture.
This seems like a no-brainer but it is very important to remember this when you have limited space. Furniture with storage built in is a must. Always look for multiple functioning pieces that have drawers, shelfs or dividers. This will help reduce visual clutter.

2. Closet Savvy.
Use clear bins to hold shoes, belts, scarves, etc. Add labels to the boxes for extra storage so you can remember what put in it by labeling it. Keep all clothes either hanging or in drawers but in most cases, you want it out of sight.

3. Hook it up!
Add decorative hooks by the bathroom, kitchen, or front door to keep keys, hats, towels, jackets and scarves out of the way.

4. Divide it.
Add drawer dividers to keep the inside of drawers organized. I know everyone has a junk drawer you just throw everything in. This will help you find things better and stay organized easier.

5. Give it a home.
If you no longer use or have a need for any item in your home including clothing get rid of it! Give it away, donate it, sell it, recycle it, or throw it away if you have to. Only keep what you really really like and use.

I tend to like totally clear storage containers (not the foggy white ones). These are beginning to be made in larger sizes, somewhat like the bins you find inside a fridge. However, they are still pricy. Also, rather than “nesting” inside one another, since they generally have things inside them and no longer need to next, but to stack, to have a larger bottom that becomes a lid the the container below it would be fabulous with a separate lid to be purchased IF needed. I like seeing what I have in my bins rather than labeling them. I’m a bit OCD with labels that don’t stick, or that are applied crookedly… Any ideas on this type of product? I literally camped out in a Container Store in White Plains NY back in December and still didn’t find what I was looking for. Oh, and, they are quite proud of their products! Ouch! Just because it’s a new idea doesn’t mean it should cost so much!
