1 - Labels
It’s a real pain in the backside when you’re trying to find something and opening up various cabinets, cupboards, and drawers all over your house. You know what you’re looking for, and you know you put it away somewhere, you just can’t remember where! A very easy way to combat this organisational issue is to label things. Specifically, label drawers and cupboards in your home so you know what’s inside them. You could have a drawer labelled ‘cutlery’ or one labelled ‘tools.' You’ll save so much time when you go looking for stuff, it keeps you so organised. Imagine you need a hammer to bang in a nail on a wall, all you’ll have to do is look for your drawer labeled ‘tools, ’ and it will be in there. Plus, this kind of works both ways as well. If you buy anything new, you’ll know the best place to keep it based on your labeled storage places!

2 - Filing Cabinets

If you’re like me, then your home probably gets filled up with lots of paper clutter through the mail. Sometimes, you have important letters and documents that need to be kept safe. If you’re not organised, all of these important documents and letters can get lost amongst the other junk that comes through your letterbox. Especially if you take the lazy way out and just open your mail and leave it on a table for the pile to build and build. For this reason, you should get some filing cabinets for your home. There are loads of options out there complete with heavy duty drawer runners to ensure they last for a long time. The great thing is, filing cabinets can also be quite stylish these days too. So, you can get the practical benefits of being more organized and having somewhere to store important paper documents, along with the style benefits of a nice accessory to make your family home look nicer.

3 - To-Do Lists

Possibly one of my favourite ways to stay organised at home is by creating to-do lists. With a to-do list, you have a list of all the things you want to get done that day. It gives you a nice little schedule to follow and helps you stay more organised and structured. Of course, you can always create a little to-do list on your phone and just keep checking on it throughout the day. In fact, I encourage this if you need to go out and do lots of errands. But, it’s also worthwhile getting a nice little white/blackboard that you can write your lists on in the home too. My idea is to have this board in the kitchen, as it’s always a room you’ll be in at the start of the day to make breakfast. You’ll see your list and can cross stuff off it throughout the day. It’s organisation made simple!

These three tips are easy to follow and can help bring more structure to your life at home.
