Easy ways to organize

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

Spring cleaning season is approaching, and with a plan of attack you can take this opportunity to clear away clutter, organize underutilized spaces and generally improve the overall usability of your home. Procter & Gamble and The Home Depot have teamed up with seven DIY bloggers to offer 14 room-by-room tips for getting organized this spring:

Cutting kitchen chaos

• Nearly everyone has one drawer in their kitchen that becomes the “catch-all spot.” Empty yours, wipe down the inside, and insert a silverware tray to help organize pens, batteries, buttons, random screws and other items that find their way into the drawer.

• Every family needs a central spot for sharing information. But if a cork board, white board or chalkboard isn’t your idea of wall decor, try hiding them away on the inside of a kitchen cabinet. Mount a cork panel on the inside of a cabinet door, or use chalkboard paint to create a hidden and useful spot for notes, shopping lists, coupons and reminders.

• Organize the cupboard and pantry by using boxes, jars and baskets with labels on them. When it’s time to put an item away, everyone will know where it belongs.

Better bathrooms

• Bathroom drawers can easily become cluttered. Place desk organizing trays in drawers so that items like makeup, combs, curling irons, etc. stay neat and orderly. • A basket makes a great way to cleverly display toilet paper and still make it easily accessible when needed.

• Try placing scented candles in the bathroom to neutralize odors and add a fresh, welcoming aura.

Lighten the load in laundry rooms • Even small laundry rooms have unused space above the washer and dryer, where you can install shelving for storage.

• Add a rolling cart or laundry butler to your laundry room. It’s a great way to add organization and function.
