A Place for Everything
You’ve heard it: “A place for everything and everything in its place.” The first step to organizing is making sure you have a place for, well … everything. Know where it goes, put it away when you’re done with it, and you can stay on top of clutter throughout the day.
Paper is easy to stack, so workspaces often have piles of paperwork everywhere. You can avoid that clutter with some fashionable, functional organizing tools, like this rustic metal wall bin.
And for your non-paperwork organizational needs, consider this spice rack (good for more than just spices!), these blueberry baskets (good for more than just blueberries!), café pantry shelves, and this galvanized organizer.
Choose Furniture Wisely
When you have drawers, you fill them – mostly with stuff you don’t need, which contributes to the clutter in your life.
Try switching up your furniture choices. This farmhouse desk and this walnut desk offer sleek, minimalist form factors that look good anywhere and help you avoid clutter. If you don’t like gray or walnut, try the Serenity Desk. It’s equally minimalist but offers a pop of color to brighten up your workspace.
Yes, you want to be organized – but you don’t want to be boring! Instead of relying on your phone’s calendar to keep up with meetings, phone calls, birthdays, and soccer games, try this DIY Acrylic Wall Calendar. It’s a fun project to exercise your creative side and looks great on any wall.
And when you have your appointments on your wall, it’s time to make sure you don’t miss them. This wall clock has big numbers so you can read it from anywhere, and its chalkboard-like finish matches any décor.
More proof organization doesn’t have to be boring: a make-your-own secret storage chair. This fun project will make you smile every time you sit down.
And for sudden, brilliant ideas, consider this menu board – it’s not just for menus! Hang this chalkboard by your desk and make your notes, reminders, and important thoughts (like what’s for dinner) fun with colored chalk.
