Declutter Your Home With Our Organization Tips

break big projects down into small tasks and follow our advice. Handyman Connection of Lexington is the leading home improvement and home maintenance company in our local area. Here are a few tips on organizing the areas of your home:

Organization Tips


Organization is about removing what’s unnecessary and putting what remains in their proper places. First, take a look at your closet and remove items of clothing that you haven’t worn in more than a year. Consider donating them to charity. Then organize the remaining clothes according to the season. Prioritize your footwear by placing the shoes you wear frequently in hanging storage at the back of your closet door. Store the rest in clear plastic boxes underneath your bed.


Taming an unruly kitchen can help you cook quicker and with less fuss. Sort your drawers by dumping the contents onto the counter and putting like objects together. Then use small plastic containers for smaller items. Dispose of broken or unused utensils then organize what remains using drawer separators. You can also purge your pantry by throwing away anything that has expired. Then divide the food into zones and group similar objects together. Label each container you use to avoid confusion.


A clean entryway will make moving through your house much easier. Place boxes for your incoming and outgoing mail near the door and create a special perch for your keys. Place a cubby near the entryway so people can store their shoes. You can pare down your coat closet by donating outerwear that you haven’t used for more than a year. You can also place fabric bins on the top shelf. Use these bins to store scarves, hats, and mittens. Lastly, use a rack on the floor to stow winter gear and boots.

The right approach and attitude can make any project easier. These tips will help you organize your home and make it a more comfortable and serene place.
