5 Tips to Help Moms Get Organized
Give items a home.
When everything has a home, you are not going to have random items lying around.
- A basket for remotes
- A crate to hold blankets
- Hooks to hang up bags or keys
- A basket for shoes
Walkthrough each room and look to see where you can create home bases for items. Once you give items a home, tell your family about it so you can all work together with this!
Set up helpful systems.
A common struggle is having a pile of random papers on the counter. In the busyness of life, this happens as we walk in with the mail and toss it on the counter.
If you are noticing an area becoming a problem spot, figure out a system to help solve the problem.
Train others to follow the systems.
Organized spaces are good and wonderful but it is going to be impossible to keep them up if no one else is following along. When you set up a new system, sit down with your family and explain to them where to put things.
It takes a lot of reminding, but eventually, they will remember!
This also means we will have to stop and train our kids rather than doing everything for them. For example, instead of picking up my kids’ shoes, I can take the time to remind them to stop and put their shoes in the basket. The more they practice, the easier it becomes for them to remember.
Re-visit the systems.
There are times when an organized space is just not working. Before you try to force it to work, look at the space, and figure out why it is not working. It may take a few tries to get a system right for the space.
Get rid of excess.
As you are organizing, ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” Sometimes we are holding onto things thinking we will use it, but we never do.
Instead of organizing clutter, take time to get rid of what is not needed.
