5 Home Organizing Tips That Will Actually Make Your Life Easier | Time utilization in Covid-19

When you spend a lot of time in your home, it can be easy to get into the habit of organizing and reorganizing same space over and over.

Whether you just can’t get yourself to finally get rid of certain items or you’ve had trouble finding something. That’s way too normal and you’re certainly not alone. After a year in various levels of COVID-induced lockdown, odds are that all of us have at least one area of our home that makes us want to pull our hair out.

For me, for a long time, this area was my closet floor or what I would assume to be my closet floor. I couldn’t actually be sure it was there, because it had been a solid year or so since I’d seen it at one point.

The ultimate solution? An empty box placed at the bottom of my closet. When an item was ready to be thrown out or donated, I simply placed it in the box. When the box was full, I got rid of the clothing in it and started again. It was a simple, nearly free solution, and it was effective.

TIP 1

“Elevate your laptop. Elevating your computer screen is better for your posture, and it also provides you with additional real estate if you’re short on space “If you are at-home office setup is temporary, consider using a shelf riser that you can repurpose once you’re back in your office.”

 What life was like before the change

“A cluttered desk and a cluttered mind.” 

How life has improved after it

“A clearer space both physically and mentally.”

Tip 2

Store food storage containers with the lids on.

 

How they discovered it

“The first person I saw do this was my mom in high school. Even as a 17-year-old, I was in awe of the neatness and utility of not having to try a million different lids every time you need a good plastic ware.”

What life was like before the change

“My drawer was a catastrophe in hostel life, and I regularly lost lids and bottoms. I used to dread putting food away because I knew it meant I’d have to cope with that disaster area.”

How life has improved after it

“Now when I open my drawer, I feel like I’ve really got my sh*t together. Not to mention, I’ve gained who knows how much time I used to spend fishing around and angrily trying lids that look like they’ll fit but, mysteriously, don’t.”

 

Tip 3

Use digital products such as planner PRO and Trustworthy that store important documents securely.

How they discovered it

It popped up on her Instagram and she signed up immediately. “Now, any time I do home offices, it is the exact product I use for clients vs. messy file folders. I also use it for myself and my family.”

What life was like before the change

“After many failed attempts of scanning and uploading documents to Google Drive and Dropbox for a client and it taking nearly a week to do so, I became so frustrated with the process that I googled alternatives.”

How life has improved after it

“I quite literally have my time back. The 1-week challenge of trying to upload documents to save for a client to organize their physical office space has now resulted in less than 30 minutes. Paperwork is stored beautifully, and they don’t need to purchase extra products to have it physically organized. Things can be kept away in desks and drawers, labeled and unseen.”

Tip 4

“Color-coding clothing ROYGBIV! I even color-code and fold my underwear to this principle, and it’s changed my life. With hanging items I organize by sleeve length (shortest to longest) as well. I’ve been doing it for about 5+ years now, and it’s a game-changer!”

 

How they discovered it

“Going shopping to any good store. It’s how they organized clearance sections.”

What life was like before the change

“Chaotic!  it was always hard to find the items I wanted to wear.”

How life has improved after it

“Less of a struggle to decide what I want to wear and where to find it. I live small as well, so it just keeps things looking tidy!”

Tip 5

“Find a charity you are passionate about! I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people who were nervous to donate things because they did not know where they would end up. When you find a reputable place, you will find yourself being more generous.

How they discovered it

“From hearing feedback from donating hands about not trusting certain organizations with their donations. I decided to do research and find places where I know they will actually be helping people.”

What life was like before the change

“Before decluttering and setting up organization systems at home, I found my space to be chaotic. Your home should be a Zen space and not add more stress to your already stressful life.”

How life has improved after it

“I ultimately found time to do more things that I love instead of always feeling like I needed to be cleaning something.”
