Home Organization 101 by Homely Center (PDF)
Your home is meant to be a sanctuary. It needs to be somewhere you can go to at the end of the day and retreat from the outside world. No matter what came your way during the course of your working day, you can forget it all once you close your door behind you, kicking off your shoes and relaxing for the evening ahead.
No-one of that is possible in a house that is in disarray.
Is your home organized? Be honest. Nobody else is going to judge you, you can only judge yourself!
Sure, we all have a room that tends to be the ‘clutter space’, somewhere that items you’re not sure what to do with end up. That’s normal. But, if the rest of your house is lacking in organization, it can slowly start to eat away at how much of a sanctuary your home feels. You see, having an organized home is the equivalent of having a tidy desk. You can find exactly what you need, when you need it. You know when you're about to run out of something, and everything is tidy and in its place. Never underestimate the power of decluttering a home!
If your house feels less tidy than it should, if you’re always searching for things at the last minute, then the solution is easy. You simply need to set some time aside to organize everything properly. From there, it’s all about maintenance!
This book is going to give you the lowdown on what you need to do to achieve the aims outlined above. It’s not rocket science, but it does come down to some hacks that you might never have thought of otherwise. Your home should be somewhere you enjoy spending time, somewhere you’re proud of, and not somewhere you avoid having people over to because you’re worried what they’ll think.
I should point out one very important thing - a disorganized home is completely different from a dirty home. I am sure that your home is very clean indeed and that's not what we’re talking about here. Instead, we’re focusing upon knowing where things are, getting rid of clutter, and organizing everything so that you can place your hands on it at the right time, and you feel in control. At the end of the day, we all need to feel in control of our surroundings, especially in our homes - organization can do that for you.
So, if you’re keen to learn more about organizing your home, you’re about to learn more than you could ever imagine. From storage hacks to devices, paperwork systems to Feng Shui; prepare yourself for a whistle-stop tour of the world of total household organization.
