Organizing Hacks for the Whole House

Organizing Hacks for the Whole House | Homan at Home

We’ve lived in small apartments all our married life. Our current one has the least storage space we’ve ever had. There are no linen or coat closets, only two drawers in the bathroom, and the tiniest little kitchen area with only a few cupboards. 

It became apparent pretty quick that we were going to have to do something different or live in chaos (which is NOT an option for either Dustin or me).

We started by pairing down, or decluttering, as the bloggers like to call it. I found this link to be extremely helpful as I decided what to keep and what to get rid of. Before I tried any of the cute hacks I’d pinned, I had to get rid of the extra stuff. We simply didn’t have the room for it. Once it was gone, getting started on making things look nice and work well was so much easier. 

Anyway, start with decluttering and once you’re done, check out these cute hacks to make your spaces look nice and organized!

Great list – thanks for including my shoe box organizing! šŸ™‚

Diane Homan

I loved the idea! You’re blog is great for that kind of thing šŸ™‚

Amanda

These are some great ideas– I live in a small apartment too and storage space is at a minimum. I don’t know about the two pairs of shoes each though… šŸ˜›

Thanks for sharing!

Diane Homan

Yeah. It was actually my husband who struggled most with that one šŸ™‚

Denise Miller

Nowadays we all run out of storage because we buy and have really many things. Through the years I have gathered so many kitchen supplies that I can’t really fit everything in my kitchen. It is the same with the linens. Thanks for the cool storage ideas! I will definitely use them! šŸ™‚

Diane Homan

The kitchen and the linen closet are definitely the hardest! Hope you found something that will help šŸ™‚

Joan Merrell

Great organization ideas! I especially love the embroidery hoop laundry hamper idea, and the idea about hanging pot lids with command hooks. I will have to try both of those! Thanks for sharing these! Have a great week!

Diane Homan

I’m glad you found the ideas helpful. The command hook pot lids thing was a life-saver when we moved into our current apartment, so I can definitely recommend!
