5 Super Easy Ways to Maintain an Organized Space

5 Super Easy Ways to Maintain and Organized Space.  Now that you've done all the work to de-clutter and organize your home, learn the right way to maintain it!

You’ve just de-cluttered and organized a space and now what?  You get to walk away from the space and leave it to Rosie the Robot to keep up, right {who else loves the Jetson’s?}?  That would be wonderful and make life so much easier, but no, it’s up to you to maintain that space.  And here’s how you’re going to do it with my 5 super easy ways to maintain an organized space:

1.  Label everything!

Especially label boxes and bins.  Make sure that labels face out so that they will be readily seen.  To make sure this happens more easily, I label one end and one side of every container.

2.  Don’t just toss your stuff into storage!

You’ll have to spend lots of time later reorganizing when the space becomes unmanageable.  Take the time to put items back where they go.  Now.

3.  Reevaluate storage spaces every once in a while.

Ask yourself do you still need everything?  If not, let some things go so that your storage areas aren’t getting out of control.

4.  Follow the One-In-One-Out rule to keep clutter from accumulating.

The rule works like this: if you buy a new toy for your child, see if there is one that is no longer played with that can be given away or sold.  Let go of something that is not a favorite.  Similarly for you, if you buy a new pair of shoes, pick another pair to leave your home.

5.  Before buying something, ask yourself:

Do I need this?  Do I love this?  Do I already own something similar?  Do I have room for this?  How often will it be used?  See more details about these questions in this graphic:

After answering all of those questions, decide if you really still want to buy the item.  If so, great!  If you’ve decided against the purchase, even better.  You’ve just saved yourself some time from maintaining more clutter in your home and have the extra money in your pocket to boot!
