We all have that one (or more) area of our house where we sort of throw random stuff. Maybe it’s a junk drawer, closet, or a corner of a room. We tend to forget about those things and then it gets so big that we feel overwhelmed.

I have gathered a list of really great organizing tips that will tackle your clutter and make your house feel more like a home again.


Crazy Easy Organizing Tips

These are in no particular order. Just some tips I’ve seen online and other things that have helped me through the years to be better organized.

-First of all, figure out what part of the house you need to start first. That is the hardest part.

-Store cans on their sides in your pantry with these racks

-stretch freezer space with inexpensive plastic bins



-Shopping bags in old tissue boxes

-To save space in your closet double and triple your hangers with can tabs

– Organize your hair dryer, straightener, and hair brushes with magazine holders

-Use cd holders in your container cabinet to hold the lids neatly

-Use clear plastic boxes to organize crayons, pens, and markers for your kid’s homework area

-Use on the door racks for EVERYTHING (great for spices and cans in the pantry)

-Bag up bath toys

-Use a picture frame as a dry erase board (Dry Erase Picture Frame)

-Use hanging file holders for gift bags and wrap

-And use bag holders for wrapping paper

-Get a few of these cube organizers for your kid’s rooms (they can organize shoes, sweaters, toys or books)

-Add flair to your entry way with a simple but elegant bowl on a small table to catch your keys, pocket change, and mail.

-Use a dish rack to make a coloring station for your little ones (put the coloring books in the slots and some pencils or markers in the utensil holder)

-make a point of putting things away as soon as you are finished with them

-Use votive candle holders for toothpicks or q-tips and slightly larger ones for cotton swabs

-Set a timer for 10 minutes, quickly remove clothes that you absolutely no longer want from your closet

-Have someone to help on the organizing projects that are too heavy, too emotional, or too time-consuming.

-In your bedroom, eliminate anything that isn’t related to dressing, sleeping, or relaxation. Relocate items to other rooms or closets. Add fresh flowers or a candle.


I hope you get some useful information from this list of organizing tips. It’s very difficult in our busy lives to keep every thing neat and organized. It has been said that clutter causes anxiety and depression.

What do you do in your home to keep things organized and tidy?
