When it comes to keeping your home decluttered, you could hire a professional organizer, but that can be very expensive. Check out these 5 organizing strategies and products to help you organize your apartment this spring. Feeling springy? Ready to jump in? Even if you pick one product and one room, you might be surprised at how refreshing of an experience organizing can be.

1) Clear Boxes
Clear boxes are great for storing anything that doesn’t store or hang neatly in your bedroom or living room. A clear box allows you to see right in and easily grab what you need. Clear boxes with lids are even better so items don’t fall out easily. There are deep boxes for storing larger items or many similar items in layers, or shallow boxes where a single layer is more appropriate so you don’t have to dig into the box to find an item. Examples of items that you can put in these clear boxes include: extra clothes (i.e. extra t-shirts, shorts, sweaters), shoes, pictures, lightbulbs, batteries, and much more. The next time you need extra AA batteries, you’ll know exactly where to look. Storage boxes are great for both frequently used items that you simply don’t have enough drawer or storage space for, and non-frequently used items that you want to keep out of your way. Tackle your most commonly used areas first (i.e. bedroom or living room).

Pro Tip:

  • Clear boxes are also great for small keepsakes and memories. Don’t want to give away those sentimental pictures from growing up, place them in a small clear box and label it “memory box”.
  • Measure the space you have and size of boxes before purchasing any boxes.

2) Label Maker
Buy a handheld labeler in-store or online. Print out labels for each clear box. For example, if you are tackling your bedroom closet, you might be printing labels such as ‘Pictures’, ‘Shoes’, ‘Extra T-Shirts’. Make sure when you put the items away, the labels face outward so you can easily find them.

Tip: It’s best not to print the label of the box until you know exactly what is going in the box and you have everything laid out on the floor/bed, otherwise you may find yourself changing your mind and wasting labels.

3) Closet Organizer
If you have a lot of clothes hanging in the closet and want to organize by item type (i.e. jackets vs. sweaters), a closet organizer is simple and comes in handy. You can use your handheld label maker to label each respective item and then simply place each organizer over your closet rod.

4) Stackable Basket
Stackable baskets can be extremely helpful. It’s great for larger clothing items that you don’t have room for in your chest, dresser or closet. It’s also great for more ‘sporty’ items like helmets, bags, cleats, or running gear. It’s easy to grab what you need and easy to put away when you’re done. It can look good in your closet or near the door.

5) Under Bed Storage
To create some extra space and clear out the clutter, there are lots of great under bed storage items (clear drawers and soft bags). These can be great for storing things that aren’t accessed regularly such as summer or winter clothes, or those extra guest linens.

Lastly, as you start implementing don’t be afraid to donate, recycle, or get rid of items that you know you are not going to ever need.
