Organise your home in a few easy steps

Nobody likes spending hours organising their home, but these easy tricks will turn even the most time consuming job into a breeze.

Cleaning Supplies

Trying to find the right product for the job can become a very frustrating endeavor if all your supplies are all stuck in a cabinet under the sink. To make it easier to get whatever you need, pop the supplies into a clear shoe organiser and hang it up.

Junk drawer solution

Every house has one of these. It is the drawer where every loose end goes to hide, usually it contains everything from stationery to old batteries.  The solution - old cereal boxes! Cut the bottom off from the boxes to make little containers! You can go a step further and paint or cover the boxes for an extra pretty drawer.

The same technique can be used to organise the spice rack alphabetically - just label each container to make sure you know exactly where to find the braai spice!

Getting the kids organised

Every parent knows that toys seem to take over the house and before you know it you are stepping on Lego’s in the middle of the night. Sort out this issue by getting bix plastic containers, labeling them with pictures of which toys should go into which container to make sure the soft toys and the Lego’s stay separate. 

The make-up shake up

Every woman wants to look her best, but making sure each little cream, blush or brush stays organised is harder than it looks. Create an effortless station by buying a small plastic organiser and sorting everything into their own little drawer!

From photos to cards

Birthday cards, Christmas cards and happy snaps can carry a lot of value but how do you keep them organised? Convert shoeboxes into simple storage - cover the box with pretty paper or fabric and label them to make sure you know exactly what is in each box.

The number one rule

The number one rule about getting your home organised is all about applying tough love.  If you haven’t used something in six months, it is probably safe to say that you are not going to miss it if it wasn’t there.
