It’s been a week of organizing over here, and we’ve had so much fun sharing our expert Q&As, our latest webisode, and Shea’s favorite tips for tidying up! We even asked our Instagram followers to share their favorite organizing hacks in the comments of one of our posts, and we got such great answers we decided to dedicate a whole blog post to them!

We wanted to include every single one, but we cut them down a bit to make it a quick read. Scroll through for some of the best tricks for staying organized this year. Trust us, you’ll learn something from one of these tips, we know we did.

FOR THE EVERYDAY

“Keep a cute basket on your stairs or near stairs and as items collect downstairs that need to go upstairs, toss in the basket and take upstairs at the end of the night to get put away or put in laundry! My kids shed clothes everywhere on our main level, and so I keep a basket in our stairs to collect the clothes to go up at night.” –Ohmydarlinghome

“My tried and true ritual to keep my house in order and help my mind and mood is what I call “ZERO OUT THE HOUSE” Every night/evening. Level ZERO means clothes hung/folded, kitchen cleaned and dishwasher started, put away clutter, fold throw blankets, put throw pillows where they belong, put remotes back on the entertainment center, shoes and coats in the mudroom, toys back in baskets, etc. The more consistent you stay, the simpler it easy to get it back to “level zero” in the evening. Put on a show or podcast in the background and hubby, and I tackle it, and it goes quick!” – Harrisonzachary17

“Make sure everything has a home. Also, categorizing items helps when you create these spaces. Think of organizing as a way of life rather than a one-time event.” – Rachelorganizes

“Purging every 6 months is what helps me stay sane! Also, removing packaging so you can see what you actually have and organize with bins and baskets.” – Alysewarren

“We keep 3 baskets under a sofa table near our stairs. One for things that need to go upstairs, one for things that need to go in the basement and one for things that need to be put away properly on our first floor when time allows. Helps us keep the clutter at bay!” – Reihmanroad 

“Baskets, baskets, baskets…and more baskets!” –Ehdesignmn

“Baskets to hide unsightly necessities like shoes, toys, etc. Throw a textured blanket, throw pillow, or even a fun folded tablecloth on top for an organic and easy upgraded look.” –Beamandbloom

FOR LOOSE PAPERS

“Scan documents that I don’t need to keep in hard form but may want to look back at and then THROW THEM AWAY.” – Susanzingkhai

“Deal with mail immediately! And get off junk mailings.” –Meadowhaus_design 

“Staple receipts to the tags of new items you buy. If you decide you don’t need it or want to take it back, you know where the receipt is.” –Kcjefcoat 

FOR THE KIDS

“One in one out. If we get something new, we pick something outgrown and put it in a giveaway bin that lives in the garage. Works especially well with clothes and kids’ toys.” – Janeengoligher

“I have my eye on your wide grid boxes to store my kiddos refrigerator magnets in. Plan to put them on our open shelving to easily hide them away when they aren’t playing with them.” –Housewithhome

“Put divided laundry bin or three baskets in kids closets and teach them to sort their own dirty clothes—light, dark, white. When it’s time to do laundry, simply take a basket of clothes to the laundry area and return it with clean clothes. Kids can fold and put away. – Jdmcclish

“Coffee tables with storage, drawers over cabinets (always)- easier for kids to dump toys in.” – camden_grace_interiors

“Take all pantry items out of box packages as much as you can and unload them into clear containers and baskets. Creates a market feel in your own space while being so functional!” –Kfmliving 





“I use several plastic lazy Susan’s in my fridge. Perfect for small bottles of condiments or squeeze tubes of garlic paste, etc. Easy to see what you have with just a spin. And I’m never knocking one thing over to get to another behind it.” –Pieabakeshop

FOR THE EXTRAS

“I keep an empty basket in my closet to donate clothing, it doesn’t take long to fill up! Every month or so, the donation goes to a local charity.” – Marthaboswell

“I advise clients to keep a donation bin somewhere in the house or garage where you can easily throw stuff in that you realize you won’t use anymore. It’s amazing how much stuff on a daily basis you can identify as something that’s no longer needed. If you haven’t used it in 6 months, then you most likely won’t use it in the next.” – Primorganizing

“When you take a clothing item off of a hanger, move the hanger to the end of the rod so empty hangers stay together and easily accessible instead of getting cluttered between hanging clothes.” – Home_staging_omaha

“Because organizing is a lifestyle, ask yourself on a quarterly basis, what habits do I need to adopt, adjust or abandon. Our homes are a place that should promote peace and support our personal goals!! A place we recharge!” – Gracefulspacesorganizing
