Why does it seem as though the most important things are things that most easily become misplaced or lost? It’s frustrating when you lose track of something in your own home. Take action against struggling to find what you’re looking for by promoting cleaning and organizational methods that will make it easier for you to always put your hands on what you want.
Create Permanent Places for Important Items of All Sizes
Creating dedicated places for things and using the storage containers will promote ready accessibility of all your belongings, overall neatness, and a good organizational flow in your home. Using the right sized containers and accessories can make staying organized significantly easier.

Keep the Less Important Items Organized Too
Get bins for items that need to be stored rather than leaving piles of stuff around anywhere in your home. It’s easier to go through a bin and find an item isn’t there than it is to look for an item in an entire room. You can also label the outside of bins with the contents or a brief one or two word description of the type of items that it contains.
Create and Stick to a Cleaning Schedule
You have an idea of how soon it takes for your home to need cleaning on average. Adopt a weekly cleaning schedule in which you have a set day of the week when you perform certain cleaning tasks like vacuuming or spray cleaning your bathroom. Doing these chores consistently on the same days will become like habit, and you’ll be less likely to give yourself permission to let cleaning tasks go longer than you should. If you miss a cleaning day, do your best to get your cleaning done on the following day.
Staying clean and neat is harder for some than others. Regardless of what your natural inclinations are like, everyone can stand to benefit from becoming a little bit tidier. When you feel like your home looks orderly and you know where everything is, you’ll feel more comfortable in your home. Ultimately, once you get tidy and organized, it’s easier than you’d think to stay that way.
