3 Tips To Get Started
Organization is a long game, but it always helps to have a starting point. Here is a little direction to help get you started.
Take Stock of Your Space
Take careful inventory of what you currently store in the space, how you currently use the space, and how you wish to use the space.
This is a good time to purge anything you don’t find useful or really love. Be intentional (and even a little brutal)!
Map It Out & Select Storage Options
Create a rough floor plan with a list of everything you need/want to store in this space. Plan where each storage solution will go in the room
Now assign each item on your list to it’s new “home” and make sure it works.
Take It One Project At A Time
It’s easy to get overwhelmed, so make the actual implementation of organizing a bite-sized task you can tackle a project at a time.
