Getting Organized at Home

I hope everyone is doing well today!   With all the time we are having at home, one of my goals is getting organized at home.  Over the past few years, I’ve shared several organizing posts that I thought I’d share in one place for you today.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be going room by room to get these spaces back to tip top shape and doing a few more!  I’ll share on Instagram Stories as I do these spaces to offer you a bit of inspiration as well.

So many more of us are cooking all three meals at home (with a little take out to support our local restaurants mixed in), an organized pantry is a must!  My friend Tonia Tomlin from Sorted Out shared 5 Tips to a Perfectly Organized Pantry that helped me tame the chaos of a fairly small and highly used pantry.  I actually cleaned up and relabeled the pantry in February and I’m so glad I did!

One of the first posts I did almost 6 years ago, was kitchen and bath drawer organization.  This was a hugely popular post and still gets traffic.  It’s super easy and helps so much when cooking like we are all doing a lot of right now.  I’m going to be pulling everything out of the drawers, wiping them out and making it all fresh in the coming days. My Master Bath drawers are next!  I get so many samples, it’s time to clean out!

Top of my list after the Master Closet is my Master Bath.  I love the organizing system that The Container Store helped me put together using their Organization Studio.  This was a really fun project and one you can do from home and get the supplies you need for any space with their expert help online.

Another item I’ll be working on is Home Maintenance.  A few weeks ago I shared the Complete Home Maintenance Checklist and it is time to get this quarter’s items checked off the list.  No Excuses!

I hope this gives you some inspiration on getting organized at home and how to make the most of the downtime at home.  I’ll be doing these while the girls do their online classes next week.

With love and prayers for good health and joy in these circumstances,
