sorting

If you’re anything like us, you love a good home sorting tip! Which is why we’ve put together our favourite tips in this handy blog.

1. Store sheets inside a matching pillow case

Is your linen cupboard an absolute mess? Get sorted again by folding your sheets and storing them in one of the matching pillow cases. This will give you a neat linen cupboard and make it super easy to find what you’re looking for when changing your sheets.

2. Use labels on everything

Nothing make a home more sorted than one with labels. Don’t trust your memory when it comes to your pantry or medicine cabinet – these are not places for error. Instead, use labels to ensure you always know where everything is located. Labels also help your family members return items to where they belong.

3. Use vertical storage in every room of your home

The easiest way to generate more storage for your home is to use vertical options. Common examples include hanging gardening tools on the garage walls, but the same also works for your indoor brooms and mops.

Additionally, hanging baskets can be used in the bathroom for kids’ toys. Had you thought of that before?

4. Keep a cleaning bucket ready to go

A fantastic way of sorting and storing your cleaning products is to keep a cleaning bucket ready to go at all times. Keep basic cleaning tools such as cloths and disinfectants in the bucket and store it beneath your laundry or kitchen sink. Next time you’re ready to clean just grab the bucket and go – no excuses!

5. Stick a shopping list to your refrigerator or pantry door

Every time you or a family member finishes an item of food, write it on the shopping list. This enables you to have a clear idea of what you’re missing in your pantry and makes it easy to do the groceries when grocery day rolls around.

6. Give every item a home

Without a doubt, every item in your home should have its own place. Get into the habit of giving each new item a designated spot and returning items to their place when you’re done with them. It may sound simple, but trust us, you won’t regret the few extra seconds in the long term.

We hope you’ll use this tips in your everyday life. Together they’re sure to make your life a little bit easier and a lot more sorted!
