3 Tips for an Organized, Stress-Free Home

April 18, 2024

Looking for tips for an organized home? You’ve come to the right place!

Being organized frees you up and truly liberates you so you can stay present and actually enjoy the good times and people in your life.

The key is having a place for everything and a pre/present/post strategy for getting all items where they need to go (even if it’s to the thrift store, or your local charity for those unwanted presents!).

Best of all, this doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ve made an art (and a science) of this and are excited to share with you these simple tips for an organized, stress-free home.

It starts with breaking down your home organization into 3 phases:

Tips for an Organized Home: 3 Phases of Home Organization

Phase 1 – Minimize

If you’re organizing during the holidays, get lean on those items you usually get as presents during the holidays (hello, socks). You should also go over serving and decorating items from prior years before the next holiday. As a golden rule, if you are short on space (or energy to organize), let go of something before letting a new thing in your life.

Phase 2 – Make Space

Before things and events come your way make sure you free some space for them. For example, if you are big at hosting dinners, simplify your activities in the week prior to your event. That way, you have that extra time to plan and execute it.

This applies also to physical items. Donate old clothes, throw away old cosmetics and make room in your pantry before you do next week’s shopping trip.

Phase 3 – Wrap Up

Carve out a section of your home/closet for seldom-used decorations (like for the holidays) and paraphernalia. Organize it by holiday and store it in a way that’s prioritized by the date they appear on the calendar. Meaning: Valentine’ Day, Easter, spring outings/picnics, summer festivities/supplies, Fourth of July, Halloween and Christmas/Hanukkah.
