Organizing Tips for Your New Home

With the new year comes a new list of resolutions, with organizing and decluttering often being at the top of your to-do list. When you move into your custom new home, take the opportunity to create new systems and strategies to stay organized from the start. Here are some simple and practical ways to get your new home in order in 2023.

Storage Containers

Every home is full of items in all sorts of shapes and sizes that can quickly pile up in your closets and in your drawers. You can prevent those eyesore shelves full of random stuff by using boxes and containers to stow away those odds and ends. Containers also encourage you to categorize and define their usage, making your organization efficient and long-lasting.

Color Coded

Your brain likes to group by color, so why not put that skill to good use? Whether it's coordinating your clothes in your closet or your food in your pantry, color-coding different areas in your home will make things easier to find and put away. Plus it looks good, too!

Room by Room

Oftentimes, the thought of going through all your belongings can be overwhelming and keep you from accomplishing your goals. Make it simple and tackle one room or even one item at a time. By setting small tasks, you’re more likely to get the job done!

Make It Fun

Keeping yourself organized can be a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be boring or look a certain way. Place a chalkboard near your refrigerator for your grocery list or use cute animal-themed bins in your kid’s room for their toys. Your home can still have character while looking put together!
