Making Your House Organized & Practical

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML



Are you organizing your home for practical purposes?
You might be thinking “I never thought about that.”
Or you might be thinking “I don’t know how to even organize, I’m not an organized person.”

Either way I’ve got you, as we discuss the right way to organize.

Real Life Challenge

Imagine you have opened the door to your pantry and the Reeser’s Puff cereal box falls over, making little balls spill all over the floor. It’s time to organize your pantry.

Categorizations

You might be struggling with organizing your house practically if you have a weak cognitive function of categorizations.

Categorizing is about being able to take items and putting them into groups.
Example:
Apples, oranges, pears - Fruits.
Cucumbers, peppers, radish - Vegetables.

The challenge with categorizing, is there are many ways you can split the same things.
I can take those same exact fruits and split them instead by color. Or by texture. Or country of origin etc. 

Using Categorizations to Organize 

The best way to organize is to make your groups not only based on things that go together but also how often/when you use them.

Going back to our real-life challenge, if you want to organize your pantry, the items you use most, should be grouped together and placed in an easily accessible placed based on the needs.

So, let’s say cereal is something you use every morning, you’ll want to put all those together, in a place that’s easy to reach (unless you have a 3-year-old who will take it any time and turn it into a mess.)

Even inside your group, the cereals you eat most often should be in the front or most accessible.

Now let’s say you have a TON of cereal boxes, or you buy cereal in Costco you have a lot of everything, you may be wasting precious space by overfilling a spot.
Maybe if you put too many cereals on that shelf, it’s gonna be too tight and will struggle every time you try to take out the box.
The goal is to making it practical, so it may be the best if you store the ones you don’t use often in a different place.

You may be thinking, all that makes sense, but I’m still confused on how to do this in my own life.
Let's make it practical. 

How to Organize: Making it Practical 

I like to start backwards, by asking the questions:
“What are the items in this closet that I need most often?”
“And where do I use them?”
Once you know what those are, you can group items accordingly.

For example, if you are trying to organize your desk.
Ask yourself: What do I use most often?

Pens, charger, sticky notes these items will go in really easy, convenient place. Right in the front, maybe even in view point.
The charger might be kept really close to an outlet. (You want to keep items near where you use it.)

But what about a 3-hole puncher and stapler?
If you don’t use those often they can go further way and grouped under the category of “office supplies”

Wires you use once a year? That can go all the way in the back of the closet in group called wires.

Starting to make sense? Good.

Boxes and Containers

Putting things in boxes or containers makes it easier for it to stay in the right group.
If it doesn’t make sense to put in a box, then make sure at least to give it a very specific place to be kept. 

Organizing Works Best When

Organizing usually works best when you do the WHOLE thing at time.
The whole closet, not just a draw.

I know it can be extremely overwhelming and messy but the reason for this is because it you can organize it while seeing the BIG picture, not just that little draw.

If this doesn’t work for you, what you can do instead is take some time to plan out the general locations of your groups before you start organizing, this way you can still do just one shelf/draw at a time but know what area it’s going towards.

(Psst. If organizing the whole closet seems way to overwhelming, it's a good sign you need to improve your cognitive function of categorizations.)

Remember

Organizing is a skill that takes practice and is very related to categorizations.
The more you organize, the more you improve your cognitive function of categorization, the better you’ll get at both of them.
