How to organise without throwing away precious memories?

23 Oct 2020

There has always been a constant confusion between organizing and decluttering. Although the two activities go together, the main purpose of organizing is to ensure that your items are in places that you can find. Your closets and drawers can be packed but totally organized. Or, you may have a relatively clutter-free house but can’t ever find what you’re looking for. To ensure that you have an organised space, it is important to keep track of where you place your items. Here are some tips that can help you organise your house.

  • Get storage-type furniture

Having storage type furniture means more spaces to store items and at the same time, helping you to remember and keep track of where you store different categories of items. A storage chair is one of the more popular storage furniture that you can get from most furniture shops. Families like to keep toys or smaller daily use items in it due to the ease of access. Children can also easily reach to open up the chairs to find their favourite toys. Even sofas that allow you to store electronics can also help to prevent any loss of wires whenever you are looking for it.

  • Use different compartments for different category of items

When you have a huge closet and a lot of clothes that you love to wear, it is easy to lose track of where you have placed certain clothes when you get new ones. Many times the old clothes get buried by other old clothes and you will eventually forget its existence until spring cleaning. There is a better way of categorizing clothes that can allow you to see what you have and make it easy for you to find it. You can try rolling up clothes and putting them into custom drawers that can be easily bought from places like IKEA. By rolling clothes, you can see all the clothes that you have from that category and would not forget about it.

  • Keep collectibles in Storerooms

When you tend to collect random items, you will realise that it takes up a lot of space due to the fact that you can’t use it on a daily basis. That is when you will need more space to put in stuff that you actually need to use. Since collectibles are there as a hobby, it is more efficient to leave it in storage spaces that usually store items that are unused and can be forgotten if you do not want to throw it away. A storeroom is a good place that can be used to store unused items, but you have to put it in boxes to make sure it stays organized.

  • Keep unused memorable items in Self-storage facilities

However, for bigger furniture and more items, you can organize them in boxes and store it in larger cabinets. This will help you to clear up space in your homes without throwing away your preloved items.
