There’s nothing more satisfying than a clean and tidy home. It’s a great feeling to know there’s a place for everything, and everything is in its place!
If your house has been a little cluttered and disorganized lately, never fear — Goodwill is here to help you with all your organization and storage needs!
Check out our tips and tricks for easy organization around the home:
Think outside the box
Unexpected items make clever storage solutions! We love the idea of repurposing thrifted items and giving them a new life inside your home. For example, keep bathroom supplies like makeup brushes, cotton swabs, and toothbrushes organized in labeled glass jars. A wicker basket can be used to store toys, books, or spare blankets. Shop at Goodwill and keep your eyes open for items you can repurpose and reuse for smart storage. You never know what you might find!
Don’t hide your stuff, display it!
Rethink what it means to declutter your home. Maybe there are some belongings that don’t need to be hidden, but rather displayed for everyone to see!
Turn a retro typewriter or camera into modern home décor by displaying it on a “floating” shelf” or bookshelf. When styling a shelf, try to group items in similar shapes, sizes, or colors together for a more cohesive display. Need a few more items to complete the look? Shop at Goodwill for afforable home décor like small vases, porcelain figurines, picture frames, books, and much more!
Follow the “one in, one out” rule
Another great way to stay organized is by following the “one in, one out” rule. For every new item you bring into your home, find something you can donate to Goodwill! You’ll save space and make a difference by donating your gently-used clothing, accessories, and home goods to your local Goodwill.
Ready, set, organize!
Goodwill has everything you need to organize your home and help make life a little easier. Head to your nearest retail store or donation site and plan your next trip. We can’t wait to see you!
