Genius home organizing tips
    2014-07-18  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    IF you always admire the neat apartment of your neighbors, now is the time to do some decluttering. Here are some useful tips.

    Door storage

    Hanging clear shoe organizers are a good idea. You can put them behind every door in your apartment: one in the entryway for hats, gloves and scarves, another in the garage for nails, screwdrivers and smaller items and one in the bathroom for trial-size items. You can use one in the kitchen for spices and small bags and another in the linen closet for washcloths and pillow cases. And of course, you can use one in your closet for shoes!

    T is for toaster

    Use an A-Z accordion file for storing instruction booklets for appliances and electronics. Staple the receipt to the inside of the booklet and then file it under the letter of the alphabet it fits. Example: toaster goes under T and not under the brand name. This system makes it possible for anyone in the household to find instruction booklets without having to ask or search the entire house since they’re all stored in one location.

    Box it up

    Use plastic school pencil boxes with lids to organize your medicine cabinet. Sort all medicines by type and put them in the boxes. Then label the side of the box and store on a shelf in the cabinet. You can use the same types of boxes to keep your junk drawer organized as well.

    Clothes by occasion

    Organize clothes by the four uses you have for them: formal, work, casual and sport. Then keep all clothes for those different categories in different parts of your closet. From there, organize your clothes by color and style (for example, short- and long-sleeved shirts or pants and skirts) so that it’s easier to create outfits and think of different options.

    Seasonal shoes

    Store out-of-season shoes in shoe boxes in the top of your closet. You can write a description of the summer shoe on one end of the box for storage during winter. Use the same box for your winter shoes and write the description on the other end. (SD-Agencies)
