With Spring coming up (and Spring Cleaning not too far behind), we've been thinking a lot about how we can get organized after we go through the process of sorting out our closets, bookshelves and other spaces in our home to make room for the new year.
To get some ideas, we turned to Pinterest. Here are some of our favorite pinspirations for getting organized this year:
This hanging family scheduling area is a great way to keep up with hectic day-to-day life. Items that need to be easily reachable (like mail, keys, and calendars) are hung on hooks from a corkboard and in metal paper dividers for easy access, while kids' projects, homework, and other miscellaneous items are kept organized by hanging small bags underneath everything for easy retrieval.
If there's one area in our kitchen that gets the most disorganized, it's our cabinets. Whether it's rushing to put away grocery items after getting back from the store, or trying to cram too many boxes of cereal and bags of flour, sugar, and other staples into the pantry, there just doesn't seem to be a good way to keep everything in its place. That's why we love these see-through labeled containers for not only sugar and flour, but for cereal, pasta, rice, coffee - pretty much anything that comes in a bulky box or bag. It's simple (and cheap) to set up, and it looks great when you open the cabinets. Plus, the baskets are great for keeping bags of stovetop rice and pasta or even bottles of spices and seasonings together.
This is probably one of our favorite DIY projects for organizing a kid's room. Wooden crates (with the interior painted different colors) are hung on the wall for a quick way to store, display, and organize kids' toys. It's easy to setup, and it can be a fun way for kids to showcase their creativity by showcasing their favorite toys, books, or even artwork.
