Get Inspired to Get Organized: 5 Tips from Some of the Worlds Most Organized People

Getting organized can seem overwhelming. Social media has filled our feeds with rainbow coordinated closets and artsy labels galore. Beyond aesthetically pleasing spaces, what are some useful tips that can actually help with organization? We scoured the internet and chose 5 of our top personalities who are helping people get organized and stay organized. We selected some of our favorite organization tips from each expert covering many aspects of daily living.  

Wherever you are in your organization journey, these ladies can help get you inspired.  

Imagine Your Ideal Life with Marie Kondo 

Before beginning a tidying or organization task in your space, Marie Kondo recommends setting an intention for your space. Take a moment to imagine your ideal lifestyle in the space. Marie says, “When you imagine your ideal lifestyle, you are really clarifying why you want to tidy and envisioning your best life.  The tidying process represents a turning point – so seriously consider the ideal lifestyle to which you aspire.”  

It’s easy to jump into a project and start cleaning up a space, but its important to take a moment and decide how you want the space to work for you. When you decide on an intention, you can be more efficient with your tidying time and effort. For example, if you are organizing your office, you may want to think about the work you would like to achieve and how your space can help you be more productive. 

Make it Visible with The Home Edit 

If you are hoping to make a few diet changes in your life, it makes sense to stock up your fridge with healthy staples. A simple way to make reaching for those foods easier is to make them more visible. Avoid putting all the cut fruit and veggies in the back of a drawer. The Home Edit ladies put it this way: 

“The best way to start is by organizing your fridge and reworking the system. When healthy items are visible, easy to access, and easy to prepare, you’ll be a lot less likely to cave, which for me means ordering delivery and calling it a day.” 

This tip can apply to many areas of life. If we don’t see something, we tend to forget about it and move on. Use this tip to bring the things that are important to you to the front and where you can see them.  

Categorize and Place with Cassandra Aarssen 

Our homes are full of various objects, and it can be hard to know where to put each item. We have all heard the term of “finding a home” for each item, but sometimes that isn’t enough to prevent the item from getting lost. What might help us keep track of items is by grouping like things together and placing things where you use it.  

Cassandra Aarssen  says, “Organization means storing things close to where you use it so that it’s really easy to put away.” 

For example, some people aren’t hangar people and so categorizing a zone for coats on a coat rack in the entry way may help keep those like items together and categorized.  

Make Use of Your Space with Kristen McGowan 

Are you living in tight quarters? Or can’t find places to put items? Maximizing your space is key to getting the most out of it. By getting creative with storage solutions, you can fit all your items in an organized way with simple solutions. Kristen McGowan praises the potential of vertical space. She says

“Vertical storage solutions is always the best way to make the most of the space you do have.” 

Instead of spreading items over a wide space use the vertical space and go up. This might mean purchasing shelving or other wall hanging tools to allow you to place items in the vertical space. An easy example that Kristen even mentions is vertical shelving for spices.
