Organizing on a Budget

download (1)At my house, my mind can feel a little disorganized at times. I bet your house feels discombobulated too at some times! When classes and work start piling up, so do laundry, mail and other clutter.

Not to brag — but I like to think of myself as a home expert. I am one after all, and it’s my job to help you find the perfect one with Jackson Properties. Once you’ve settled into our community, take a moment to consider some fun and easy ways to keep your new home organized and tidy!

  1. Don’t cut corners!

When you’re picking out furniture, look for items that will help you utilized all the available space! Corner bookshelves, TV stands, and desks fit so easily into those tight spaces in your apartment or home that don’t normally get used. Freeing up wall or mid-room space will give you a chance to add more storage or furniture!k2-_d9a78e80-4352-4e1b-a3c1-0e507a7107e6.v1

2. Use storage containers in unexpected places.

You know how to use shoe organizers and file folders in the usual way, but here are two creative ideas that will help you save drawer and pantry space in the kitchen!

Use file folder holders on the inside of kitchen cabinets to store plastic wrap, foir or ziplock bag boxes. You can even use them to store cutting boards or paper plates!

Shoe organizers are great containers for the inside of a pantry door. Use them to store spaces, small snacks, canned foods and more. You’ll have more space on your valuable shelves for large and heavy food items.6e46469d03dd7896977d6794bd3d6da8
