10 simple tricks to organise the whole house

August has already passed us by and with it, goes the summer season. Returning to work is now a reality that we cannot run away from. But far from falling into a sorrowful moment, it is best to make a few changes to help us face those new challenges with optimism. Many of these changes can be made within our home. That's why, right now, we want to give you 10 simple tricks to keep your house tidy in the present and future.

1. Think carefully before you buy. If you do not need something, why should you buy it? In the end, it will only take up the space in your drawer when you could use that space for something more useful.

2. Organise by category. Forget the traditional method of organisation by putting the items in different places. You may want to empty the cabinets and get rid of what you no longer need. Without a doubt, now is a good time to start.

3. Dispose, treasure or sell? Spend some time sorting out your stuff with these three labels. If it's useless, throw it away, but if it has sentimental value to you, save it. If it is something that's in good condition, sell it or give it away.

4. Before bringing new items to your home, clear away the old ones. Balance is only possible if you buy something that will replace the other items you already had.

5. Organise the cleaning. Get the idea of cleaning only when you have to out of your head. From now on, it is best to set certain days of the week when you will be required to clean. If you do not want to do everything together, plan it in stages.

6. Do not clutter your home with too many cushions. Although cushions look good, too many will cause discomfort. It may be enough to just give your living room a coat of paint. 

7. Furniture, the more versatile, the better. If you have to buy new pieces of furniture, take advantage of choosing those that provide you with better storage solutions, such as beds with drawers.

8. Let the baskets help you. Placing baskets at strategic points, such as the bathroom or the kitchen, will help you to keep everything tidier.

9. Store away after use. It is important that you get used to returning everything you use back to its right place. This applies to both the salt shaker and your laptop, for example.

10. Always fold clothes. Rather than hanging all your clothes in the closet, consider folding them as they will take up half the space. Try this for yourself as you will be pleasantly surprised.
