Organization Ideas!


Spring Cleaning is a common phrase that everyone is familiar with: when the weather improves, so does the state of your home. Closets are cleaned out, everything is de-cluttered, and organization runs rampant through your home. For a few (brief, in my case) moments, everything in your home has a place and everything is in order.  There are no random piles of bills and important papers lurking on counters, no piles of laundry waiting at the bottom of stairs, no craft rooms that appear to have been designated as some form of disaster area.

In my world, I don’t really have a Spring Cleaning per se; mine is more of a Back-To-School Cleaning. As a teacher in my past life, this is the time of year when I wanted my freshly sharpened pencils and clean sheets of paper to have a proper home and I wanted my home in the same order. It seems only natural to me that as school is starting in some parts of the country already (mine included), I’ll share some of my favorite organization ideas that I’ve rounded up.

  1. What great ideas! I agree, as a former teacher this is the time of year when I do most of my cleaning (maybe because it keeps me occupied while all my friends are going back to school, maybe because I always cleaned my classroom like a mad woman before school started). That is the best way ever to fold fitted sheets! I remember watching Martha Stewart in elementary school (because I’m THAT cool) and she demonstrated that method of folding fitted sheets. Now I can’t stand to see them folded any other way, I even have my husband trained to fold them correctly.

    • I’m so glad that it isn’t just me that is obsessed with organizing this time of year! I remember seeing the sheet trick on Martha year ago too, but never could get the hang of it. I’m determined to now!

  2. Such great ideas – thanks for sharing. I always look forward to fall organizing as well … I think having the kids back into their routines makes it feel like a good time to get everything reorganized after the summer chaos.

    • You are welcome! I guess it nevver made sense to organize in the spring to me. Heaven knows it wasn’t going to stay organized once we got of school for the summer! Fall organizing just makes *much* more sense to me. :)

  3. Love them all! Thanks for sharing.

  4. As a fellow teacher, back to school time leaves me saying, “Must organize everything!” Love these ideas and FINALLY someone showed me how to fold a fitted sheet! I can now stop rolling them in a ball and shoving them in a closet!
