Since I started my blog nearly two years ago I have written a number of posts all about the different decluttering and organising projects I have carried out around the house. These are all over my blog so what I thought is that I would collate them all in one post, call it a resource library if you like. When I add more posts I will try to remember to add them here too, so hopefully they will always be on one place.
The first post I’m going to share with you is my Working Mums Decluttering Plan. This is always popular in the New Year but it is a plan that you can pick up at anytime of the year. The idea of the plan is to focus on just 15 minutes of decluttering a day. It is amazing how much you can achieve even in a short amount of time.
Moving onto probably one of the busiest rooms in the house, the kitchen. I have covered a wide range of projects in probably what is the busiest room of any house. These include how to declutter and organise your kitchen to organising the food cupboards.
Other topics included:
- Kitchen pan storage
- Kitchen drawers
- Organise Tupperware
- Junk drawer
- Under the kitchen sink, cleaning stuff
- Dumping ground, this could be any surface in your house, for us it was the breakfast bar
I have two girls who both have a wide range of favourite toys that are often found scattered around the house. Because of this I really needed to find ways of organising everything so everyone knew where to find things. More importantly where to put things back! So far I have covered:
Another busy room I have looked at organising is the hallway. The dumping ground for all things shoes, coats and bags.
I have also organised that other random junk drawer that can be found in bedrooms.
And if you want, or need to, tackle probably one of the biggest spaces, I have also got tips on organising the garage.
We all store our paperwork differently, ours is kept in the understairs cupboard. Take a look at how we organise all the paperwork that comes into the house. I have also looked at how to find a way to organise all those special memories the kids bring back from school and clubs.
As well as organising I have also written about our routines. Things covered include:
- meal planning
- morning and evening routines to nail the school run
- how I use my phone to keep on top of everything
- Creating a blackboard for your lists
- Using clipboards instead of a notice board
- How to get on top of the house every day
Hopefully you have found something in this resource library of posts that provides you with the inspiration to tackle some of those cluttered spaces. Like I said, as I cover more I will add them here so make sure to bookmark this post for future reference. If you looking for more inspiration then make sure you check out my Pinterest page, here I have boards that cover pretty much the whole house.
Good luck and please don’t forget to let me know if you try any of these, I always love to hear how you get on.
