Organising my personal space and possessions is one of the most anxiety reducing tasks I can do so naturally during the past few months, I've been sorting through older blog posts, re-organising my books, wading through my plethora of half-used products to try and finish them and sorting through my beauty collection, wardrobe and accessories. I personally find that having a tidy and organised home, especially as I work from home, is essential for me to have a clearer, organised and more productive mind. Today's post features some of my tips and ideas for organising your home!

Organise Seasonal Items
St the start of every season I like to go through my beauty, skincare, clothing, desk drawers and bathroom cabinets to not only bring out my more seasonal items to use but also to cull the items I'm not enjoying (I either find another use for them, pass them on or throw them away - recycling when I can) and to better organise for the new season ahead. For example, winter clothing is packed away in boxes above my wardrobe, winter appropriate skincare and cosmetic shades are added to another drawer rather than my daily rotation and seasonal items I want to use again are brought out. I think having a seasonal cull and organising your home (or just that one perpetually messy room everyone seems to have) is a great way of keeping account of the items you own and to re-organise your storage more efficiently. 

Space Saving Storage Ideas
If you have a small apartment or a limited amount of storage, you need to make the most of the space you have! For example, storage under the bed, stacked storage boxes, wall hanging organisation, fitted wardrobes, wall shelves, mirrored cabinets and trolleys are just a few options to consider. Utilise spaces that are usually forgotten (such as under desks or above cabinets) and search online for stackable storage boxes to better use the current space you have. I highly recommend the stackable drawers from Muji which I've used for years. I've also found invisible wall shelves a handy storage idea for my excess books and storage boxes within larger drawers is an easy way to organise the drawer more efficiently for the space you have. 

Self Storage Solutions 
Another option to choose if you have a number of larger items or more than your home can comfortably contain are self storage solutions near you. Now Storage Swindon is an option to consider, along with their other self storage solution facilities throughout the country. Head over to their website to get an instant quote online and to find out more about their storage options, all of which are secure with 24/7 CCTV and offer flexible access to your storage. I think self storage options would be a great option not only for those in the process of moving house or for small business needs but also if you don't have the storage in your own home for excess items or larger objects. We currently have an attic absolutely full of items to sell and donate so a self storage unit would be great for us!

Have you tried any of these ideas or have you tried self storage near you? Do you have any organising or de-cluttering tips?

  8. I enjoy having a seasonal sort out too. I don't have many beauty or skincare products that I pack away though because I'm always conscious of how quickly the weather changes, so I keep them out all year round.
