Home organization by space-saving hacks
When you are making home organizing choices, you must keep in mind to utilize your space VERTICALLY. Like wall shelves, vertical storage cubes, this will help you save space on the floor and give your home a minimalist look.
1. Wall baskets or wall shelves
Wall basket can be used for mails or important documents for home office space to avoid clutter. Especially when you are limited on space for office use. Not only it will help you stay organized but also keep it away from kids – these little explorers have all the energy to mess up with important documents in your house.
2. Get a nice looking closet that could Hide Extra clutter
Are you struggling with extra clutter in your house that has just nowhere to hide?
Getting these IKEA closets is the best idea to keep clutter away. Also, try to assign a designated spot for everything you have to stay organized. You can get similar closets like these if you need something to hide clutter.
3. TV stand with storage
If you plan to have a TV stand anytime soon? get something with tons of storage that can be stored in a mess-free, clutterless way.
For a small living room space, getting a TV stand with storage is a great way to hide clutter. You can select some really nice looking tv stands for your Tv lounge or room Tv here according to the color scheme and home configuration.
I have got the one with Fireplace because I was really fond of having a fireplace in my home. If you want to have a TV stand with a fireplace, this is the one I have. You can choose to have a fireplace stand with storage cabinets depending on the space allocation.
4. Buy a space-saving furniture
Most of the dining-table chairs have slightly tilted back, which takes up more space and makes it so hard to maneuver.
When you buy a piece of furniture for your house, make sure it is space-saving in every aspect yet it fulfills the purpose. Also, the chairs should most preferably be close to 90 degrees. That being said, too much tilted back chairs ain’t going to be space-saving in any way.
Here are some space-saving dining sets.
5. Desk letter sorter or organizer
Having a small letter sorter could save you tons of clutter on your desk.
6. Storage bins for anywhere that are space-saving.
Similarly, when we talk about space-saving bins,- after a lot of trial and error, now I would prefer to get rectangular or square shape storage bins, not with the wide tops and narrow bottoms.
For a perfect space-saving usage when you are struggling with small space, you can get good looking bins in a perfect cube shape.
7. Pantry organizers
When you buy pantry organizers like cereal containers etc, make sure all your containers follow the same cylindrical or rectangular shape, (whatever you prefer) no wide tops and narrow bottoms. This will help you save tons of space in your pantry.
Pantry space might be limited for some people. if not all, – thus, when you have a small space, also you want that to look pretty, go for the same family of airtight containers.
8. Got too many linens or clothes – use space-saving bags
When you have less storage space and more linen, you need to use space efficiently around the house. Using Space-saving bags is an ideal solution. But first, you have to purge what linen and towels you don’t use anymore. That’s the best way to save tons of space in your linen closet. Especially, if you have extra pillows or cushions that are sucking up your space entirely.
If are using space-saving bags in order to maximize your space, I highly recommend you buying jumbo space-saving bags rather than small ones as they can take up more stuff in one bag. However, for fairly small storage space, ideally, you should not get medium or the small ones. That way you’ll be able to accommodate everything well.
9. Utilize shed Space
If you are homeowner, or you rent a home where you have the space for putting up an outdoor shed, utilize it. Store kids’ cribs and car seats, etc. if you are planning to have more kids in the future. Clutter-free your home by putting away anything in the shed you may need in the future that you don’t need for now.
If it has leakage issues or having concerns like mold due to weather conditions, elevate it a little bit off the ground and see if things work.
10. Outdoor bench for storage and seating
Summer is a fun time for outdoor activities and kids tend to play a lot outside during the summer season.
Ideally, if you have a front or back yard in your house, not only you should have outdoor seating, but also utilize bench space with more storage.

11. Storage Ottoman
Have an elegant looking storage ottoman that pops up the decor altogether for any room. Ideally, you should choose a complementing color for your lounge that could hide any non-essential clutter like pillows and throws to give your lounge a clean, clutter-free look.
This round tufted ottoman is a great pick for your family room or formal sitting area.
12. Purge and Buy less
Purging does not necessarily mean you must ditch the fairly old stuff and keep buying new ones. Having less stuff to deal with, is the best you can invest in your mental health. In my opinion buy, what you think is necessary and invest in a good purchase.
Moreover, I would never suggest you buy something that is of low quality as it is going to be a total waste of money.
