Get excited about ORGANIZING!
We think editing is the smartest place to start when updating a space. Get rid of any items that you no longer need; donate- trash- recycle- whatever that looks like to you. Go through EVERYTHING, closets, cabinets, and drawers. This phase always looks worse before it gets better!
After editing, it's time to organize! Start by putting like items together, this will help to determine the size of the bin, box, or tray you will need to place your items in when you are ready. If you're on a budget get creative with what you use to store and organize your items- Shoe boxes, mason jars, Lazy Susan's, kitchen utensil trays and Tupperware containers are all good and inexpensive options!
Below are some great ideas from Cosmopolitan to inspire you to think savvy about the containers you store items in and how you store them!
