I'm super excited to be featured on Ashton Mortgage Solutions' blog this month sharing home organization tips. She couldn't have picked a better time than now. Susan Ashton is a good friend and very knowledgeable Mortgage Broker that has taught me alot about how things work in the mortgage industry, It's amazing how many myths are out there. I highly recommend her as the best person to talk to if you have any questions about all things mortgages. Thank you Sue for this amazing opportunity!!

Over the years I have seen how keeping my home organized has changed my life both personally and professionally. I have discovered how happy it makes me and how much easier it makes my life. Common areas in the home like pantries, closets and bathrooms usually need more frequent organization. So in the spirit of organization, I would like to share ways that have worked for me in my home and I hope they will work for you too.
This can be overwhelming in the beginning as you decide where to begin but you’ve got this
Declutter, Declutter, Declutter – Before any organization is done you need to declutter. I know it’s not fun but you can tackle it in phases.
Storage - Once cleared, everything left in your home or office needs to have a place and that’s where storage comes in. You will be surprised at how much space you have to store everything with some proper storage and thinking about how you want your space to function.
Closet & Bedroom Organization – my closets tend to change by season, so depending on how big your closets you can separate by seasons, you can have side with winter clothing and the other with summer clothing.
Bathroom Organization – We all know how messy this space gets when everyone is trying to get out of the house in the morning and the best thing you can do to maintain your sanity is to keep it as functional and organized as you can.
Pantry –one of the most challenging spots to fix in all homes but don’t you worry, you know how your home functions, make it work for you and your family. I love to use clear containers and labels in my pantry. Make easy for your family to reach and access snacks and cooking ingredients.
The junk drawer – Yes we all have the “Catch all drawer” it has receipts, nails, coupons, pens, loose change, advil, band aids, oh my goodness everything!! But there is hope, plan out your storage. Even if things in that drawer are a mishmash of things you use often it can still be stored in a way the works well. I absolutely love those expandable drawer organizers. Get creative if those don’t fit in your drawers, use pretty muffin tins, make up trays, ice-cube trays, yes, why not? Anything to get your home organized
