How to organize the house: general tips

Organizing the house is a sequential process that basically works on creating a routine and defining the spaces of objects within the house. Those that are still in use are organized harmoniously, and those that are no longer used are discarded. That way, it’s much easier to keep the environment tidy and save work.

1. Optimize your spaces

Every corner of the house can be used and turned into a functional space. Just plan calmly and think of new ways to use spaces that are not always explored.

2. Define the location of each thing

Compartmentalizing helps you both when tidying the house and at times of day-to-day when you need to find, pick up and store things.

How to organize the kitchen

The pair of personal organizers points out that organization is a cyclical process, and the same idea applies to the kitchen. “In the organization we have a cycle: discard, categorize and organize. In the kitchen, the tip is to leave the most frequently used utensils in easily accessible places, in cupboards and drawers that are closer or not so high”, they say.

6. Optimize spaces
