How I Got Organized this January
I always hop on the 'new year, fresh start' train come January, because I feel like it forces me to get organized after a long few months of (what can feel like) everything in excess; holiday decor, gifts, you name it — it piles up so quick and January is the perfect time for a big refresh.
Joe and I spent a lot of time organizing throughout the house in January. We tackled one room at a time, starting with the spaces that felt like they needed it the most (my shoe organization turned out to be my favorite project). Here are some of my favorite organization purchases that have helped to consolidate and stay clutter-free!
Closet organization tip: Swap your clothes out seasonally. There's no reason to rifle through Summer clothes in the Winter and have them take up extra space! Quarterly, stow away off-season clothes in storage bins, vacuum-sealed bags or a spare closet.

Office organization tip: Set aside 5 minutes to declutter your desk at the end of each workday. File away papers, clear unnecessary post-its, and put stray pens back where they belong. This is such a simple thing to do that is also so easily pushed aside — but I promise it will have a major impact on your productivity!

Laundry organization tip: Try using labeled bins or baskets for different categories like cleaning products, stain essentials, and any other misc. laundry room items. When everything has a dedicated space, it at least takes a little stress off of laundry days, when everything is in an easy-to-find place.

Junk drawer organization tip: Introducing drawer and cable organizers into my junk drawer was a complete game-changer. This forced me to get rid of so much stuff floating around aimlessly that I didn't need and keep those misc. junk drawer essentials easy to find.
