Organizing your home probably seems like a tedious job, but it really doesn’t have to be overwhelming or stressful if you have a plan.

The number one place in your home to be organized is your kitchen, this is where you cook your meals, entertain guests and of course the best part – EAT! So what tips can be implemented to organize such an important place? First, gut your cupboards and cabinets!
Now, don’t be overwhelmed with the mess this may cause. You need to keep a focused mind and thoughtfully go through this process. Once you have all your cupboards bare, you need to decide where you would like specific things like your dishes, glassware, cooking utensils and of course my favorite – spices. Once you have decided exactly where you want things put, incorporate smarter storage tools such as, a Pantry Organizer or a Bamboo Utensil Tray from our good friends at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Keep your counters clear except for a décor piece or two; for example, the Ace Zebra Wood Tray to hold fruit, drinks and other items. Perfect for both transitional and contemporary kitchens & extremely versatile.
Bedrooms can become quite cluttered with extra clothes, blankets, books and so many other little nick knacks that you sometimes cannot even see your dresser.

If you are limited on space then a storage bed might be a great option such as the Serra Bed which can be useful for extra clothing or blankets thus keeping your space clean and organized.
