The second most popular New Year’s resolution is to get more organized, according to statistics from the University of Scranton. With that in mind, we have provided simple ideas to de-clutter and organize some of the most used spaces in the house, which are all fairly simple and inexpensive to do.

Closet

According to Real Simple, a good place to start when tackling a closet is to go through your clothes and evaluate what to keep and what to get rid of. If you haven’t worn it in a year or more, or it no longer fits, donate it or take it out of your closet.

If you’re cramped for space in your closet, try using slim hangers because they’ll take up much less room. Also, consider using stackable bins for storage, as they make for a great place to put accessories such as scarves, belts, and jewelry. Organize your clothing. There are many ways to do this but two quick and easy ways are by color and by article of clothing. This will save you time when trying to find something in your closet.
