Getting the Whole Family Organized
In a family unit, there are usually some organizers and at least one or more members of the family that struggle with organizational skills. In order for your home life to function in an optimally smooth fashion, everyone needs to acquire organizational skills.
In the spirit of family togetherness, those who have mastered the skill of organization can lend a hand and some helpful advice to those still striving to acquire the skill.
Maintaining Order In Generalized Spaces
There are areas of a home that are used by all members of the family. These are spaces where you can encourage organization by providing storage bins, baskets, or shelf space. A laundry room will be a more functional space if everyone does their part to keep it neat and orderly. You can provide an assortment of hampers so that everyone who understands the concept of sorting clothes can toss their clothes into the proper hamper. You can ease some of the workload of whomever does the laundry by supplying a box or basket for each person’s clean clothes to be placed in. They can then carry the clothes to their room, put them in the proper place and return the basket to the laundry room.
Mornings can be less hectic if you establish a designated place for everyone to organize the items they need to leave home with. Provide a basket for each person to put their personal items in. You can also use this same set up for sorting family mail, messages and reminder notes.
Closet organizers are a wonderful way to help your spouse and kids get the most space out of their closet area. Bookcases in a child’s room provide a place for organizing games, toys and books. Wall units with shelf space can also help maintain order in a child’s room.
The master bedroom design should include the proper amount of storage space for clothing and accessories. You can store considerably more in an organized closet or drawer than you can in one that is cluttered and chaotic. Shoe organizers, over the door storage racks and wall units with hooks can be helpful in maintaining order in the bedroom.
If you have a home office area, you already know how important it is to keep your work space organized. Providing a child with some desk top organizational items will teach them the value of keeping their work space clean. It’s easier to be productive in an efficiently designed workspace. This is a life lesson your child will benefit from long after they leave home.
