Shop the new book:
Tip 1: Divide all-purpose bins
The Home Edit team suggests categorizing by color, age or category. "Kids can organize by color before they can read," they shared with "GMA."
Tip 2: Sealable pouches for puzzles
"Puzzle boxes are usually annoying and fall apart. Unless you’re using them as an art decoration in rainbow order, toss the box and put the pieces in a zippered pouch. Attach a photo of the puzzle to the front or you can cut the front of the box and include it in the bag instead."
Tip 3: Over-the-door storage for books
Think about ways to get creative with the organization. For example, trying out over-the-door storage for books is a great way to maximize your space in a small area. "It makes the most of often wasted vertical space on a door or wall and is totally customizable!"
Tip 4: Sentimental box
If you have a hard time parting with your child's arts and crafts, The Home Edit team suggests keeping a box in your child’s playroom for sentimental items like artwork and crafts.
Tip1: Think vertically
"If you don’t have a big desktop or hardworking shelves, think vertically to create space and open up your desk for more versatility and breathing room."
Tip 2: Hide your cords
Tangled cords can be an eyesore in a home office. You can purchase a rectangular box to hide power strips and alleviate clutter.
Tip 3: Touch-it-once rule
The touch-it-once rule works as follows: Pick it up, look it over and don’t just put it down -- put it where it belongs. It’s that easy!
Tip 1: Designate zones
"Create designated zones for items to have easy access for daily use items, including hair tools. Place one of the command Grippers on the back of the vanity door -- each can hold up to 4 pounds."
Tip 2: Keep your counter organized
Place a divided turntable on the countertop to store all the essentials and to create an aesthetic of organization.
Tip 3: Check your expirations
"There is a chart in the new Home Edit book that tells you how long to keep a beauty product. If you have trouble remembering when you bought a product, write the date you opened it in a permanent marker."
