Ideas to Organize Your Home

Now that all your holiday decor is super organized it’s time to declutter the rest of the house.

I always like to reorganize spaces during this time of the year.

Sometimes it’s just a small project like cleaning out a desk or organizing a closet or even a kitchen pantry.

Other times it’s a bit more work but so worth it when it’s finished, like when Anne created a drop zone in her garage or I gave my husband’s closet a complete makeover.

If you live in a smaller home you may not have as much space for storage check out our friend Heidi’s tips.
