As a new year begins, it’s important to set some goals and resolutions. Getting organized is one of the most popular resolutions people make every year, and yet every year we find ourselves in the same clutter.
Staying organized could actually help you with other new year’s resolutions you might have, like using what crafts supplies you have, spending more time crafting, and being less stressed in your creative space. Many times we don’t keep our resolutions because we just don’t know where to start.
Here are 3 Tips to Help You Stay Organized in
the New Year!
First things first, you have to declutter. We’re all guilty of holding on to papers we don’t need, or saving boxes of embellishments we never use. Start the new year right by getting rid of things that are no longer useful, and just taking up space. Decide which supplies you want to donate, sell, keep and organize, or throw away.
To help declutter ask yourself these questions:
- Have I used it in the last year?
- Do I plan to use it this year?
- Is it usable?
2. Give Everything a Home
One reason why we become so cluttered in the first place is because things don’t have a place where they belong. Then, it becomes easier and easier to pile things in a corner or in a random box, and before you know it your room is filled with clutter!
Investing in storage systems like cabinets and
drawers will help you get organized, and more importantly, stay organized.
You’ll get into the habit of putting things back where they belong, and clutter
will be a thing of the past.
Best Craft Organizer cabinets are specifically designed with crafters and hobbyist in mind. Each cabinet can be customized with Drawers or Paper Shelves to fit your specific needs. Drawers are even available in three different sizes.
3. Label Everything
Labeling cabinets, drawers, and filing systems is the best way to give things a permanent home. So long as you have a label, it’s easy to stick to a system of organizing, no matter the system.
If you’re trying to get organized, a label maker will become your best friend! Whether you decide to color code, hand write labels, or print them out, they’re all equally effective at keeping you organized.
The end of the year is the perfect time to stop procrastinating and start organizing. Be patient with yourself and go in with a positive attitude. Getting and staying organized will take time and dedication. Always remember…it’s progress over perfection.
