The ultimate list to organise your home

Basically there are two phases of me:

  • Ah! It’s just a few papers and a few clothes. I’ll clean later
  • No, no it should be perfectly organised!! Dresses on the left, shirts on the right.

Turns out I am in the second phase of me now. Keeping on doing list posts is an side effect of that probably. But let it be anything, posts, shelves, home, if it’s organised it gives an amazing feeling. And it isn’t only me!

Now that’s amazing isn’t it? But how can you be super organised? Read the post below to know how.

    Love all of these tips! I must say that I am the worse at cleaning, I hold onto stuff thinking I will use it in some ways after when I very rarely do, so this list will be helpful to declutter and see what needs to be done! Love the idea of organising hair pins on the magnet and having a notepad always with you and in the car x

    I would be really happy if I could ever convince myself to follow all the tips you mention. I am a really bad organizer and I have only a little time available …or I am just making excuses…
    The tips are really helpful and I will give a try to some of them.
    Thank you
