Easy Ways to Organize Your Cluttered Home
The average person will misplace up to nine items every day and spend 3,680 hours, or 153 days, looking for something over a lifetime. The American home has also tripled in average size in the past half-century, probably because we need more space to keep all that extra stuff.
While it was likely that a family's household had a television and telephone by the 1960s, now the average family has around three televisions and multiple cellphones for each member of the family -- even children. Reports show differing results about the average age a child receives their first cell phone. Some say around 12 years old, but some places report as young as six years old.
It's easy to see why the typical American home has an estimated 300,000 items in it. Even with the drastic increase in home size, many families still have trouble managing clutter and storage. Origami Home Products were designed to help with this by providing households with functional and attractive storage solutions for every room in the house, from office bookshelves to folding kitchen racks.
If you're perpetually running out of home storage space, here are just some ways that you can save space and organize your belongings more easily:
Get bookshelves for your den or home office
Bookshelves are multi-functional pieces of furniture that can be used to store paperwork, picture frames, knick-knacks, and, of course, books. Put your collection of books or trinkets on display instead of keeping them hidden in boxes or stacked haphazardly on the floor.
Organize your kitchen
Pantry organizers can hold and display all of your easily lost spices (among other things). For the avid baker, portable kitchen racks provide ample space to cool your creations and can be easily folded up and put away when you don't need them anymore.
Free up your garage
Even people with two-car garages often have a hard time actually parking two cars in them due to clutter. However, our garage cabinets easily store sports equipment, grill accessories, and more. Yard tool racks will also keep your rakes and shovels from falling in the way of your parking space by holding them securely against the wall.
De-clutter Your Bedroom
The average woman has 30 different outfits and plenty of shoes to match. If your closet space leaves something to be desired, then shoe organizers can make a world of difference to your closet and keep you from tripping over your own feet. For an easy dorm room hack, stick your shoe rack under your bed to maximize closet space.
