Make organization your 2017 New Year’s resolution and you will be surprised how easy it is to keep it up. Look below for our best methods for straightening up your home.


  • Don’t overload your bookshelves with knick-knacks. Your shelves should have a majority of books, cd’s, and DVD’s.
  • Keep unwanted cords out of sight with a charging station. Designate one area of your living room to charge your items.
  • Magazine racks can be helpful to keep the growing stack off your coffee table. Discard old magazines after you have read them.
  • Tidy up as you move through the house. If you’re passing from room-to-room pick up articles as you go. Don’t leave toys laying around if you are passing the toy chest on your way out of the family room.

  • Designate a specific spot for shoes and coats, preferably somewhere close to the entrance of the house.
  • Together, a coat rack, shoe shelf, and bench will convert a doorway to your house into a mud room.
