Most of us strive to live a balanced life, but in reality, most of us get caught easily in a whirlwind of activities. I’ll admit that there are days that I feel like I am part of a circus. This is why I appreciate creative tools and ideas that can help simplify the home. After all, simplicity is the key to a well-balanced life and true happiness.
It’s time to tackle the mess and take back your space! The mere thought of minimizing, cleaning, and organizing can be deterring for many, but you’ll find clever ideas and solutions in Organization Hacks by Carrie Higgins that will inspire you to take on these arduous tasks. Carrie Higgins, the organization expert behind the Making Lemonade, shows how you can achieve and maintain balance in your home and regain the love you felt when you first moved in.
From solutions for decluttering cluttered cabinets and organizing jewelry to tackling different areas of your home and properly folding a fitted sheet, this book covers it all. I’m in the midst of moving and I found her moving hacks (pages 208 – 209) helpful, considering how physically and mentally exhausting moving can be with the sorting, packing, and cleaning. I also loved 10 Ways to Organize with Mason Jars (pages 56 -57). I use mason jars for just about everything! Mason jars are also perfect for organizing everything from office supplies to small craft supplies. One of my favorite ideas from this section is turning a mason jar into a soap dispenser for a farmhouse-inspired look.

I superglued mason canning jars in my kitchen to store cooking utensils.
I use a variety of containers/bins.
I get my daughter involved in organization. It helps to get kids started on it young.

I’m always looking for ways to organize. I really like the stick a lazy susan underneath your sink and put your cleaning supplies on it.
I don’t have one, but need a lot of organization hacks. My mom was a genius at organization. Me, not so much. I could definitely use this.
I use an organizer box to store my earrings.
I use empty coffee cans to store my tools and stuff.
I like to use the fabric storage bins to store this and that..I have them on shelves in my bedroom and they look nice too
Organizing is easier when I group like items together. I organize my closet by color. All reds together, all blues together, etc.
Pretty much I need more help than I can offer. I start off good but then fall back into old habits that clutter stuff up. I think the best thing I did to control my kids craft supplies (and my pen love) is see thru bins with lids and rolling carts with see thru boxes.
I keep my pens organized on my desk by re-purposing cans and decorating them by painting them bright colors.
I use stackable trays to organize my children’s school work.
