We currently live in a home that is around 1200 square feet. Choosing furniture that is either multi- functional or has some sort of storage component was key for cutting clutter. One of the best purchases I made was getting a storage ottoman for my living room. Our ottoman not only serves as a piece that is visually pleasing to our space, it’s a comfortable spot to prop up my feet after a long day, and serves as a spot to hide away some of our kids toys. Here are a couple of stylish options that are budget friendly.
Baskets are so versatile when it comes to organizing a space (or for hiding your clutter). Baskets can be very stylish that can work in closets, drawers, kitchen cabinets, or simply sitting out in plain view. Here are a couple stylish yet affordable options. I have a pair of baskets that are similar to the first one below, that serve as shoe storage for our back-door.
Command hooks are such a great tool to use around the home to keep your spaces a little more organized. I did a full post on how I decorate my home and keep things a little more organized around the home. I keep my kids collapsible foot-stool secured to the inside of my bathroom cabinet door with command hooks. If your interested in hearing more information, you can check that post out– here. I absolutely loved how the folks over at A Bowl Full of Lemons— organized their measuring cups on the inside of their kitchen cabinets using command hooks. If your interested you can find that post, here.
I would love to hear from some of you about how you organize your spaces! Do any of you have any go-to items that you use frequently? Stay tuned for upcoming blog posts about our living room make-over.
