Home Organization Hacks

Dread cleaning? Make it easier by staying organized all year long. Here are four home organization hacks.

1. GET IT OFF THE COUNTER

Your poor counter. The once majestic centerpiece of your kitchen. Now covered in junk mail, school projects, and magazines. Restore your counter to its previous glory, and keep it that way. Designating a space as your home command center will help establish good habits and clear up your kitchen in no time.

2. PUT IT ON THE WALL

Stop thinking horizontally, start thinking vertically. By using wall space more efficiently, you’ll clear clutter off of surfaces. Go for wall-mounted cubbies in the mud room, hanging shoe racks in the hallways, and places to store your keys, hats, coats, and anything else that usually ends up on the floor or on the back of a chair, and your life will get easier. We promise.

3. PASS IT ON

For you parents with younger kids out there, turn organization into an early habit by making it interactive. Use visual labels to indicate what goes where in a clear, understandable way. And don’t be afraid to show them how it’s done. Showing that organization isn’t a tedious, horrible task (though it may seem) is important to creating good habits early that will help your kids (and you) throughout your lives.

4. KEEP IT UP

Not giving up is the hardest thing about keeping a home organized. Remember that the goal of getting organized is to make your life easier, and if the opposite is happening, take a look at your process and make the necessary changes. We’ve got plenty of ideas to get you started right here on our blog.
  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.

  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.

  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
