time-is-now-to-get-organizedNow that the holidays are behind us, it may be a good time to finally clean out that pantry or clothes drawer you have been putting off for months.

You may want to organize the garage or perhaps take toll of areas of the home that require deep cleaning.

Organizing doesn’t always have to pertain to the home. For example, when we travel it’s nice to have things properly arranged and set out in a manner that makes it easy for us to find items while we are away.

Here are a few tips and tricks that may help you around the home and when you travel.

Button holder

This is a great idea. A friend of mine suggested this trick to me when I only wanted to take a few pairs of earrings on a holiday.

It’s a great way to keep a set of earrings together on your next trip.

Next time you purchase a clothing garment that comes with the extra button attached, be sure to keep it in a box for this idea.

Simply fasten your pierced earrings through the buttonholes and place in your travel jewelry box.

This is also great for your jewelry holder at home.

Another great tip for travelling with your jewelry is to use hard eyeglass cases. These are great for storing and packing your bracelets, earrings and necklaces.

Insulated lunch bags

I love it when you can repurpose things. If you have a stack of kid’s insulated lunch bags in your pantry then you can use them for toiletry kits. This is a great idea for those messy items like toothpaste, hair gels and shampoos that tend to leak over your other toiletry items in your kit. Separate the leak-prone items into the lunch bag and you are set.

Ribbon holder

Ribbons are probably the most annoying things to try to keep organized. One of the best ways I have seen to store these spools is to use the inexpensive, plastic storage containers you can find in dollar stores. Look for the ones with the holes in the sides.

Place your ribbon spools inside the plastic container and pull the loose end through the holes. The box will keep the ribbons all in order and you are able to pull whatever amount of ribbon you require with ease.

Ice cube trays

Use ice cube trays as organizers in your office. They are fantastic for paper clips, staples, thumbtacks and other small items. Not only will they keep all these items separate, they will make it easy to reach for what you need at any time.
