1. Know what you are looking for
Avoid adding to your existing clutter. Examine what you need rather that what you want. You'll be happier with the end results.
2. Shop by room
Organize one step at a time. Start in one room of your home, get an idea of what you want for the room and then look for the right product. Taking on too much at once will only fluster you. Plus, finishing one room will inspire you to move onto the next one!
3. Measure TWICE
Come prepared. Measure the height, width and depth of every drawer, closet and cubby. You don't want to be going back and forth trying to get the right size.
BONUS TIP: Our online store can now help you prepare ahead. Looking through our website can help you get an idea of what you can find at the store, including product descriptions and dimensions. Feel free to call us with any other questions.
4. Think outside the box
If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, don't be afraid to try something different. Whether it's using an Umbra Artala trash bin ($15.99) as an umbrella stand or a Reisenthel NewsRack ($49.99) as a small laundry basket, the best solutions are not always the most obvious ones.
