Getting things organized in your personal space increases efficiency and creates a more relaxing atmosphere. To accomplish more tasks in less time this new year, it’s best to reduce clutter and keep things organized. 

Here are some simple tips to help you welcome 2023 with a clean slate!

1. Commit to decluttering your home. 

First things first, declutter your home by donating old clothes, books, kitchenware, furniture, and more instead of throwing them away. Not only does donating keep a home clutter-free, but it helps those in need. You can also give back to the neighborhood by holding a garage sale or giving away pre-loved items as hand-me-downs to family and friends.

2. Look around and check what can be recycled. 

Reusing glass, plastic, and wood containers as upcycled organizers for closets, drawers, and workstations will save you a lot of money. Turn glass jars into pencil holders, or upcycle plastic containers into garden planters. Shoeboxes and jewelry boxes can be used as sturdy dresser drawer organizers. 

3. Try going paperless. 

Environmental issues extend beyond plastic. Paper also clutters homes and deforests. Reducing energy, water, and tree consumption help protect the environment. . Many organizations provide paperless billing and numerous ways to unsubscribe from regular mail. Set up a receipt email account to arrange them at tax time and avoid paper clutter on countertops and in bags.

4. Choose sustainable storage solutions.

Look for storage containers created from natural or recycled materials when sorting your valuables. Bamboo, abaca, rattan, and water hyacinths are common materials in locally produced baskets and organizers that typically have a greater quality and are also biodegradable.
