Get Organized Month! Check Out These Organization Tips

Streamline your home and belongings by getting organized this month.


January is Get Organized Month, a natural public awareness campaign that has been around since 2005. It’s celebrated all month long with many homeowners, business owners, and individuals finding out how to improve their organization in all aspects of their lives. Here’s how to get your home organized (and keep it that way!) this month.


Get rid of the old. When it comes to organizing your home, it’s important to take stock of what you’ve got. Go through your belongings and determine what you can donate/get rid of and what you want to keep. Reducing the clutter helps to instantly make your home look neat and organized.


Go through room by room. It can be overwhelming to have to organize the whole house. Start where it needs it the most, whether that’s in the cluttered kitchen or the office with mounds of paper stacks. Be sure you don’t end up getting distracted and doing several rooms at once as this may slow down the progress and hinder your success.


Update your home inventory. Whether you went shopping in the after-holiday sales or received expensive items underneath your holiday tree, you’ll want to add them to your home inventory so that they are protected under your homeowners insurance policy.
