Whether it's time for a spring cleaning, or you're just sick of the clutter taking over your home, getting organized can help create efficiency and peace of mind. However, tackling a messy house can seem like a daunting task, and keeping it up is even harder. If you don't know where to start, we've got a list of 10 great (and easy) ways to tackle organization.

  1. Use lists - making lists can help you organize the areas of your home that need to be organized. This way, you can prioritize certain areas, plan times for when you can begin the process, and plan out what materials or supplies you need to procure to do so. Create one master to-do list that encompasses every task you hope to get accomplished. Then create daily to-do lists that break your master plan down into more manageable and achievable chunks. Take no more than 3-6 items at a time from your master list for your daily list. Do not add any more tasks until the others have been completed. Make sure to go back and cross your accomplishments off of the master list. Seeing things checked off bit by bit can keep you motivated to follow through.
  1. Get prepped - how many times have you started a project on a whim and realized halfway through that you don't have the right supplies, storage, or some other necessary thing to continue the task? Make it easy on yourself and prepare for the process of organizing.
