Ways to Organize like a Professional

StaxUP Storage | June 13, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

Organization is an essential skill, and learning how to organize like a professional takes things to a whole new level. Sometimes, it can take a lot of work to stay motivated and keep our spaces tidy. However, starting with smaller tasks can make staying focused and getting the job done easier. Rather than feeling overwhelmed by the sheer size of a task, begin with one space at a time, and build from there. Even if you only tidy up a small portion of that space, you have still accomplished something.

In this article, we will share some tips and tricks for organizing your closet, car, and desk – three areas that people often struggle with the most.

How to Organize the Office

A cluttered desk can make work even more overwhelming. Find a place for your office desk accessories and essentials to create a productive workspace. Keep only the essentials on your desk to stay productive and avoid feeling weighed down.

Now don't go throwing all the other things in your drawers, that can get just as cluttered and messy. Find an organization box or sorter for smaller items, like paper clips, sticky notes, and pens, to ensure that everything has a designated home in your drawer.

How to Organize the Closet

Have you ever opened your closet and been buried under an avalanche of clothes? We've all been there, but keeping your closet organized is essential. As Marie Kondo once said, "keep only what sparks joy."

Start by putting the clothes you regularly wear in one pile and then sort through the rest. If you have difficulty figuring out where something belongs, consider whether it serves a purpose in your life right now.

If you have clothing items that are still valuable or bulky, such as wedding attire, winter gear, or a prom dress, store them in a storage unit until you need them again. Check out your local StaxUP Storage and find the perfect unit for your storage needs.  

How to Organize the Car

How frustrating is it when you're driving and can't find your chapstick or other essential items? Try finding a plastic or acrylic box that fits in your center console to keep everything organized.

Make a list of the items you often need when driving around, such as wipes, hair ties, chapstick, tissues, and hand sanitizer, and make sure you have a spot for them. This will save you from digging through an endless pit of mess the next time you need something. If you have tried reaching for it before, you should have a spot for it.

Organize your glove box by getting a folder and labeling it with the documents you keep there. This will help you keep track of what needs to be updated or swapped out, avoiding future frantic searches for essential documents.

These tips and tricks can be applied to multiple areas of your home and life. Remember to start small, stay focused, and stay motivated to create a more organized, productive space. After you’ve organized these areas and have items that you would like to store rather than donating or throwing out, check out and all the storage options available!
