Organizing things that tend to spread out through the house
1. Loose change
Designate a cup or jar to collect loose change around the house. I call it my tip jar since I seem to find money in the laundry and in the couch. 🙂
2. Store coupons
Use a mailing envelope to hold all your store coupons and keep them in your car’s glove compartment or in your purse. If you make an unplanned stop somewhere, you can quickly see if you have any coupons and take advantage of the extra savings.
Keep all your batteries in one spot in the house so you aren’t rummaging through drawers and closets looking for what you need.
4. Charger cords
Store chargers for phones, cameras, etc in an assigned drawer or container. Labeling the cords saves time looking for the one you need. See Cord Identification for more details.
5. Nail polish/clippers
Store nail polish, clippers, emery boards, etc. in a small container so everything you need is in one location. Have small kids? Store it up high in a closet. It only takes one spilled nail polish experience to realize the importance of keeping these items safely out of the reach of curious little children.
