How to plan & organize:The following will help you plan well and make sure what you planned actually turns out the way you imagined. Or sometimes we think something, then buy an item but they do not go well together. Then, we end up having that item unused. So, let us start.
- Plan first:
- Make a simple plan of what you do not like, what will make your space a better one
- Identify what you want to get rid of like you do not want clutter on the washbasin area, or you want someplace to keep the toothbrushes etc.
- Then, also identify where you want things. You cannot keep the toothbrushes somewhere on the other side of the bathroom away from the washbasin, for example.
- Find the product that solves:
- Now find the product that solves your problem.
- Do thorough reading as the product you buy might end up useless because you cannot stick it where you thought of, for example, because the wall and the sticker of the products don’t go well. So, you can avoid such things by reading about the product.
- Do each step one after the other
- You may organize all the space at once but it is better to do one area at a time. That way, you know how each step is turning out. May be just by placing one place holder is all you need. So going easy and one step at a time not only saves you a lot of work but can save you money too.
- Watch videos made on organizing:
- Just watching more than a handful of videos can give plenty of ideas.
- Many times you could just do what you have and not even buy new items.
Consider these points:
- before you start, throw away what you really do not need, move stuff out of the space if they do not belong there, etc.
- Can you solve (organize) with what you have:
- many times, we do not need organizers. Just some creative thinking can get your problems solved. So just think about what’s there in your home and see if that can be used to organize
- Consider others’ opinions:
- for me, this turned out to be a lesson because others can give us ideas, drawbacks, or pros on the organizing project way before we end up facing that problem.
- and another thing, if you have elders at home, they may not be able to use things in the way you do. so considering others into planning gives you a mature plan
- Plan before buying how & where you want to use it. Because some items may be very useful but they may not suit your home because they need certain hanging space etc. For example, it is difficult to use a wardrobe hanger everywhere or you cannot stick-on a wall-rack on a regular wall, the wall has to be smooth.
- So start with research, where you have space, and what you can place. Or vis-e-versa, look at an item, then decide if you could put it to use in your home or apartment. Then once you have the plan for how & where you will use it, go with the purchase.
Note of Caution:
- Consider Children & Babies
- When using hanging items, care should be taken when you have children or babies at home; especially, under the age of 10 as they may not know how to use the hanging organizers and may either pull them down or use it inappropriately and hurt themselves or others.
- Placement & Fire Hazard
- Always place them such that even if they fall by accident, they do not cause damages to people or pets. That is, do not place them in areas where pets or children or someone is sitting and these may fall on them by accident.
- Always be careful, to keep items and especially clothes and such away from the flame. And when you are planning a hanging organizer, never place it over or near flame because we cannot predict how long the items will be that we hang on them, nor we cannot ensure if they do not fall by accident.
- Load & Capacity:
- Never use the item by placing items that it cannot hold, do not overload. Only some manufacturers give the load capacity, but we get the idea by looking at the product that it can only bear so much load. So, go with that and always remember not to overload it. Cause it can not only tear or break the organiser but it can damage the wall or wardrobe were you hung it, or even fall on others or pets.
