I’m really good at organizing, and I mean like, really good. I place all my schoolwork in a binder and organize them by course and date. I organize my pantry by category of food. I organize my refrigerator kind of like a game of Tetris because my fridge is small for my needs.
My problem? I can’t seem to stay organized.
I’ll go on a hardcore cleaning spree and my apartment will be spotless and smell like candles and cleaning products.
2 days later, my laundry is strewn across the floor or over the side of the hamper, rather than in it, my refrigerator looks like a bomb went off, my pantry will look like my dog went canoodling in there when in reality, it was me, and my house just won’t smell fresh anymore.
How can I fix this?
Well, for one thing, I can stop being lazy. I’m pretty bad about putting things back where they belong.
Secondly, I recommend a trash barrel in every room. I often will leave a cup or a bottle on the table because I’m too laaaazy to throw it away in the kitchen. Keep a small receptacle for trash in each room and when it’s full, dump it.
Third, I mean, back to the lazy thing. Just put the damn laundry in the hamper.
Next, I love these bins that you can purchase on Amazon. They’re great for smaller refrigerators that need a little more help in the organization department. You can find the link here – Refrigerator Pull-Out Bin
I love all types of bins and boxes and baskets. I also love lamps! I love this lamp that has a power outlet built in for charging a device, and also has compartments to keep things organized such as pens, coins, or whatever you keep on your desk or nightstand! You an find the link to the lamp here – Desk Lamp with Power Outlet
Also, to keep my apartment smelling fresh, since we aren’t allowed to have burning candles, I have this awesome wax melter that I’ve had for years. You can buy any type of wax cubes you want, any brand. Since it’s the beginning of fall, I am loving these Farm Apple Pumpkin wax melts from Better Homes & Gardens. I’ve provided a link for Amazon, but they can also be purchased at Walmart!
