Whether you’re moving into a new house, wanting to declutter your area, or thinking of ways to make tasks easier, organization is key for a peaceful living. While most people see organizing as dreary and boring, there are actually various ways to make it fun and easy.

Create Your Own Kits – for Cleaning, Styling or Other Chores
Sometimes, when we’re doing multiple tasks at home, we tend to forget to put things back in its proper place. Instead of finishing the next task after the other, we spend time looking for the item we lost. But if you have your own kit – whether for cleaning or even styling, you can easily get the items you need for such task. Just make sure all the supplies needed for the task are inside the kit.
Keep Important Files Easy to Locate Using Color-coded Folders
Use folders to segregate and arrange files based on how you want them. That way, it’s easier to keep track of records and avoid misplacing them. Instead of the usual brown-colored folders, get various colors of it and have some color-coding scheme. Don’t forget to put labels!
Cook Meals And Store Them In Personal Pans Or Ziploc Bags
There are nights when you’re either too tired or too dedicated to prepare meals at home. When you find yourself doing the latter, opt for freezer-friendly meals that you can prepare early and store in ziploc bags or personal pans. For a quick meal, pull it out from the freezer, then fry or bake your very own home-cooked meal. You’d save time to prepare and also avoid leftovers.
Use Old, Large Cans As Spool For Cables And Wires

Use an old, large can of preserved fruits and use it as a spool for your long wires. Through this hack, you are also able to extend the life of your cables and wires. If you don’t have large cans at home, you may also use an empty roll of toilet paper with two circular card boards pasted together to form the spool for your cables.
