Top 5 Home Organizing Hacks from a Professional Organizer

Top 5 Home Organizing Hacks from a Professional Organizer
By: Megan Nelson, Co-Owner + Founder of Nest with the Nelsons, + Bianca Zipse of the Morning Project

We love working with friends! Just this past week, we had the honor of working with Bianca Zipse of The Morning Project on our very own pantry design and renovation. And, wow! I can’t beat around the bush here, I had NO idea how much went into organizing a pantry.

From the prep work, to the design, to the bins, organization, and determining the best system, this was a big undertaking. Luckily, we worked with Bianca every step of the way to make the project a breeze. And, we had a blast working out and dreaming of the design. We even went on a shopping extravaganza at the Container Store together – it was dangerous for our wallets, but OH SO FUN!

If you haven’t had a chance to see the before and after shots of this total pantry transformation, stop what you’re doing, and do that now. Then come right back here to catch these can’t miss home organizing hacks from a professional organizer.

Just in the knick of time for fall, we’re hitting you with our best organizing tips from the organizing expert, Bianca Zipse of the Morning Project. Kick back, grab that pumpkin spiced latte, and enjoy these perfect home organizing hacks to elevate your home and your season.

Here it goes!

1. The Closet Hack
When you use matching slim velvet hangers it not only looks aesthetically pleasing but it also keeps your clothes from slipping off the hangers and sitting nicely against one another allowing more room for your closet space.

2. The Linen Closet Hack
The best way to keep your sheets organized is to keep them in their matching pillowcase. Keeping your sheets together in pillowcases is the simplest way to make sure all your sheets, as well as their pillowcases and fitted sheets are neat, organized, and super easy to find.

3. The Pantry Hack
When you remove the bulky packaging in your pantry, not only are you saving valuable space, but you are then also able to visually see the items you are running low on in front of your face. No more buying 10 more boxes of Pop Tarts, creating more clutter. 

{Personal testimony from Megan here – I absolutely agree with this pantry hack. Since Bianca organized our pantry, created much-needed zones for storage, and created an organized system, we are able to see all of our food so much more easily. Not to mention, I’ve cooked more in the last week than I have all summer since our pantry received a major overhaul with Bianca’s special touch. I can’t recommend her organizing service enough!!}

4. The Garage Hack
Creating ones in your garage allows you to evaluate wasted space more easily so you can know what supplies you will need for each zone. When you have zones created it also allows you to find things more simply, and it is much easier to go through a purge every 6 months to rid your space of unwanted or duplicate items.

5. The Toy Room Hack
When you have littles and they cannot read yet, it is hard to teach them to pick up after themselves without creating madness within your toy room. Using picture labels allows you to teach your children the responsibility of picking up after themselves and actually putting it into the correct place. Major mom win!!
