Home organisation for sustainable living

Home organisation for sustainable living

You may have heard the famous saying: the less you own, the less owns you. For homeowners, these words ring true in our daily lives—when our kitchen benches overflow with clutter, or when our closets burst open with old clothes we should have thrown out years ago!

Remember the relief of finishing a big clean-up? Sitting back, exhausted, but feeling like you can finally breathe? Decluttering your home opens up space in your mind for calmness, peace, and joy.

Imagine feeling that sense of peace every day. By organising your home simply and sustainably, you’ll feel your worries and stresses melting away. 

So let’s put a plan together today, together. You work hard. You deserve it!

Here’s the magic formula: Simplicity, storage, and sustainability

If there are three words you need to remember in your home organisation journey, it’s storage, simplicity, and sustainability. 

Let’s start with storage—the first step towards a clean, clutter-free home. 

When you think about storage, what comes to mind? Big cardboard boxes labelled with sticker tape? Plastic Tupperware containers? That old chest of drawers you’ve had for decades? It doesn’t have to be this way!

Here’s our advice:

  1. Make storage beautiful. 
  2. Choose eco-friendly, eye-catching solutions that add charm and charisma to your home. 
  3. Break your plans down room-by-room and item-by-item. If you struggle with cluttered benchtops, try installing an elegant wooden keychain holder by your front door. 

You’ll create precious space for the beautiful things that bring you joy while keeping your essentials within easy reach.

Now, let’s consider simplicity.

In school, our teachers sowed the seeds of the KISS principle, or “Keep it Simple, Stupid!” It’s not the most amicable turn of phrase, but it certainly sticks on your head! Apply the same philosophy to your home organisation plans. By keeping your goals simple, you won’t feel stressed or overwhelmed by the pressure of revamping your space.

What about sustainability?

Well, this might be the most crucial point of all! By choosing timeless, high-quality storage solutions, you’ll enjoy a peaceful home for years to come. Revel in the extra time you have to enjoy time with friends, family, and that cheeky glass of wine after dinner! ;)

Handcraft the life you deserve

You deserve to live a long, happy, satisfying life. Home organisation is one of the first steps toward making it happen!

Start today. Take baby steps. If better sleep is your goal, try decluttering your bedside table. If you work from home, try beautifying your office space. Every change you make is a tremendous stride towards happier, healthier living!
