Home improvement: Here is how to get organized around the house

Take a quick look around your house and tell yourself what you see.
Perhaps you're a neat freak of sorts and your house is the epitome of organization. You have everything in a certain place, nothing out of place of course, and if someone asked you to find where you put your birthday cards when you were 13 years old, you could walk over and flip open a drawer or lid and find them with little or not issue whatsoever.
For the rest of us, as we peer around the room and take stock of how we're living in term of our organizational habits, the situation leaves a lot to be desired.
It isn't so much the idea of being messy but rather tossing things in drawers that have little or no rhyme or reason to them. Every kitchen has the proverbial "junk" drawer with its fair share of scissors, batteries, and sewing kits to last a lifetime, but what about the rest of the house. From the kitchen to your closet, you desperately need to get organized but have no idea where to start or how to get it the way that would make life superbly easier than it is now.
The first inclination is to run out and spend a lot of money on storage units and other items that are made specifically expensive for those who just need someone to say, here are some cubes now fill them.

In actuality, those items work splendidly but often getting organized comes on a budget that we just need to stick to and can't necessarily afford that walk in closet from Lowest for a few hundred dollars on a whim.
Instead, think about recycling items or buying products that are on the cheap that work well for the unintended purpose. Some real creative minds make it a point to use milk crates for storing clothes or garage items, along with maximizing their space by purchasing inexpensive storage that hands from the ceiling in the garage or shed that leaves the floor space wide open and other items you don't always need tucked away neatly and nicely.
One of the bigger culprits is the kitchen and you mostly can point at the pots and pans and tupperware as the main event of being disorganized. Rather than throw those things in haphazardly, consider using book ends that have built in slots, like an CD holder, to organize the tupperware lids or store your pots and pants separately from each other.
No matter how you slice up your storage needs, you can't argue that a clean, neat and organized house tends to function better, so adding a little regimen to your routine via fixing up those disorganized spots might mean more than just tidiness.
