Organise Your Home and Start the New Year Right


Have you started to think of your New Year’s resolutions yet? Whether you want to give up smoking, improve your fitness levels, or spend less time in the office, you’ll find it easier to achieve resolution success if you’re living in a space that is organised and clutter-free. Now is the perfect time to start this project, so that you can start 2022 in style. Here’s everything you need to know:

Involve the Whole Family

If you live with young children, then you’ll know that their mess spreads everywhere! Involve them in the organising process by giving them each a box to store their favourite possessions in. We recommend Really Useful Storage boxes, which come in a variety of sizes, can be kept indoors or outdoors, and are sturdy and translucent. This is important, because it means children can quickly and easily see what’s inside without pouring the box on the floor every time they want to play with something! These boxes are also handy for storing occasional use items, or outgrown items, in your garage or other storage area, removing them from your living space. 

Sort Out Your Home Office

With many of us spending much of 2021 working from home, we have more office clutter in our personal environments than every before. Organising and decluttering that stack of paperwork won’t just make your house look tidier, it will also be good for your mental health. Studies suggest that maintaining a distinct separation between your work and home life will make you happier and less stressed. Luckily, with the right stationery supplier, organising your home office space is easier than ever before. First, take the time to decide which items you do and don’t need: shred any confidential items, and dispose of them in an environmentally-friendly way. Next, find the right office storage solution for your remaining items: we recommend the Bankers Box by Fellowes magazine files, which are compact, can be stored on or under a desk or workspace, and are surprisingly spacious. 

A Place for Everything

Finally, it’s so much easier to keep your home clean and decluttered when everything in your home has a place it’s supposed to be. If there’s a special sock box in every wardrobe, for example, your kids are less likely to leave them wherever they want to. Laundry baskets in bedrooms will stop dirty laundry from landing on the floor. Think about what additional storage solutions your home needs, and invest in these now. You should also invest in a waste paper basket in every room, so there’s never an excuse not to throw that rubbish away. 

When it comes to finding all the pieces that you need Office Stationery is a great place to start: offering a one stop shop for both storage solutions and office supplies, you only need to place one order and you’ll have your home tidied, decluttered, and ready to start the New Year in style.
