Some people are born organizers…others of us struggle with the concept our whole lives…many of us fall someplace in-between the two. When it comes to keeping our homes organized, we often fall prey to the beautiful, matching organization systems at The Container Storeor local Target gracing shelves and weekly advertisements during January. As if failing at our other resolutions wasn’t enough, now we see how much we are failing at keeping our home organized, too!

Whether you’re moving into a new home, or preparing your home to sell, becoming organized might be at the top of your list, but if you’re not a natural-born organizer, the task you’re taking on might be daunting.

Rather than trying to implement all of the numerous ideas floating around the Internet or gathering dust in a folder you started last January, consider allowing your home organization to come more, well, naturally. That is, make it match organically how you live rather than changing how you live to match it.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

If your home is on the market, give each family member a storage bin with a lid…whenever the house is being shown (or before they leave for school each day) have the collect everything loose and put it in the bin and place it in their closet. Now your home will be ready in a snap.

If you want to begin the process of selling your home, contact your real estate professional for guidance.
