If you're obsessed with filing, binders and lists - you're in good company!
"Professional Organiser" and the woman with the "most organised home in America" has let you sneak a peek at how she keeps her life and home in-check.
Alejandra Costello lives to organise, and has made a name for herself through online organisation videos and programs to help those in-need of a little bit of order.
In one of her more recent clips she invited us into her home, where a life of tupperware, storage racks and labels was put on full display.
Here are seven key takeaways to incorporate into your home:
1. Lazy Susans
Use them wherever you can! Alejandra has them in her pantry and cupboards to make life easier. They're a great way to access all that stuff at the back of your pantry that you don't even know is there anymore. Genius!
2. Metal Sheets
Why? Because they're magnetic! Alejandra has metal sheets on the insides of her kitchen cabinet doors, to display photos and notices that most people would stick to their fridge. This way, they're out of sight until you open the cupboard door.
3. Peg Board
This wonder material is adored by the organisation pros. It can be used to hang everything, from tools, to accessories, to craft supplies. Alejandra uses it to hold ribbons. So satisfying.
4. Organise clothes by "type"
Some organise clothes by colour. Others by season. However, apparently we should all be organising by "type". This means long sleeved shirts go together, with little tops in another section, pants in another, and skirts in another. Having all the same hangers helps too. Alejandra also uses labelled dividers... but we guess you don't need them.
5. Door pockets
Door pockets are commonly used as shoe holders. However, these door hangings can be used to store all kinds of things. Alejandra likes to keep one in her bathroom to hold hair ties, make-up and everything that usually gets lost in your cabinet.
6. More Pockets!
This time they are hidden pockets in your shower! If you don't have shelving in your shower, and your stuff ends up just hanging around the floor - invest in one of these!
7. Battery Kits
Using tackle boxes to organise your bits and bobs - from earrings to screws and nails - is not uncommon. However, this batter kit is a bit more revolutionary. If you have spare batteries laying around, bring them all together in this neat little pack.
