Tip of the Week: Double Down on Floor Mats

To reduce the need for cleaning, buy a durable, outdoor welcome mat for outside the front door and a softer one for inside the home. The outdoor one will let you wipe off dirt before you step inside, and the indoor one will get the last bits. Clean both once a week with a good shake or the vacuum to remove dirt. For bigger messes, most mats can go into the wash and then air dry.

Tip of the Week: Add a Final Step to Every Project

Any project at home—whether on the computer, in the craft room, or elsewhere—must end with a quick tidying. Shut down your computer, straighten up your desk, put crafting supplies back. And that's even if you're planning to pick up the project again tomorrow. When everything is in its designated place, you'll be even more excited to dive back in.

Tip of the Week: Make Small Daily Efforts to Organize

Remind everyone in the family that disorganization, even in the bathroom, can start a chain reaction. They're slowing down the next person by not putting things back where they belong. Sure, sometimes life gets crazy and you might need to leave the house in a hurry without putting away your toothbrush and paste, but that's OK. Because when you've already created homes for everything to live, it makes cleanup at a later time a cinch.

Tip of the Week: Kitchen Cleanup

Treat your kitchen as a chef would.
When you get to the end of a recipe, don't stop when the cooking is done - take time to put away your ingredients, wash pots, and wipe down the surfaces. Even just cleaning your prep space and items while the main dish is in the oven is an easy way to keep your kitchen sanity.

Tip of the Week: Distribute your grocery haul.

It can be tempting to quickly shove groceries into the nearest cabinet once you get home from shopping and move on with life. But take care to put items in their designated places. That way, the next time you need to find the rice, you won't have to call a search party or run out to buy an unnecessary extra bag

Tip of the week: Boots storage

During the winter is the perfect time to take control of your boots. Review each pair to ensure they fit properly and still look great with your wardrobe. Next, think about the best place to store them for ease of use. Is it in your bedroom closet, the closet by the front door, or in the garage? Finally decide what type of shoe stand or holder you'd like to invest in. Pictured here is a boot rack from Amazon, but many times we simply buy "pool noodles" for $1.00 that will work on 2-3 pairs of boots to keep them standing up straight. Affordable Organization LLC is all about saving a dollar while still having function and beauty. Nobody will know that a pool noodle is holding up your precious leather boots, give it a try.
