Spring cleaning: organization tips.

Hallo meine Lieben,

happy Thursday! I am taking part in the Random Thursday link-up like every week. You can join here.



So, we are talking about organization tips this week. I am sure there are people who are much more organized than I am but I will try to provide some tips that work fine for me.



1.Receipts, letters, bills etc.

I tend to keep all kinds of bills and receipts and manuals and letters and what not because I think that you never know when you will need them again. So there are lots of papers flying around sometimes. Which can be annoying.
So the first step is that I put all the stuff which I think I still need in one of these boxes.



When I think that there is too much crap in the box I sort through that stuff and recycle everything that I don't need anymore. 
And the rest of that stuff comes in a folder which is sorted alphabetically so that I can find the stuff easily.
This is definitely not the best idea to handle papers but it works for me.

2. Jewelry

I always had my jewelry in boxes which was a huge mess because I always had to search forever for the piece I wanted to wear. Then I decided to get something like this:


And since then I don't have to search for my jewelry anymore.

3. Shoes.

I own lots of shoes and I never knew how to organize them. This little thing here was a big help:


The only downside is that it does not work for boots. But it is great to organize sneakers, ballerinas etc. 

What are your organization tips?
Have a lovely Thursday!

  1. I'm loving that idea for shoes! Shoes are so hard to organize because they are always falling off shoe stands/organizers! But this one looks like an ideal solution!

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean. I should organize the stuff more often too!

  9. The thing that has worked best for me (although i fell off the wagon recently) was just to spend 15 minutes every day cleaning. it meant that I cleaned things that I normally don't (like dusting), but it is only for small increments - so it seems pretty doable.

    1. That's a good idea! It is so much better to do a little bit each day than spending hours cleaning at the weekend! I need to try that too!

  13. I do the exact same thing with receipts and letters and stuff. It would be so much easier to put them in a folder right away but I collec them first ;)
    Love that jewelry thing!
    I don't feel very organized at the moment - I feel like I rather need some advice in getting everything done in 24 hours, my ways don't work best...but they work somehow :)
    Ich drücke Dich noch Mal ganz fest, liebste Katrin.

    1. Haha, so cool that you do the same thing! And you are right, it would be a lot easier to just put them in a folder right away!
      I don't feel organized either! But I hope you get everything done! I am thinking of you!
      Ich drück Dich ganz dolle!

  14. that jewelry idea is genius!!
    ad I would kill for the shoe thing. I love how tall and skinny it is so it wouldn't take up that much space.
