Organize your home with Yocopia

The holidays are done and now it’s time to look at ourselves and our homes. The top new years resolutions are to lose weight, get healthy and get organized. We are already a week into the new year and it’s time to start working on that organization resolution! I have some amazing products to help you do just that.

I received a few products from Yocpia to review for you all. I’m really very happy with what I have received. I have been able to organize my home with ease and really make myself feel like I have control over something this new year.

The first item I was excited to try out was the spice steps. It’s a simple step up product that allows you to see more of your spices in your cupboard. I was excited because I am currently living with my brother and our spices were all over the place. This helped us because we could put the spices we use the most up front and the ones that we don’t use as much in the back, but we could still see them, making not only cooking easier, but grocery shopping as well.

The next item I received was a lid holder for your pots and pans. I have needed this in my life for a long time and I may buy another one when I get my own place so that my brother can keep this one. It’s amazing and really helps keep my pots and pans organized. I’m someone who can’t seem to ever stack the pots and pans with lids on them, one I don’t have a cupboard that is big enough to do that and two I’m lazy when I get home and don’t want to take the time to do that. The lid holder makes it so easy to store your lids and really who uses the lid every time they cook anyway!

The last item I received is really very cool it’s a Drawer StoraStack and it helps keep your food containers organized, now I will say there is a downside to this one as my drawers are not big enough to put it in, but I have it sitting in my cupboard and it works well. It’s great for those that have gone out and bought container sets that fit into each other, if you randomly buy them though, this may not work as well for you, though I will say it’s great to hold lids for all those random pieces.

I hope you take a look at what else Yocopia has to offer. They have such great products and great prices that I really don’t see why you wouldn’t look at them, All of the pieces I received were of amazing quality. They were not flimsy, but very sturdy and I have yet to feel like they would break if I dropped them or put something in wrong. I have had all of these products for a few weeks and really have enjoyed using them and seeing how much they have helped me organize.

Five Quick Tips For New Year Organization

Tips for new year organization

It’s the new year and now is the time to get into your home and organize it. You know it’s been crazy over the holidays and you were not worried about how things went as long as your home looked clean and ready for guest, now though as you enjoy the day after Christmas you may realize you need a bit of help in getting your home back to normal. Below I have a few tips to help quickly organize your home for the new year.

My Five Quick Tips for New Year Organization

1. Get your Holiday decorations in order

There are many ways to store your holiday décor, but many people don’t know how to do it. It’s actually very easy and can be cheap. My tip here is to hit up the dollar store for storage and bubble wrap. You can also order great storage for your decorations on Amazon.com

2. Do one room at a time.

You are not going to be able to organize your home over the weekend. It’s going to take time and there is going to be a bit of a mess for a while.

Plan:

  • Get a piece of paper and create 2 columns.
  • Write down each room in your home, put the smaller rooms in one column and the bigger rooms in the next.
  • In the smaller room column circle every 2-3 rooms, each circle represents one week of time spent on those rooms.
  • The bigger room column should be one room each week. If you have an overly large kitchen then add another week.

Yes this is going to take a month or two, but you will appreciate the outcome when you are done.

3. Get rid of non-used clothing

  • I’m sure you have heard this tip before, but it’s easier said then done. Here is how I do it every year.
  • Go though all of your clothing, throw out or donate anything you hate, anything that is too big (exceptions are big sweaters but only one or two!) or too small.
  • Once that is done, do the hanger trick, place all of your hangers the opposite way you normally do. Then as you wear the clothing put the hangers the other way. In 6 months see what clothing you have worn and what you have not. Donate what you have not. (again, exceptions are formal wear and other special occasion things)
    4. Have your kids help with their rooms
    Many people think that mom or dad have to do all the organizing in the kids rooms, but if your children are old enough have them help. Let them pick out the storage and ask them questions about how they want their rooms to look. When a child has an input in what is going on they are more likely to take pride in their space and keep it looking good.
    5. Don’t Stress

Organizing takes time, but when you take the time to do it, the next time is so much easier. Lets start 2017 the right way and get things done. Don’t stress about the mess. Just go into another room, have a cup of tea or a glass of wine and think about how nice it will be when it’s all done. It will get done!
