Hygge is home for Vanessa. If you're wondering how she likes to keep her house, think tidy and uncluttered. She even has a personal Pinterest board featuring only white colored homes, appealing to her minimal design aesthetic.

A well-organized home is always a worthy aspiration, one that leads to better sleep, less stress and less time spent looking for lost items. With so many storage items on the market, it’s easy to fall into a spiral of buying container after container until you realize you don’t have enough space for them after all. Fact is, you just need to make a few simple changes. If you’ve been dreaming of a cleaner, more organized home this year, check out these space-saving tricks you can easily do at home.

Fold Upright Where You Can See it

That’s right. Organizing consultant Marie Kondo teaches us an easy folding technique that works for all clothes and linens.

According to Marie Kondo, folding your clothes in small rectangles and storing them in an upright position means you can easily find them in your drawers. That means no more flipping one shirt on top of another just to find what you’re looking for. Aside from looking neat and tidy, it saves you plenty of space in drawers and closets because your clothes are nicely arranged in similar sizes. I suggest applying the same principle in your closet too. Make sure to keep your most worn or used clothes and linens in your line of sight so you can easily reach for them come Monday morning.

Label Your Containers, Boxes and Storage

It’s fun to transfer items to uniform boxes and containers, until you have to look for them.

Label each container with the items inside to save you hours opening each of them just to discover what lies underneath. I love the idea of using printable stickers because you can customize the design. Labeled containers come in handy for storing in spaces like the garage, the pantry or even the basement.

Make Use of Mesh Grids

Turn that hardware store find into an organization essential.

A wire mesh grid is a powerful tool for keeping kitchens and home offices organized. Place one above your sink or your workspace and customize the grid by hanging your kitchenware essentials, or in the case of a home office, important notes and unread mail. Think of it as a vertical flatlay.

Hang It by the Hook

S-hooks were made for the kitchen, but there are plenty of other uses for them in the house.

The great thing about S-hooks is that they remove the hassle of having to install individual hooks to your walls. You can add as many as you need in the kitchen, whether for pots, kitchen towels or planters. But they’re amazing for the bathroom too. Aside from hanging towels, you can hook on baskets, tissue boxes and small plastic holders to maximize wall space. No need to push everything in the cupboard under the sink, hang them instead.
