Running out of space in your home? No need to declutter- instead follow these 5 folding tricks to free up some room! Watch the VIDEO
Do you want to create more space in your home, but you don't want to give a bunch of stuff away? Or perhaps you've already done a big purge of your material items, and you love everything you have, but you don't have enough space to store it all. Instead of just continuing to get rid of stuff, you can learn how to organize it better. These simple life hacks from Hometalk teach us how to fold our items away better to make more space in our closets, cabinets and pantries. Of course, the best way to completely declutter your home is to go through all of your items and get rid of things you don't use on a regular basis or things that don't bring you joy. This can be a lengthy process, and shouldn't be done overnight, but you can slowly chip away at your items over time, and you'll see how much of a difference it makes. It really helps to ask yourself if you really love the item or if you're just keeping it for sentimental reasons or any out of obligation. This way, you're only surrounded by things you love instead of a bunch of clutter.
If you already love all of your items and you just need to make more space and organize the items you have, these simple life hacks from Hometalk will definitely help you create that. Organizing can really have a positive effect on the state of your home, and it can also help you feel less stressed and more relaxed. Even the way you fold your clothes can make a big difference in your closet and dresser drawers. As shown in the video on Hometalk, you can fold your t-shirts very easily and nicely to make some space in your drawer, and also, so that you can see everything really well, making it easy to cycle through your shirts and grab the one you want to wear. You can try out folding your shirts the way that they show you how and see if it makes any difference in your closet or dresser. Another item that is very important to have, but that can take up a lot of space if not stored correctly is your reusable shopping bags.
These can be very large when you need them to be, but they can also fold away nice and small too which is way better for your cabinets and closets. In the video, another one of the simple life hacks is showing us how to fold up our reusable bags in a way that allows many of them to be stored away together. All you do is you fold them a few times lengthwise, and then you fold the edges in toward the centre and then together to create a nice square. Then, you take the handle and wrap it around the folded bag to hold it all together. Just think of how many of these you can store away now. Another source of frustration for most people is their linen closet. All of the sheets and towels just end up getting folded and piled up oddly. But, again, if you fold them properly, they will all fit perfectly even in a small space. You can actually fold up your sheet sets and store them in a pillowcase belonging to that set making them nice and small and easy to find. These simple life hacks would be perfect for those living in smaller spaces, and they can totally make our lives easier.
