Keeping Things Organized

Your apartment is your home, the place you come back to at the end of the day. It should be a stress-free environment. One way to help keep your home stress-free, or less stressful is by keeping it organized. In this week’s One East Tucson Blog, we’ve got some tips for how to keep your Tucson, AZ apartment organized!

Clean your Home

Cleaning your apartment is the best place to start with keeping it organized. As you’re clearing the dust, vacuuming your floors, and making your bed, you can evaluate how neat or messy your home is. As your home gets cleaner, you’re more likely to want to keep it organized and well-kept.

Multi-Purpose Organizers

Our apartments have a lot of space, but perhaps not quite as much as a three-story home, so it’s important to have storage and organizers that double as other things to save space. Invest in ottomans or vertical storage to give your apartment more room, this way, you can hide any bulky or unsightly items in your home. Ottomans double as a seat for guests and can store comfort items like pillows and blankets.   


In our busy lives, it’s normal to have things scattered around. Bills, junk mail, and other loose-leaf papers pile up quickly if you don’t stay on top of discarding them. Take the time to go through your apartment and pinpoint things you don’t need or want and put them aside to be thrown away or donated. You may be surprised how much clutter you have in your home. Take stock of what you’re hanging on to that you don’t really need. Generally, if you haven’t used items in a year(except perhaps seasonal things), you’re probably not going to use them again. You may have functioning items you wish to remove from your home, so consider donating them to thrift stores or homeless shelters so they can be repurposed!
