How to Get Organized - The 4 Best Sites to Get Started with Home Organization

In this report

Any time of year is a good time to think about home organization. You don’t have to limit yourself to Spring Cleaning, New Years or the Holiday Season. The reason most people hold off on organizing their homes is that it’s difficult to get started. However, it doesn’t need to be difficult.

There are many sites that give you home organizing ideas. To get started you can use any number of different plans, however there are a few things that you’ll need to do regardless of the plan you use.

  1. Decide what you want to keep.
  2. Decide what you want to give away.
  3. Decide what you want to throw out.

The problem most people have is in what to keep. If you keep things, you’re going to need somewhere to put them. The following three online stores have a large assortment of items that can help you get your home organized. They also have what you need to keep your home neat and make sure it doesn’t return to a cluttered state.

That’s why before you start shopping on any of these organizing and storage sites, make a list of what you need to store. That way when you go on the site you know what you’re looking for.

#1 - GetOrganized   http://www.shopgetorganized.com

Get Organized is an online store that sells storage and organization solutions. They ship orders within 36 hours to ensure fast delivery, so you’ll be able to start organizing quickly.

Get Organized offers:

This site also sells a number or other items including As Seen on TV products, which can be tempting for some people and add to the amount of clutter in your home.  This site has less items than the other sites, however their prices tend to be lower, especially if you check out their clearance section where there are many items under $5.00, although all of these are not for organizing.

#2 - Stacks and Stacks   http://www.stacksandstacks.com

Stacks and Stacks is a homeware store with over 40,000 items. They offer a large selection of organizing and storage items to help you get started in organizing your home.

Stacks and Stacks offers:

Just as with Get Organized there are many things on this site to distract you. Also you may find the sheer number of choices overwhelming. This is a site where it is best to know what you’re looking for before shopping. This shop does offer the largest choice of larger organizing items, especially furnishings such as bookcases and cabinets.

#3 - The Container Store   http://www.thecontainerstore.com

The Container Store is the original storage and organization store. Their online store is dedicated to the items you need to organize your life and your home.

The Container Store offers:

While the Container Store probably has the largest amount of organizing supplies, it does not have many of the furniture pieces that Stacks and Stacks has. It also cannot match the other sites as far as shipping prices is concerned. Shipping with the Container Store starts at $8.50. The Container Store is a great place to see what's availabe for organizing your home.

After you get your organizing supplies, you’ll be ready to get started with your home organization plan. This last site will help with the things you don’t want to keep. The things you want to throw out.

For many people the things they need to get rid of won’t fit in a standard trash can. The task of disposing of large items can make organizing a little more difficult, especially if you can’t move the item yourself. Also, many people don’t want to get rid of things because they don’t want to throw it out. After all it may be useful to someone else.

While you want to keep all of your options open, remember to think about your available space.You may need to discard many things. Take the time to decide what's important to you. This can be difficult since you may want to keep everything. However, it's important to get rid of some things before you organize what's left.

By doing that you'll feel better about the things you give away and the things you throw out. In the end, having an organized house is what will give you peace, not the items you've collected over the years.
