5 Steps to Get Organized This New Years

January 16, 2017

Getting organized is the best way to start the New Year. A clean, clutter-free home can make you feel refreshed and ready to tackle any task headed your way. Use these tips from National Hardware to get organized this weekend

1. MAKE A PLAN. Start by planning out which room is the hardest to organize and tackle that first. That way you won’t be totally exhausted after cleaning and organizing 4+ rooms.

Make a Plan


2. SET GOALS. Then set a goal for each weekday or weekend to accomplish one or two rooms a day and post it on your fridge and cross off as you finish. This will keep you on track and make you feel accomplished.

Set Goals


3. DIVIDE AND CONQUER. Inform your family or members of your household of this plan to organize and assign a task or even goal to each member. Offer a fun, treat or reward for accomplishing their task. For example, if the goal(s) are met by 5pm this Sunday, the family will be treated to movie night or dinner.

Divide and Conquer


4. MAKE IT FUN. Instead of stressing out from all the clutter you have, find ways to make de-cluttering fun. Use a timer to race your family on who can throw out the most expired items in the pantry or match like items together (i.e. socks, cans, utensils).

Make it Fun

Back to School Pegboard Wall

January 16, 2017

We recently partnerd with Jessica from Four Generations One Roof to highlight how a Pegboard Wall can help organize any room in your home, from the garage to the office. Read below to see how she transformed her kids’ art space into an organized craft corner!

I have wanted to create a pegboard organization wall forever and I finally did it. The kids will be back to school in a few short weeks so I decided to create a peg board full of school supplies. Homework is kind of a drag in our house and it’s even worse when necessary supplies are missing. As hard as I try, I never seem to master keeping school stuff organized. I am hoping that having this new peg board full of supplies will help. We partnered with National Hardware for all the peg board hanging tools, accessories and adorable plastic containers.
