Zoned in for Organization

Get in the Zone.

What does that mean exactly in regards to clutter and organization?

It means that you should have zones based on usage.

Organizing and Planning Locations

Items you use regularly should be in an area that is easy for you to reach. Your zones.

When you are ready to organize a room or space you will find it is very helpful if you first, sit down and make a list of the items you use most in this space.

Those items you use most often need to be within easy reach. Other items that you use less often can be stored closer to the floor or in high cabinets.

This is a very important tip in areas like the kitchen.

In my house coffee is very important in the morning. The last thing I want to do is hunt for anything related my coffee. We have a coffee zone. Everything related to making and drinking coffee is in one space. At my fingertips when I am not yet awake. That is a good thing.

Maybe you are a baker. If so, you need a baking zone. Gather all your baking ingredients in one spot with your mixing bowls, mixers and cookbooks in a zone will save you steps and time. Not to mention frustration.

If you have little ones you might need a snack zone. It might be a basket with approved snacks that you place in you can easily reach and quickly give one to your little one. I don’t know a Mom who wouldn’t appreciate a fast way to pacify a cranky toddler. (That could be how my husband feels about me and with coffee in the morning.)

Think about what you use where when planning your space.

He who fails to plan is planning to fail” Winston Churchill

By putting things in the zone, you make a space that fits your needs and makes it easier for you to put things away as you use them.

  1. Love the “zone” idea! I have a similar coffee zone here at my house and I love it. Also love your baking zone! I’m a big time baker so have an area like that would definitely come in handy. Great post 🙂

  2. Love your post. I am very very unorganized by nature but somehow i naturally have created zones without realizing it. I am a new baker and whatever stuff i need for baking is all dumped into one big basket which stays in one of the cabinets. It helps me get everything i need and does not involve too much organizing afterward. But anyways thats just one of things in control.. rest is all messed up….and reading your post makes me feel good about myself a bit. Thanks
