6 Easy Ways to Organize Your Spaces for the New Year
Let’s be honest, getting organized is one of the most common items on our list of New Year’s resolutions. However, some of us forget or eventually let it go mid-year. If you want to make a change this year, SM Stationery is here to help you follow through with your New Year’s organizing goals with these easy tips and tricks!
1. Set small but doable goals.
To increase your chances of successfully organizing your clutter, it is important to set goals that are both attainable and challenging. Make a plan that works for you and stick to it for the entire year.
Start by assessing your spaces, whether it’s your bedroom, home office, or study area. Choose several easy tasks that you can do in a day, like organizing your desk, decluttering your closet and more.
2. Create a filing system.
Once you’ve set your goals, it’s time to make a filing system that works for you. Take control of your clutter by categorizing each item by importance, color, or size. You have to remember that every item should belong to a specific category.
3. Start to declutter.
The benefit of decluttering your home is not just about throwing things you don’t need away. It's about making room for items you want to keep and being able to find them when you need them.
One of the popular ways to declutter is using the KonMari Method. It recommends organizing by category rather than location, starting with clothing and working your way through books, documents, miscellaneous items, and sentimental stuff. Don’t forget to keep only the things that spark joy in your heart!
4. Maximize your spaces.
Now that you’ve categorized and decluttered your items, you can now move on to storage solutions. Professional organizers recommend investing in storage boxes and filing organizers. Keep like-minded items together in one storage unit.
To clear out your drawers and shelves, you can keep documents, magazines, catalogs, and stationery supplies in space-saving file organizer boxes. When not in use, these boxes can be flattened and stored easily.

Having multipurpose plastic storage boxes on hand will prevent you from ever running out of space.

If you need dust-proof organizers for clothes or snacks in your bedroom, storage boxes with lids are your best friend for staying organized and neat.

5. Label your boxes.
Labeling each compartment and storage box organizer will help you keep track of your spaces. Get yourself a label maker or get creative with a DIY label using sticker papers and marker pens. Make sure that the labels are visible.
6. Decorate your work desk to a minimum.
Include your work or study station in your New Year’s organization goals. While it’s easy to decorate, remember to keep things to a minimum. Consider using multi-purpose computer accessories that can double as storage.
For example, if you want to declutter your desk while making your study or work gadgets in an ergonomic position, look for a desktop computer organizer and stand equipped with tiered storage.
Another computer accessory you might want to keep on your desk is a wooden monitor riser, which saves space for more productive work. Desk organizers also include adjustable phone stands and laptop stands with cooling fans. Lucky for you, our select computer accessories are 20% OFF until January 31!
