Happy Tuesday my loves!
I hope your week is going well. We’re 1 day away from hump day and 3 days away from the weekend. Whoop whoop lol
Before we get started I just wanted to welcome everyone. If you’re returning welcome back, if you’re new to 4mommyvibez I’m super excited to have you guys. As always if you like what you see like, share, and or comment. Don’t forget to follow for future content. Hugs
We’re close to finishing the organization series you guys! So I thought today’s topic should be all about what you should have in your organization kit.
Just like Dr’s have their kits, and mechanics have their tools. We organizers have our kits too. It wouldn’t be fair to leave you guys with all the information and not tell you what you need to finish the job.
Let’s get started:
Bag or Box: You’ll want something large enough to house your measuring tape, label maker, permanent marker, snacks, water, checklist, camera, etc.
Permanent Marker: You’ll want to have a permanent marker to label your boxes so you know where things are to go once you’ve taken them out of the space.
Label Maker: Pretty self explanatory. But you will want to have a label maker so that you can quickly label your storage boxes, and bins. Labels are super helpful when using containers that aren’t transparent.
Measuring Tape: Measuring tape is always good to have when deciding on the size of organization systems, drawers, bins, etc. that you’ll want to add to your space. I can’t tell you how many people buy the containers atorage systems and it is either too big or too small for the space!
Tape: To close up those boxes that are going to be donated and given away.
Post it notes: For things you may want to come back to. Tip: Use colors to distinguish the rooms/ categories the items belong to.
Camera: You want to have a camera (you could also use your phone) to take pictures of things that you’re going to get rid of so you can have them remembered. You also want to have a camera to take before and after photos of your space so you can think of how you’d like to redesign the space!
Water: We want to stay hydrated so that we can keep going. Having water on hand prevents you from needing to stop. Organizing can become overwhelming and tiring. But it’s so worth it.
Snacks: Same reason as having water. You want to be able to get energized quickly so that you can keep the pace to organizing your space. (Didn’t mean to rhyme, but hey. Lol)
Gloves: You’ll want to have gloves when working in spaces you know you haven’t touched in awhile. Especially if there is dust, and cob webs. Thank me later.
Trash bags: You’ll always want to have trash bags on hand to get rid of the junk and trash your space has acquired. Again, it’s all about keeping up the pace.
Hand Sanitizer: In case you have something super gross you come in contact with. I don’t have to tell you children and animals can find some pretty clever ways to hide their messes.
Cleaning supplies: You want to have cleaners, paper towels, dusters, micro fiber towels, etc. on hand to sanitize the space when you’ve finished decluttering. It’s always easier to work as you go so that you don’t have to keep revisiting the same spaces over and over again.
Checklist: You want to have your checklist ready so that you can mark off things you’ve completed. It helps you keep track of your time and to know what task you should complete next.
Tools: From my experience you never know when you’ll need to put something together or take something apart. So a universal screwdriver set and pliers are always a good thing to have on hand.
Batteries: For when you find that lost remote. Lol
Folders/ Binders: For when you go through the paper clutter it’s a great way to keep track of important paper work. Use different colors to separate important paper work by category.
Scissors: To cut the tape and whatever else that needs to be cut loose.
Music: Some of you can skip this step if you work best in silence. But music encourages a lot of people to stay motivated when completing tough tasks.
Notepad and pen: To keep track of measurements for the space. Note the things that have been set aside for donation (tax purposes). Things to be sold, and things that are to go to specific people.
Mini First Aid Kit: Accidents happen. It’s always better to be safe and prepared.
Anything else you think you may need, feel free to add it to this kit. This is my ultimate tool kit. Because once again less is more.
Side Note: I’m working on getting videos out to you guys because I have a lot of people asking me to show them how to do certain techniques etc. So look out for my post notifying you of the 4mommyvibez Youtube Channel launch!
Thank you for your patience, and thank you for your support. I love you guys.
Don’t forget to comment a name I can give my loyal followers.
Talk to you guys soon.
