Organizing Series: What you need in your organization kit

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:

44C9DA24-58A5-4716-B423-4416551D4A41

Bag or Box: You’ll want something large enough to house your measuring tape, label maker, permanent marker, snacks, water, checklist, camera, etc.

81E100C8-3B22-4D9D-B330-2F16203B7CC2

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.

6E33E7E1-2FAE-434C-9ABF-F87D90B61621

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.

BEDF4455-A065-46AA-91E7-E3CE555785C5

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!

BA5BBA97-7A3D-49EF-A236-C1E5978987F4Tape: To close up those boxes that are going to be donated and given away.

B71CFC70-3C2D-428D-A561-C7DE243D8A85Post it notes: For things you may want to come back to. Tip: Use colors to distinguish the rooms/ categories the items belong to.

B0B4852D-7960-44E2-8DFC-33E81188B33E

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!

127AF8FA-E22D-4370-ADC1-5E8E4BCAF666

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.

1C688DBA-18CD-4CA6-AFDE-E589A513DB30

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)

65E45F90-4206-4012-9F04-ACCAB2BAF759

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.

41CA654C-F539-4EFE-A528-B902EB195293

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.

69758177-77B3-49AC-96BE-7887530F75DA

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.

7AAB76DB-7284-4541-822E-5DC28140F23E

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.

D06A3312-66CC-4619-BA4B-62946DB64EEC

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.

A7331182-8654-4021-AC52-8FB3F0A5EC64.jpeg

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.

0A97F18A-A91F-4973-9652-45AE8204AC32.jpeg

Batteries: For when you find that lost remote. Lol

8AE8D5DC-F268-4CA5-B329-6A16A36C279AFolders/ 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.

EE5BF8AC-8DCB-49FB-8C29-88F382B204CF

Scissors: To cut the tape and whatever else that needs to be cut loose.

15430574-AACE-4923-82EF-3725EED1A2F9

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.

7973DC02-91FF-49A2-AD26-DD536A9A0BE9

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.

A09BFB07-A575-4F52-9EC1-F3DE2FC7FBE9

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.

Ashley
