- Spring cleaning is easy with these five home organizers on hand
- Organize your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and beyond
Ah, spring cleaning. Is there anything more satisfying than checking this task off the list? It's a monster of a job — one that can take days — but in the end, you home is more orderly and clean, with everything in its own designated place.
The act of organizing your home can actually benefit your physical and mental health. In fact, a doctor blogging on Huffington Post says clearing the clutter can "boost health and vitality." The idea is that we are all products of our environment. So disorganization can have noticeable effects on our physical, mental and emotional health.
To help inspire your spring cleaning strategy, we rounded up five fan-favorite organizational items to keep at home. With these on hand, you'll have a spot for those pans that won't fit in the kitchen cabinet and be able access items from under the bed without making a total mess.
