Get Your Home Organized for Spring and Summer

Keep your home neat for spring and summer with this trio of easy organization projects. The best part about these tasks is that they require very few tools. In fact, they can all can be done with little more than a good drill and some supplies.

Now, let’s get organized!

Create a Garden Planter

Keep your veggie gardening under control by building a simple raised garden bed or planter. Traditional gardens can be overwhelming for new gardeners, which can result in them becoming overgrown and unsightly.

By contrast, garden planters keep your growing efforts compact and easily accessible, especially if you choose a design that’s elevated on legs! The best part is that you don’t have to build your raised garden from scratch. There are several garden planter kits on the market that simply need to be assembled. So, grab your drill and get going!

Hang New Shelves

Is your home office desk overflowing? Do you have kids who collect this year’s hottest “blind bag” toys (we’re looking at your LOL Surprise)? Do you have a blank wall that’s just begging for a purpose? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to install some new shelving!

Hanging shelves is among the easiest of household tasks, and required no more than your drill, a level (do not skip this part), and your shelves plus hardware. It may seem like a small detail, but this addition can have a big impact on your home’s organization.

Give Your Closet a Makeover

Have you been eyeing the new spring fashions, but lamenting the lack of space in your closet? Make room for your spring style update by installing a closet organizer! You won’t believe how much more you can fit into even the smallest closet when it has been properly partitioned with an organizer.

Simply measure your closet and either contact a custom closet designer or visit your local home improvement store for something off the shelf. In most cases installation is easy, since most kits come with expandable rails.
