MAX­I­MIZE YOUR SHELVES by mix­ing square and rec­tan­gu­lar bins with loose and ir­reg­u­lar-shaped items, op­po­site. Pro­fes­sional or­ga­nizer Jamie No­vak rec­om­mends wire or clear bas­kets so you can see what you have with­out need­ing to la­bel them.

RE­DUCE PACK­AG­ING when sort­ing bulk items in the closet, says pro­fes­sional or­ga­nizer Kate Martin. Sup­plies such as clothes­pins, cot­ton balls, and ban­dages will store per­fectly in glass con­tain­ers, be­low, so they’re easy to see and grab.

RO­TATE YOUR LINENS af­ter do­ing laun­dry by plac­ing clean tow­els, sheets, and blan­kets at the bot­tom of each cor­re­spond­ing pile. “This will pre­vent only a few linens from be­ing over­worn and en­sures that the bot­tom of the stack gets used,” No­vak says.
