January: Let’s Get Organized Month

January is my annual reset time, where holiday decorations are stored away and bedrooms get refreshed.

Organizing my drawers and closets are also high on the priority list.

This month sparks my inspiration to begin new and lay out my plans for the year ahead. It all begins with a tidy home; once that’s in order, everything else seems to fall into place more smoothly.

How To Get Organized In 2024

Let’s take a look at the best January organizing ideas that are simple and affordable!

1. Change Bedding

4. New Velvet Hangers

As crazy as this sounds, hangers can make a huge impact in. your closet. For me, half the battle with keeping our closets organized involve keeping the clothes “on the hangers.”

We recently transformed our closet and these amazing Slim Velvet Hangers are Non-Slip Clothes Hangers and have been a total life saver in keeping our closet organized!

The slim design has freed up so much space, making our wardrobe look neat and expansive. I absolutely love the velvet coating—no more clothes slipping off and creating a mess!

Plus, the sturdy metal core means they’re built to last. I got a light cream and a pink color for my clothes and black velvet for Jim’s. You’ve got to try them for that satisfying, well-kept closet feeling!

6. Refrigerator Organization

The refrigerator is always the deep dark hole in our house and honestly, it wasn’t until we started using clear plastic organizing bins and containers that it started to resemble some sort of tidyness.

January is the best time to clean out and organizing your refrigerator!

7. Laundry Room Organization

You can’t go wrong with January organizing ideas that start with your laundry room!

We are planning a small laundry room organization project in January and I will be purchasing just about everything from our previous homes small laundry room. Do you remember our laundry room closet and basement laundry room at our previous house? I LOVED these two makeovers!

Here is is our laundry room closet at our previous house:

You can find all of our laundry room organization items on our Amazon Storefront.

Our basement laundry room at our previous house:

This laundry room had a stackable and was also in a closet so we used wire shelving, a stainless steel rolling cart for additional storage and a peg board with hangers on the wall for scissors and handle cleaning accessories.

Our Current Laundry Room:

I just purchased this laundry hanging rack for our current laundry room and I think it’s going to be perfect as it folds up against the wall when not in use.

I am hoping to get Jim on board to help me make DIY wooden shelves (like we did here in our previous house) so we can remove the wire shelving we have. I’ll share pictures soon of our current laundry room!

January Bonus: Stanley Tumbler

Earlier this year, I started drinking more water. 64 ounces minimum a day is my goal and I’m finding that it not only is helping my skin feel better, it’s helping me not snack as much and keeping “bloat” to a minimum.

For me, getting inspired to be organized and having energy to complete tasks starts with my health. I haven’t focused on that in a few years and my body and brain are suffering because of it.

That’s a story for another day but let’s just say, menopause has completely wreaked havoc on my body and 2024 will be all about a healthier life style.

I plan on sharing my journey from this past year and what I have done to adjust to the uninvited guest in my life, called menopause.

This Stanley Quencher Tumbler H2.0 is stylish, stainless steel and perfect for all-day hydration.
