Tidy Tips For Home Organisation

It’s not always easy to consider exactly how to upgrade your home. Maybe that new smart home fixture would do the job, or knocking a wall through. It might be that switching up bedrooms, installing new windows, and changing the entire colour scheme could help. It might be that purchasing new sofas, new tables, new ovens and refrigerators might solve the issues you’ve believe yourself to be facing.

Alternatively, it could just be that your home needs tidying. Everyone has different perceptions around what constitutes ‘tidy,’ but these opinions mean little compared to what is tidy in reality. A tidy home is clean, hygienic, and polished. It means everything has a place and there is a place for everything. Ideally, it means that similar items are situated in similar areas, and that there’s a decent cohesive philosophy behind where you store things.

The following tips can also give you a great and easy time keeping on top of your home organization and tidiness:

What To Pack In Your Hospital Bag

What to pack in your hospital bag
I'm now over 38 weeks pregnant and just popping the last few items into my hospital bag. I swear I was far more organised with my first pregnancy. I guess I didn't also have the distraction of a toddler to look after last time. I'm not sure when the best time is to pack your bag. For some, packing it as early as 30 weeks is important, but others could pack it as late as 40 weeks and still have a couple of weeks before the baby comes. Do what feels right to you, but probably somewhere around 35 - 36 weeks is a good time for most.

There are so many recommendations online for what to include that it can be quite overwhelming knowing what to actually pack. There are some things that are absolute essentials, but you don't want to go overboard and take too much. I feel like I've packed far better this time around and I'm not taking quite so much with me.

However you want to make sure you have enough just in case you need to stay in after your baby is born. You can always have a second back packed that you either leave in the car or at home in case of a stay. That way you're not expecting your other half to go searching for the things you need.
