Celebrity homes are filled with far more knickknacks and, well, stuff, than you could ever squeeze into your apartment—so if your favorite star can manage to declutter, you can too! Check out these super helpful organization tips from knowledgeable celebs:
Arguably the queen of all things organization, Martha Stewart is filled with ideas to help you declutter your home. Stewart is all business when it comes to organizing the home, and recommends that you do what you can to maximize efficiency.
For example, a hanging pot organizer can be a great space saver in the kitchen, while storing pots and pans near the oven can be a time-saver when cooking. As for the bathroom, try grouping similar items together (for example, put all your cosmetics on the same shelf in the medicine cabinet).
Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon may be best known for her roles in films like “Walk the Line” and “Legally Blonde,” but this Southern belle also knows how to organize a home.
If you’re lucky enough to have a dining room in your apartment, try Witherspoon’s trick of placing a dresser in the room. A chest of drawers can be used to store linens, large serving platters and candlesticks, all of which you’ll need when you throw your first dinner party of the season.
Organizer to the stars Justin Klosky has used some deft organizational tricks in celebrity homes over the years. According to Klosky’s mantra, if your apartment is cluttered, it will begin to affect your emotional well-being.
Avoid this issue by taking the important step of clearing out your closet (spring is the perfect time to do it!). Donate or throw away any items that you haven’t worn all season, and only bother keeping things that you know you’ll wear time and again.
Actress Keri Russell saves space in her kitchen by hanging organizational helpers below her cabinets. For example, instead of purchasing an upright paper towel dispenser, secure one to the bottom of your kitchen cupboards.
You can also save counter space by attaching wire baskets to the underside of your cabinets. Place items you use every day, like tea towels and spices, inside. This will keep your kitchen organized and help make your cooking experience more efficient!
