Start with a Clear Plan

Before you organize your belongings, sit down with your partner and discuss your goals and expectations. Define which areas of the house will be used for what purposes and what items you both want to keep. This will serve as your guiding framework throughout the process.

Declutter Together

Moving is an excellent opportunity to declutter your lives. Therefore, take the time to go through your belongings. From there, decide what to keep, donate, or discard. Involve your partner in this process, as it will help build trust and ensure you’re both on the same page about what stays and what goes.

Do You Organization gave an additional tip about sentimental items! For items that do not need to be displayed but have sentimental value, Do You suggests storing items in a watertight bin.

Allocate Space Equitably

Once you’ve decided on the items to keep, allocate storage space equitably. Divide closet space, shelf space, and drawers in a way that feels fair and balanced to both of you. Ensure that both partners have their own designated areas for personal items. Keep in mind that equitably does not necessarily mean equally! You can use more space than your partner in certain areas, as long as that works for both of you.

Invest in Organizational Tools

Investing in organizational tools like storage bins, baskets, and shelving units can make a world of difference. Use these tools to categorize and store items in a way that maximizes space and keeps your home tidy.

Label Everything

Labeling is a simple but effective technique for staying organized. Use labels on boxes, containers, and drawers to easily identify the contents. Therefore, locating items will be convenient for both you and your partner.

Merge Decor Styles

Be sure to merge your decor styles to create a cohesive living space. Discuss color schemes, furniture choices, and decor to ensure a harmonious look throughout your home. This will allow both of your personal design styles to shine through.

Establish “Yours,” “Mine,” and “Ours” Zones

Consider designating certain areas in your home as “yours,” “mine,” and “ours.” This way, both partners can have a space where they can display personal items and individualize their surroundings, while also enjoying shared spaces.

Be Patient

Organizing your belongings and merging households can be a time-consuming process. Be patient with each other and remember that this is a significant transition. It’s essential to keep lines of communication open and stay positive throughout the process.

Regular Maintenance

Remember that maintaining an organized home is an ongoing task. With that in mind, make it a habit to revisit your organization systems regularly. This will ensure that everything remains in its proper place and that clutter doesn’t accumulate.

Seek Professional Help if Needed

If you find that organizing your home becomes too challenging or creates tension in your relationship, don’t hesitate to seek professional help. A professional organizer can provide valuable advice and solutions to make the process smoother. If you find yourself in this situation, reach out to Do You Organization for your free consultation!
