- Don’t Let Your Dining Table Turn into a Mail Table
- Use Storage Bins for Clothing
- Get Rid of Anything You Will Not Be Using
One of the easiest ways to lose the little space you have is to let your dining table turn into a place to leave mail, keys, and other miscellaneous things you may not know where to place. If this has happened to you, don’t just clear the table of – find place to put what’s on it. If it’s covered in mail, buy a mail organizer. If it’s keys that keep cluttering the table, buy key hooks. The idea is that simply removing the items won’t help if you end up putting it all back – find a permanent solution to prevent the issue from happening again.
If the issue with your dining area is that it’s the place everyone puts their coats, shoes, hats, etc., when coming in the door, create storage bins near the door that are perfect for this purpose. Label them so that everyone in the household knows where to put each item. Create a reward system to help encourage everyone to get used to the bins and to use them.
If your dining area has become a place to store items you are not using, consider getting rid of the clutter. Do you need all those knickknacks? Are you letting space go wasted simply to show off something that you don’t love anymore? Do you have fancy china that you do not use taking up shelf space?
Think about your dining room like this: Are you going to use the items in it in the next six months? If you do not anticipate doing so, then it is time to find another place for it.
