How Getting Organized Can Cut Down on Chore Time

Saving time is one of the greatest benefits of getting organized.  Household chores particularly take up a lot of free time.  Here are some ways getting organized can cut down on chore time.

Doing Laundry

To save time doing laundry, put all dirty socks in a mesh lingerie wash bag before washing.  All socks will remain together and you will save time searching for socks during the folding process.

By having multiple laundry baskets sorted by lights and darks or by family member, it will be quicker to wash and put away laundry.

Organizing dressers and closets and creating a place for all clothing will make it much easier to put away clothes.

Organizing linen closets allows you to make beds, set out towels and put away linens faster.

Cooking & Meal Preparation

An organized pantry and fridge saves you time when searching for ingredients while cooking meals or packing lunches.

Grocery Shopping

An organized kitchen makes it simpler to make a grocery list, shop and unload groceries.

Washing Dishes

One way to save time unloading the dishwasher is to adjust the location of frequently washed items.  If you place the cups, glasses, plates, bowls and utensils that are used daily in the drawers and cabinets closest to your dishwasher, you will reduce the number of steps needed to unload the dishwasher, saving you time.

Cleaning Kitchens

Placing cleaning caddies under the sink or in a broom closet will help you to contain and find all cleaning supplies, saving you time.

Cleaning Bathrooms

Storing bathroom cleaning supplies in another organized cleaning caddy saves time searching for the right supplies.  Using trays on the bathroom counter can save time when you need to clear the counters for cleaning.

Picking up Toys

Setting up organized playrooms and with labeled containers and a home for each toy makes toy clean-up quicker and easier for children.

Car Washing

Having car washing supplies organized in your garage makes the car washing process run smoothly.

Doing Yard Work

Organized yard tools and garden tools allow you to promptly find what you need to get the yard work done quickly.
