Top Home Organizing Blogs of the Web
My fellow bloggers on the web are constantly inspiring me to make my home an even more beautiful environment. They’re always teaching me so many great new tips on how to make everything a bit more functional and a whole lot more organized.
So today, I’m sharing some love to eight of the top home organization blogs that I turn to each week. These ladies continually impress me with their innovative organizing ideas and beautiful housekeeping.
There’s a good reason that this is one of the most popular homekeeping sites on the web! On her beautifully designed blog, author Toni Hammersley gives detailed insight into her personal strategies for all aspects of keeping one’s house running smoothly: organizing, cleaning, and budgeting!
With an easy writing style and a color scheme that fits with the theme of my life, this is easily one of my favorite organization blogs to turn to on a regular basis. My favorite article lately was: “My Summer Office”
Minimalism can be defined in many different ways, and while I’m certainly not a minimalist myself, at least not in the strictest sense of the word, I really appreciate learning from those who are. The basic idea of “own only what is actually necessary and actually ads value to your life” is perfectly in line with the vision of SORTED, where we strive to free ourselves from clutter so that we can focus on what truly matters in life.
The Becoming Minimalist blog is a great resource for learning more about the art of minimalism and how it can be applied to your life in many practical ways. Check out their “Most Popular Posts” page for an overview of what the site has to offer.
“Reality-based cleaning and organizing” pretty much sums up this enjoyable, often humorous blog by author Dana White. Dana connects with those of us who WANT to be clean, but don’t necessarily find that it comes naturally. She writes:
“At A Slob Comes Clean, I share reality-based cleaning and organizing tips, based on my reality! As I get my home under control through my own de-slobification process, I tell the truth about which methods work in real life for real people who don’t necessarily love cleaning and organizing.”—Dana White, A Slob Comes Clean
Describing this blog in one word, I’d say: “Fresh.” Which is exactly what you might hope, for a cleaning blog! Author Becky Rapinchuk does a beautiful job of teaching her readers how to simplify their homes to make things stay cleaner and run more smoothly. I love her emphasis on routines!
The Clean Mama blog has a peaceful, clean feeling that makes it a pleasure to read. As an added bonus, Becky is wonderful at coming up with helpful printable charts, lists, and guides to assist you in creating a more organized home.
This interesting blog teaches so much more than just home organization! Each article explains a hack to help you simplify your life and have less STUFF. Recent articles have included, “Organize Digital Lists with Google Keep,” “What You Might Want to Store in Your Car’s Glove Compartment,” and “Avoiding Uncluttering Regrets.”
If you’re interested in owning less, and you need more PRACTICAL tips of how to do so (rather than just minimalist mindset work), the Unclutterer blog is a great place to turn.
As a lover of lists myself, I’d have to say that my favorite thing about this blog is probably the title --- except, I can’t say that, because the content is so good too!
In the most fun, stylish way possible, Penelope writes about how to create a more organized and *beautiful* home. She speaks profusely of her love for “pretty office supplies” and how she is “unapologetically organized.” More than anyone else, Penelope makes me feel like organizing my home (and life) is really a special way to treat myself. I love that!
While Jen’s blog looks extremely simple, her posts are anything but! Some of the highest quality work I’ve seen from any blogger, Jen writes very detailed, well thought out posts that walk you step-by-step through each process. She explains very practical, actionable ideas for how to organize specific areas of your home to make them more functional.
The I Heart Organizing blog is organized based on project, rather than category. So, rather than having all “kitchen organization” articles lumped together, she has a file of “kitchen organization projects,” all of which are clearly labeled. If you want to “fix” something specific in your home, there’s probably a post for that!
What I love most about this blog is the feelings it gives me: first, the author, Jenn, just seems like such a real-life, down to earth kind of gal. Her blog makes everything feel so possible! Second, I love how EASY she makes everything look. “Clean and Scentsible” makes me feel like “I can do that!”
Jenn loves for things to smell pretty (thus the title of her blog), but at the same time, she’s committed to keeping things natural and green. What a relief! Aside from her great organizing tips, she shares lots of healthy recipes both for tasty treats, and for great smelling DIY home cleaning products. In her recent posts, she’s given recipes for “Coconut Fruit Dip,” “DIY Laundry Scent Boosters,” and “Lavender Rosemary Wax Melts.”
