Sometimes the smallest spaces prove to be the most daunting when trying to get organized. However, it is still quite important to keep such areas, like your car's glove compartment and your bathroom, clutter-free. Here are some organizing ideas to clean up your tiny spaces.

Organizing Your Glove Compartment

Glove compartments hold many of a driver’s most important items. It often holds a variety of paperwork such as their vehicle registration and proof of insurance, as well as any number of other important documents such as their car owner’s manual. Other items for emergencies, such as a flashlight, maps or a first-aid kit, may also find their home in the glove compartment. All these things are important, but they are not worth much if you can never find them in the first place.

Glove compartments are normally quite small, and the sheer number of things that go into them make it very easy for them to become cluttered and disorganized. This may lead to many problems, such as misplacing an important document or even simply spending a great deal of time looking through the clutter to find whatever it is you need. Your can easily solve these problems by taking a few simple steps to organize your glove compartment. This organization may seem unimportant at first, but its true value will become very clear the next time you have to find your registration for a traffic cop or you need your flashlight to change a tire in the dark.

The first thing you will need is a way to keep your important documents in order. You can best accomplish this with an expanding file that can easily hold all of your documents and still retract to fit into the glove compartment. Be sure to write clear labels on the file to allow you to find what you need quickly. Once your documents are in place, the rest of your items should be easy to organize. Simply make sure any emergency supplies can be reached easily and quickly when you need them, and you are done.

Keeping the Bathroom Clutter Free

The bathroom is the one room in the house that is often overlooked when it comes to both tidying and organizing. This is because the bathroom isn’t specifically any one person’s room. However, certain bathroom organizing ideas will make items easy to locate, identify and assign to each member of the house. The bathroom is the one area of the house that has items belonging specifically to each family member and also the one room of the house that can generate a lot of arguments if items are misplaced or used by the wrong person.

A bathroom caddy is the single most useful item when it comes to organizing the bathroom. More specifically, one bathroom caddy per person is ideal. A bathroom caddy gives room to house all personal items including toothbrushes and other hygienic items that are considered to be personal to each family member. The bathroom caddy also allows each family member to put his or her own shampoo and other cosmetics in. The unauthorized use of these items is probably one of the biggest reasons for family fights, so organizing the bathroom may help to prevent accidental misuse.

Of course, another reason for organizing the bathroom in this way is that it looks neater. The bathroom then becomes a lot easier to manage. When there is mess, items get lost, damaged or broken and the bathroom is no different in this respect. Clutter in the bathroom can be dangerous, causing people to have accidents or at the very least to injure themselves. By ensuring that everything in your bathroom has its place, and is in its place, you can easily prevent accidents, injuries and arguments from happening.

So follow these organizing ideas to reduce the amount of clutter in both your glove compartment and your bathroom. After all, organizing your small spaces can certainly make a big difference!
