I’m always on the lookout for clever ways to organize my space. It’s just so unsettling to look around and see items strewn about the house in no particular order. Being organized just makes life so much simpler and it gives you great peace of mind, too. Oh, and did I mention it makes your space look amazing? That’s true too.

Here are 19 incredibly smart ways to organize your home:
