15 Quotes About Organization to Tidy Up Your Life

We love to organize.

Something about putting things in order and having a place for everything makes us feel de-stressed and at peace. Right up there with our love of new school supplies is our love of organization tools. Drawer organizers? Yes, please. A label maker for our files, bins, shelves, and anything else we can think of to label? Absolutely! Drawer organizers? We’ll take them all! Those clear bins for fridge organization? You know we love them!

It seems like, these days, organization is a major trend. We’ve all tried to figure out what clothing and items we own that spark joy and thanked the items we no longer need before giving them away. We’ll also admit that, once or twice, we’ve spent our Friday nights watching episodes of The Home Edit and getting inspired to spend our weekends making our closets look like they belong in a celebrity home. And one of our favorite hobbies is definitely scrolling Pinterest and then adding all the beautiful glass jars for pantry organization to our Amazon cart. 

15 Quotes About Organization to Tidy Up Your Life

While part of the purpose of organization is to have a beautiful space that you and others can enjoy (and to not panic every time someone says they’re coming over!), we think the main reason to declutter and create systems is for the sense of peace and contentment it can bring to our lives. We know from personal experience that when there’s a place for everything and everything is in its place, we feel calmer and it honestly has an impact on our mental health. We’re not always perfect at keeping things in order, but we sure do feel better when we choose to make the effort!
