Get Organized This Fall With This Clutter-Free Designer Inspo

home organization tips

Clutter never feels good, and as we prepare for bringing out the flannel sheets and wooly throws and all the wintry decor items that come with fall decorating, organizing your home during a seasonal change actually feels right. Whether you're heading back to the office, kids are heading back to school, or you're just staying put working from home, an organized space can feel like the reset you need to kick off a new season, a new job, or just a new schedule. We rounded up some designer inspo for clearing the floor and finding spaces for backpacks, fall jackets, keys, mail, kids' artwork, even hula-hoops. Happy organizing!


Baskets And Hooks

House of Jade Interiors | Becky Kimball Photography

"As we approach back-to-school season we are seeing more and more of our clients trying to carve out designated spaces for their kids to do schoolwork in their homes. Whether it's a desk in the kitchen or a separate homework room it feels nice to have a landing zone for all of the papers, backpacks and school projects to live," says Kirsten Krason from House of Jade Interiors.

Minimize clutter by prioritizing what you want to keep, display, and hide for later use. Baskets are a great way to keep smaller items off tables, desks, consoles, and others surfaces you might use regularly. Making sure they're uniform can make them more visually appealing too.

Hooks, especially in the bathroom and entryway, are an organized way to keep things off the floors. Got kids? Keep hooks low to the ground so they can hang up their own jackets, backpacks, and more, saving you the time and stress of always being the picker-upper.

Bench Storage

JL Design | Reagen Taylor Photography

Storage benches are also an elegant way to keep outdoor items, board games, and things you don't need all the time out of sight. They're a great cleanup hack when you're expecting last-minute guests too.

Kids Artwork And Toys

JL Design

Don't feel guilty about tossing what you might consider your kids "practice" artwork on the sly, but hold on to the treasures by putting them in frames or getting creative with a DIY gallery wall.

JL Design

Turn colorful and kitschy toys like hula hoops into wall art by hanging them out in view. For toys you would rather *not* see day to day, baskets and storage trunks are your go-to.

Makeshift Office Spaces

Maestri Studio | Jenifer McNeil Baker

If you're still working from the kitchen table, consider other spots in your home so you can take back your kitchen for meals and gatherings. Turn a closet space into a desk space with statement wallpaper and try some of these IKEA hacks to make it work for you.

Living With Lolo | Life Created

Give kids their own study space in a well-lit spot, even if it's just the corner of their room. We always say add plants too. A study published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology showed that plants in an office setting can help maintain your attention, improve the indoor air that you breathe, and make a study space more calming.

Brianne Bishop Design | Anthony Tahlier Photography

Committed to working from home for the long term? Consider turning a whole room into your home office with shelving, natural light, and even a lounge area for when you're taking calls or need to break away from the computer.

Shelving

House of Jade Interiors | Kate Osborne

Going tall is one of the best ways to keep floors clutter-free. Look for shelving units that fit neatly into an unused space that store baskets, books, and other decor items. If you have a laundry room or utility room, shelving units can keep clutter at bay in more entertaining spaces too.

I think a lot of us would be lying if we said TikTok hasn't influenced us somehow. The one-stop social media platform simultaneously brings back old memories of songs or there's a new dance craze, but above it all, there's always a handful of products bound to pop up on your FYP with glowing reviews from fellow users. Amazon even launched a landing page dedicated to viral TikTok items, aptly named #FoundItOnAmazon. And of course, you may be wondering which of those products is actually worth your time and which are goofs. Well, this is where this list comes in.

Warm curry is the quintessential meal for cozy nights at home. So when the weather starts to cool down, it's the single most perfect dish to really warm you to your toes. While we would never turn our noses up at a traditional curry recipe of any kind, adding pumpkin into the mix is a creative (and *delicious*) way to make curry even more perfect for fall. So grab your notebook to copy this recipe down, or print this page for future use. This is one of our favorite cold-weather recipes yet.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons red Thai curry paste
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups peeled and cubed pumpkin
  • 28 ounces canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon pink salt
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • Optional protein: cubed chicken breasts or cubed tofu

Optional Toppings:

  • Steamed jasmine or basmati rice
  • Cilantro
  • Green onion

Directions:

  1. In a large pot or deep pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add in minced shallot, grated ginger, and minced garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in curry paste and stir well. Cook for 2 minutes, then add in sliced bell pepper and cubed pumpkin. Stir and continue cooking for 2 more minutes.
  3. Add in coconut milk, brown sugar, and salt, and stir. Bring mixture to a simmer. If using a protein, add it in at this point. Cover with a lid and lower heat to medium-low to continue simmering for 20 minutes.
  4. To make a creamy curry, take about half of the coconut milk liquid and cooked pumpkin (leaving the protein in the pot) and add to a high powered blender. Blend until completely pureed, then add back into the pot.
  5. Add in broccoli and fish sauce and continue cooking for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Serve with steamed rice and top with fresh herbs.

Notes:

This can be made vegan if the fish sauce is left out and tofu is used as the protein (or protein is left out completely).

Dudes — do you own a flannel? Well, we're pretty sure that you do, so behold SIX different ideas for easy costumes for men using that one shirt! You're welcome. Even if you have a different Halloween party every day of the week, you'll have different costumes you can wear to each one. Not only are they made with things you already own, but they're also pretty comfortable if we do say so ourselves.

To make these epic Halloween costumes, we picked up this basic red flannel from our local thrift store for $5 and paired it with a bunch of basic clothes most men already have. Scroll on to see how we made these super easy (last-minute even!) halloween costumes!

Thanks to Zane for rocking all of these looks!

The Brawny Man Halloween Costume

The strength to get things done.

Men, get those muscles ready and those pearly whites – pearly? The Brawny Man has got it all! He’s got that tough muscle bod to swoop us off our feet, the square jaw line to melt our hearts and the perfect dark hair that we just can’t wait to run our fingers through.

First, shop the (hilarious) Muscle Shirt. Think of it like a push-up bra for your entire torso. Cut off the lower arm section of the muscle suit so you can roll up the flannel sleeves and get down to business. Don't forget to grab a pack of Brawny paper towels to complete the costume!

“Oh gosh, is that some dirt over there on your vanity mirror? Girl, I’ve got you. Let me fix that.”

Two thumbs' up for this easy costume for men!

Al Borland Halloween Costume

Remember this 90s sidekick from Home Improvement? Go as him or just any tool-belt-loving fella ;).

This is a super easy costume for men because if you're a workman, you probably already have the flannel, boot cut jeans, and work boots! The key to getting this look right, however, is all about the accessories. We purchased this basic tool belt from Amazon. Fill it with your tools (or a flask) to really get you in the Halloween spirit.

We all hate measuring to hang up your favorite framed pieces of wall art. Don’t worry, Al is here to save the day.

If you don't want to commit to a full bushel of a beard, we understand. We picked up this fake beard and find the look quite comical. You can trim it to get a look that you like best.

Larry the Cable Guy Halloween Costume

“I'm happier than a tornado in a trailer park!" There's nothing better than a man who can make you laugh. Larry the Cable Guy has a particular kind of humor, but the one thing we can always count on him for is his sleeveless flannel shirts. I guess he must always be running warm.

Get ready to release some anger, because you’ll need to rip off the sleeves for this look. (Meaning that if you're planning on using all of these costumes, you might want to save this one for last). Pair your sleeveless flannel with boot cut jeans, boots and a trucker-inspired baseball cap.

This look says, “My cooking is probably subpar, but I can make you laugh while we try to cook together.” ;)

Larry's signature look is his goatee-mustache combo. We weren't going to subject Zane to actually shaving for this costume, so instead we created the look with a fake goatee stick-on beard and a brown eyebrow pencil. Easy as pie.

The Hipster Halloween Costume

Does your beer brewing side hobby need your constant attention?

Zane completely dressed for this costume himself from his own wardrobe. Pair your flannel with a V-neck tee, cuffed slim-fitting jeans and your best pair of leather loafers. Accessories are a must — think thick-rimmed glasses, beanie hat and a cold beer. PBR or Tecate will do the trick, since you are already in the process of creating the perfect beer yourself ;)

Need man bun styling tips? Or man braids if your hair is long enough.

Marty McFly Halloween Costume

Okay, real talk – can you believe the year Marty traveled to in his time machine was 2015? How time flies (even if the cars don't).

Marty’s iconic look is all about the layers, so be sure to add a jean jacket and that signature puffy vest over the flannel. Pair with boot cut jeans and the whitest pair of 90’s (dad) sneakers you own.

Zach let us borrow his board but you can find an inexpensive skateboard on Amazon too.

Keep the hair simple. We went for a side part and wind-blown vibes — traveling through time is windy, right?

Wind-blown Man Costume

We’ve all had those bad umbrella days…

This look was our absolute favorite to create. We are just dying over the fact that no wind or fan was used in creating this photo.

We had Zane dress in a normal everyday outfit, then added some wind-blown tweaks. You will want to stick wire down the inside of your tie to give it a rippled shape and then safety pin it to corner of the flannel. We also pinned up the bottom corner of the shirt and taped on some wind-blown newspaper ads to the knee of the pants. Most importantly, you’ll want a broken, inside-out umbrella to complete this costume.

And that's a wrap!
