The first thing I did was purchase a few closet organization gadgets. These are normally for shoes but I used them to store the cleaning products we use most. If you are thinking about doing something like this make sure to put your money in strong ones since you are going to be adding a good amount of weight to them.n As you can see this is not a huge space BUT we have room for cleaning supplies, hygiene supplies, our ironing board, vacuum, mop, broom, and more… So awesome!
Swap out your seasonal clothes and stay organized with Ziploc® Space Bag® products. Use these small-space storage solutions to clean up your bedroom or linen closet. Each bag will free up space and is perfect for storing bulky winter clothes and bedding or summer linens and towels. Simply stuff each bag, seal it up, and vacuum for up to 3x as much space.
You don't have to switch from a broom to a vacuum when you clean. Using a vacuum for all floor surfaces is quicker and less cumbersome! http://www.bhg.com/homekeeping/house-cleaning/tips/speed-clean/?socsrc=bhgpin042615byebyebroom&page=3
Organization ideas for kid stuff. I like this one a lot. Use dollar store comforter storage bags to store old clothes. It's almost like a vacuum-packed bag, in that they're compressed and save space, but you don't have to vacuum seal them. There are TONS of other tips on here too though.
