Loving a family pet means having collars, grooming supplies, treats, and more in the house. With so many pet supplies, the aesthetics can suffer. Organizing pet supplies can make a huge difference in convenience and clutter.
Following are some tips that will help you organize your pet supplies in attractive and functional style:
Declutter Pet Supplies
Decluttering is the first step in organizing pet supplies. Gather all your pet supplies in one place and eliminate what you don’t want or need anymore.
Following are some examples of items that you should consider decluttering:
- Items from pets that are no longer with you.
- Pet food or treats that are expired.
- Pet cages or carriers that are broken or no longer used.
- Old or broken toys.
Organize Pet Supplies into Categories
Assess and organize everything that’s left. Group like items together, and this makes it faster and easier to find things when you need them. Some categories examples include:
- Grooming supplies
- Food bowls and feeding supplies
- Waste disposal items
Create a Pet Food Storage Area
Don’t forget pet food storage, particularly if you buy in bulk! Kibble can take up notable room, so your best bet is to either hide it or get an attractive container for it. One large air proof storage container can make your pet food last longer and look more organized. You can also make life easier by keeping food and bowls close to where you feed your pet. Top it off by putting treats in a stylish tin or jar, with excess treats tucked away out of sight.
Use Cute Baskets for Storing Pet Toys
While you can buy big storage bins for your pet’s toys, they are not a great choice if you are looking for decorative perks. For this purpose, it is recommended that you take advantage of cute baskets. You can easily find these in your local home improvement store. These baskets are available in a wide variety of styles and they are definitely a cute way to store your pet supplies.
Organize Miscellaneous Pet Supplies
Aside from food and toys, there are probably other pet-related items lying around your house to organize. These may include:
- Keep grooming products and tools close to where you do these activities.
- Keep cat litter and other related tools close to each litter box in the house so it is easier for you to make litter changes.
- Store waste disposal bags, collars, and leashes close to the door where you can easily grab them when you’re going out for a walk.
- Pet medications should be stored close to where you administer them.
Organizing pet supplies can be a lot of fun. After decluttering and organizing supplies, you can spend more time with your pets and less time hunting down their supplies.
