Tips to Get you Instantly Organized

As the days get longer and the weather warms, it’s the perfect time to throw open the windows and let the fresh air in. If you’ve been suffering the winter blahs, like so many of us, spring’s the time to start fresh. There’s a reason it’s spring cleaning time! With the world outside renewing itself, it’s time to take a look at those unorganized spots you’ve been meaning to do something about and give them a good transformation.

To help you do just that, we’ve got four brand new products that we guarantee will give you instant order in your home, office, or studio. No more time spent ruffling through the clutter to find your office or art supplies. Now you’ll be able to spend your time being productive and doing the things you really love.

Out with the Old, In with the New

You’ve probably heard it before, but the best way to start getting organized is to throw away or donate all the items that aren’t serving you anymore. Think of it as a way to make room for the organizational tools that will give you more freedom and more time. Take it one item at a time and ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” “Is this helping me do my job/art easier or better? If the answer is no, get rid of it.

Separate by Category

Now that you’ve cleared out all the unnecessary items, it’s time to take stock of what you have and separate them into categories. For example, put all your writing or drawing tools together, such as pens, pencils, markers, erasers, etc. A good way to do this is to think of it as “like with like” and soon your things will naturally be categorized by similarity or use. By doing this you’ll never have to scramble for specific items, but will have them in one place and all together.

Containerize

Now that you have everything in neat piles, it’s time to put them in containers that will keep them together and at your fingertips whenever you’re ready to use them. This is where Arteza comes in. Our business is to make it easier for you to have all the supplies you need to get your work done or create your best art. That means, in addition to quality art products, such as paint, pencils, and canvases, we also provide you with caddies, cabinets, baskets and organizers so that you can get on with the business of making art.

Just in time for spring cleaning, these are our newest products to get you instantly organized:
