But organizing your entire life at once can be overwhelming, especially when it takes a bit of time. These projects are quick, satisfying, and can easily be done in a weekend. It’s all about baby steps, you know? Read on for some of my favorite things you can organize that will bring you joy.

There are so many different ways to organize your nail polish collection, it just depends on how big your stash is. Use dividers in a drawer like Kate La Vie did here, or opt for a wall-mounted spice rack for a fun display. If you have a vanity, you can even use a lazy susan or cake stand to organize and display smaller collections.

There are tons of different ways to organize your book collection, but I’m a fan of color-coordination. But you can alphabetize, organize by genre, by size, even flip them around for a “neutral” vibe. All you need to do is figure out which style will bring you the most joy to look at every day.
