8 top home organisation and decluttering tips from Catherine Zeta-Jones, Katy Perry & more

Make 2020 the year you get organised…

Chloe Best

Planning to declutter in 2020? Whether you want to tackle an untidy kitchen or a messy wardrobe, help is at hand from these celebs, who all have the perfectly-organised homes we could only dream of. We may not have the same designer handbag collection as Kris Jenner or a huge pantry like her daughter Kendall, but we can still take cues from their impeccably-organised houses at least!

Showcase your footwear like Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine-Zeta-Jones-shoe-room

If you love shoes like Catherine Zeta-Jones but are running out of space to store them, one simple tip can free up a lot of space on your shoe rack. The Chicago actress has not only colour co-ordinated her impressive footwear collection, but she's also positioned them in alternating directions, so the pairs fit together more neatly and she can display more on each shelf. Clever, huh?

Display your makeup in Perspex containers like Billie Faiers

Billie-Faiers-makeup-collection

Beauty lovers with a huge stash of makeup like Billie Faiers can easily forget about some of their favourite products when they're hidden away in drawers or a makeup bag, so give them pride of place on your dressing table with an array of Perspex containers. You can showcase your most-used pieces and organise by product type, which could also save time on your beauty routine in the mornings. Win-win.

Colour co-ordinate your clothing like Spencer Matthews

An easy way to get your wardrobe in order is to organise your tops, dresses and other items by colour like Spencer Matthews. That last-minute struggle to find your favourite black dress or jacket just got a whole lot easier.

Show off your most-prized possessions like Kris Jenner

Kris-Jenner-handbag-collection

Kris Jenner has spent thousands on her prized Birkin handbag collection, so it's little surprise she has chosen to show it off with her very own bag wardrobe at her Los Angeles home. So why not do the same with your favourite items? Celebrate the pieces you treasure most by finding a space to store them properly in your home, even if it's just by clearing a shelf at the top of your wardrobe for your own handbags rather than leaving them languishing in a pile at the bottom.

Store kitchen ingredients in glass jars like Khloe Kardashian

Take cues from Khloé Kardashian by adding labels so you know exactly what everything is, and organise by product type to make it look even neater.
