We all know the term quality over quantity, but how often do you stop to think about your stuff and where it all came from?
Throughout early adulthood, I carted (often unopened) boxes of clothes and household items from place to place (and I moved A LOT!), while collecting more and more stuff.

One of the biggest pain points I have as a dog mom is feeling like there is dog stuff EVERYWHERE in our house. In order to combat this issue, I came up with some ways to categorize and organizing our dog clothes, toys, supplies, and gear.
My two biggest goals when organizing are:
None of my organization tips below require you to have a Pinterest-worthy space or matching bins. You can certainly make it that way if you choose, but you'll see that I've personally chosen function over fashion when it comes to my organizational strategy ;-)
Without further ado, here are my top four tips for keeping your dog stuff organized!
