Thank you Organized Creations for this guest blog post!
The weather is slowly warming, and more people find themselves wanting to get out and do something. Many homeowners tend to prioritize cleaning and organizing in order to get a fresh start for the summer months.
Although cleaning every area of your home might sound like a daunting project, breaking it up into smaller tasks and organizing along the way can make a huge difference.
Here are a few tips to help you start fresh and begin organizing your home effectively:
1. Set Goals
The first step towards completing any task is to set a goal and make a game plan. Decide on a date you want to be done and how much time you’ll devote to your project every day. Then, decide which areas of the home you will tackle first. This will help you stay focused and make the most of your time.
Once you have chosen a specific area of your home to work on, you need to declutter that space. This means that you get rid of things that you don’t need or want, including items that don’t belong in that area. Throw away broken belongings and consider donating items that are still in good condition.
Now that you are only working with things you want to keep, it’s time to do a deep clean. There can be lots of dust and grime build-up over time, especially in areas that don’t get used very often. Simply wipe down surfaces with some cleaner and a rag to clean and freshen up the room.
Having a place for each item is essential in keeping your home organized. The easiest way to do this is by grouping similar items together. This way you can quickly know where an item belongs. If you have trouble fitting your belongings neatly in one area, consider installing more storage systems such as shelves, cabinet drawers, wall organizers, etc.
While you are focused on organizing the contents of your home, make sure not to forget about your garage. The garage is easily overlooked but is usually one of the biggest contributors to clutter and disorganization. Constant misplacement and lack of storage space make it easy for your belongings to start piling up on the floor. Warmer weather will allow you to spend more time in the garage so you can create the functional storage space you’ve always wanted.
