2018; Spring into a clutter-free space

Written by

It’s that time of year again where we start looking around at all we’ve collected. 

Where did that come from?  Who brought that into the house?  We all go through this.  But what better time than spring to have a fresh start for the year. 

Here are just a few tips to get started on the road to a clutter-free and or organized home.

  1. Create a plan of action.  Make a list of the places not on your regular cleaning schedule and create a checklist. Keep to one room at a time.  This will not only help with staying organized but will help keep you focused on the task at hand.

  2. Storage containers. Many discount retailers and big box stores carry all sorts of storage containers. From closet to drawer storage, you’re sure to find what you need to help the process. They are also available in many price points.

  3. Chose one area to concentrate on.  If you’re starting with your kitchen for instance, look at the pantry.  It’s one of the largest storage areas in that space.  Things have a habit of getting shoved to the back shelves and are forgotten. 

  4. Separate items into categories.  Once you’ve started organizing, you may find items that are not needed any longer.  Create three piles; things needed on a daily basis, seasonal and give away.  When organizing my pantry and master closet, I found items no longer needed or seldom used.  Seasonal items went to the back of my closet along with putting things on a higher pantry shelf that I rarely used in the kitchen.  I also invested in a few metal baskets that just slide onto the shelf for smaller items I use daily.  It helps with time and organization.

I hope these simple and relatively inexpensive tips help when you’re ready to start your spring cleaning.
