The new year is the perfect time for a new start, especially when it comes to keeping your home clean and organized. It’s easy for clutter to pile up, but with the right tools and adequate storage, you can be on your way to a mess-free household. Here are a few tips to get you started.
How to Organize Your Home Like a Pro
1. Be Systematic
Choose a starting point, like the living room or a bedroom. Clean and organize that entire room, finding permanent places for all the objects there before you move on to the next area. This way, you’ll have a clean home base, and will be able to see visible progress with each room you add to the list.
2. Sort Your Belongings
As you clean each room, have a box or pile for items you want to throw out, donate, put in storage, and keep. You might also need a separate area for belongings which need to be washed or repaired before they can be used again.
Once you’ve decided what will stay in the room, set up storage bins, drawers, baskets, or another organized system to hold everything. If you just pile your items up, they will quickly become disorganized and scattered, but if you have specific containers for your belongings, they’ll be easy to keep organized.
4. Rent a Storage Unit
Consider moving items like seasonal decorations, sports equipment, and excess furniture to a storage unit to keep them from taking up space and contributing to the clutter in your home. Box up everything neatly and label it clearly, so you’ll be able to pull it out of the storage unit easily when you need it again.
