What’s your New Year’s Resolution going to be this year? To exercise more? To spend more time with family? To eat less sugar? Why not add organization to the list? With a simple plan, you can start the year off right, therefore bringing a sense of cleanliness and harmony to your home that will last all year long. The winter months are the perfect time to stay indoors and get your house in order so that you have more time to spend outside come spring and summer.
To get started, follow our 3-step guide below for the best way to hold true to your resolution this year and to create a perfectly organized home:
Find a dumpster rental company in the area and let them know your goal. The right company will be able to help you select the right size and then will schedule a time to drop it off. By using a dumpster, you’ll reduce clutter from piling up as you go room to room which can optimize your process and minimize adding extra piles to your mess. Throw as you go for the most efficient use of your dumpster.
Set up a donate and sell area; any items that can be donated or sold can be moved to an area that you’ve designated. Check your local charities to see if they offer a pick-up service. Create a separate box for any papers. Once your home is organized you can revisit this box and properly file away what you need to keep.
Start with your storage areas…Look through all containers and shelves and discard all items that you no longer use. So often, we place items in containers and then forget about them. If you haven’t used it in a full year, toss it.
Repeat the same procedure in each room. Use containers and storage bins to store items you’d like to hang on to and properly label them.
An efficient process is to remove everything from a room, drawer, closet, or shelf and then take each item into account as you put it back. This will give you the opportunity to clean the area and to evaluate what you put back in. Again, anything you haven’t used within the last year – let it go.
That’s it! A clean and organized home gives you the feel of more space and frees your mind of chaos caused by disorganization. When you look to find something you need, you’ll have organized bins thus saving you time.
