It might seem hard to believe, but Springtime in Florida is just around the corner. That makes now a great time to start planning and preparing for annual cleaning and removing clutter for your home. Thankfully, there are many simple ways to achieve this goal.
Once you’ve mastered the approaches in this article, you’ll find it much easier to keep your home tidy and in top shape all year long. Here are some of the most popular ideas to get and stay organized:
Form a Strategy
If you’ve ever jumped headlong into a project only to think of a better approach halfway through, you know the importance of taking the time to plan. This method will also make it easier to stay on task.
For example, you might make a commitment to clean one room a week. Or, you could create a rotating cleaning schedule so your home is in a constant state of being slicked up. Some experts suggest that just 20 minutes per day can make a huge impact over time.
It’s also wise to make the most of your storage space. Items that aren’t in immediate use can be stowed away until they’re needed. When you work with a reliable builder to fashion a new custom home, you get all the storage you need for your hobbies, interests, holiday items, and work requirements.
Involve the Whole Family
Have you noticed certain family members leaving behind a mess for others to clean up? It’s probably not intentional, but rather them just going about their normal day. The thing is, after a while all that clutter adds up and turns into a huge project.
You can end that pattern today by ensuring each person knows their responsibilities for continued home maintenance and chores. When everyone pitches in, cleanup is a breeze. In addition, as all family members are consistently mindful of their role in the smooth operation of the household, they’ll be more connected to the property. This leads to increased feelings of relaxation and belonging.
Make Daily Organization a Priority
Organization experts contend that something as simple as making the bed each morning contributes to an overall attitude of cleanliness, and resolve to keep your home clutter-free. Avoid keeping a “junk drawer” or turning your medicine cabinet into a catch-all for items no longer used (or all those free shampoo samples from the hotel).
Another idea is to contemplate each item of clothing as you wear it. Once washed, make a conscious decision if those clothes and shoes go back in the closet or put in the donation pile. Not only will this help you remove clutter, but it keeps your wardrobe stylish and up to date.
You could also transform your entryway into a “command central” for all your most essential items. You might already keep your house and car keys near the door. This is also an ideal spot for raincoats, sunglasses, and other frequently-used items. This way, everything stays in one area. It also frees up room elsewhere around your home.
Get a Fresh Start
Another great way to de-clutter both your house and your life is to begin anew with an exciting living adventure. Custom homes are a fun and affordable way to start another life chapter. Plus, this way you get all the things you’ve most wanted in a residence, with no undesirable aspects or things you don’t need.
Those items that will be used at various times throughout the year can easily be tucked away in the spacious storage areas you’ll create in your new custom home. That’s the best part about this option. You call the shots every step of the way, right down to the smallest detail.
