Spring is around the corner: flowers are blooming, bunny rabbits are hoping and the house is full of clutter. You are feeling overwhelmed, stressed and know it’s time to get rid of all of that clutter. Take control of your life and reclaim your space.
It’s important to have a clear goal in mind of what you would like your home to look like after getting rid of all the clutter. Your vision should give you a clear ideal how to reclaim the space in your home. Having a project goal for your organizing your house or garage helps you to decide what to keep or throw out in your decluttering process.
First, declutter the area or room that is causing you the most stress. Start small, but, also set a fixed time and day to have the project completed. Have four bags; label them as “Keep” “Throw out” “Donate” and “Not sure”. Use a fast sorting approach, ask yourself a few questions to help determine what to toss or keep:
1. When was the last time I used or worn the item?
2. Will I use or wear it again?
3. Is it worthy holding on to it or is it taking up space?
We have many products and items in our house which we rarely us. This is a good time to decide options for storing these items. Some people decided to rent a storage unit. StorPlace Self Storage offers a wide variety of storage options, some have heated and cooled units for storing pictures, antiques or oil paintings. Sizes of the storage units can range from 5×5, 5×10, and 10×10 to 10×30. The size of the storage unit you choose will depend on how much clutter you need to get out of your house or garage.
An important part of clutter control is having a place for everything and keeping your stuff in its place. Organizing your home will make your life less stressful and lessen feeling overwhelmed when you walk in the door. Plus, you get more time to enjoy the Spring!!!!
