  • Home Organization Ideas

    Posted on September 28 2016


    If you are experiencing stress from a cluttered home, then it is time to get organized. A complete home organization can save you several hours a day because you don’t have to look for something that is under a pile of laundry. The best places to begin organizing are the garage or basement. A garage is designed for holding vehicles, lawn care equipment and gardening tools rather than racks filled with clothing or boxes filled with junk. In a basement, you need fast access to the laundry area or climate-control equipment. Begin to purge the excess items from a basement or garage, and use storage systems such as metal shelving or pegboard systems.

  • Easy Tips for De-cluttering Your Home

    Posted on July 17 2016


    Clutter in the home can cause stress and anxiety, but it’s often difficult to get the motivation and time to de-clutter. Having less stuff in your home can lead to a more peaceful place to rest and live. When you begin the process of cleaning out your home, it’e best to start small. Don’t try any large projects unless you have plenty of time to get them done. Also, be sure that you have a place to put unwanted items and have a plan to get them out of the house as soon as possible so they don’t find their way back into your living space. Most important of all, understand that to de-clutter an entire home is a process and it doesn’t have to be done quickly. The following de-cluttering tips can help you on the path of creating a peaceful and beautiful living space.

    ​Start Small:
    Begin your de-clutter project with a small area, but one that will make an impact. If you have an entryway that tends to collect random things, begin with it. Perhaps you have a junk drawer that never allows you to find what you need or it may be that your closet needs work? Allow yourself 10-15 minutes to work on the area. Begin with things that are obviously trash and keep a trash bag at hand to throw things away immediately. A box for items to donate should also be close by. Once your time is up, you can keep going if you feel like it or take a break if you’ve been overwhelmed. Even 10-15 minutes a day will allow for significant cleaning time for the week.
