    Posted on August 08 2016


    Although being a parent is oftentimes a rewarding experience, many mothers and fathers find that cleaning up after their children is extraordinarily difficult. In many cases, it is the child’s toys that cause the biggest problems. However, it’s important to know that there are several things you can do to keep your child’s toys organized in the home setting. Here are three of them:

    1. Prevent Toys From Accumulating. In many cases, children collect a ton of toys, many of which they rarely or never play with. If this is the case for your child, it’s important to know that you don’t have to let tons of unused toys populate every corner of your home. Instead, master the art of purging through the use of tools like KidsCanGiveToo.com. This website enables children to donate half of the gifts they receive for their birthday to a charity that they choose. Another great resource is Pley. This toy rental company enables children to select which toy they want and then receive it via mail. When the child gets tired of a specific toy, she or he can return it in exchange for a new one. Finally, you may want to consider donating your child’s unused toys to a kids toy organization.

  • 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.

  • Stay Organized During Your Move

    Posted on June 25 2016


    Keeping organized during a move can feel quite challenging. But with a little planning ahead of time, it doesn’t have to be a huge headache. Here are some tips that will help you keep track of everything and keep your sanity during the move:

    1) Use color coding. You can color code boxes with different colored tape or stickers. Assign each a room a color and be consistent about using it. This will make it vastly easier to keep track of what goes in each room. Color-coded boxes can be identified at a glance, from a distance. Make sure you make a list from the start that assigns the colors to different rooms. This will help prevent you from using the same color for two rooms without realizing it. Then, keep track of the list so you can reference it when unpacking.

  • Seven Steps for Organizing Drawers

    Posted on June 05 2016


    Organizing your closet drawers makes it easier to find the items needed to get dressed in the morning for work or in the evening for special events. Walk-in closets often have organizational systems that include clothing rods at different levels, shelves in a variety of sizes and drawers that are similar to a chest of drawers. Instead of shoving garments into a closet’s drawers in a willy-nilly fashion, store things properly to avoid damaging the items along with making it easier to find things. You can also organize the drawers that are in pieces of furniture throughout a home.

    One: Dump out the Drawers

    Dump everything out of all of the drawers onto a tabletop, bed or floor in order to choose what you need to keep or throw away. Have a trash bag ready to toss out socks with holes, and you may want to make a pile of items that require repair. If you no longer need a gently-worn garment, then place it in a container to donate it to a charity.

  • After Spring Cleaning Keeping the Home Organized

    Posted on May 08 2016


    With warmer breezes blowing, you’ll be inspired to open your windows, air out your home and begin your spring cleaning. It’s great to get in there and really start cleaning the home after a long winter. However, that’s only the first step to creating a lovely, uncluttered home the rest of the year. It’s important that your spring cleaning also includes setting yourself up for continued success in keeping your home clean and organized by taking the following steps.

    Managing Your Items

    Once you’ve cleaned your home, you need to find a way to manage your things in the future. Cleaning your home once a year isn’t the greatest way to gain the most enjoyment out of your space. You need to be realistic about how you manage the items that come into the home. Be realistic about what you’ll use and what will be hard to manage. A front entry with adorable boxes tied in ribbons might be magazine-worthy. If the idea of untying the box each time you need to use it makes you cringe, it’s not something that will fit with your lifestyle.
