So, how’s that working for you?
Some of our clients have accumulated literally decades worth of stuff without really figuring out a way to organize it. Here are some very easy ways to manage your stuff.
- Keep stuff in the room in which you’ll use it most often. For example, keep your kitchen gear in the kitchen. If you’ve run out of room in the kitchen for it, then it’s time to divest yourself of some of it.
- Do have your TV in the den? Where are your VHS tapes, or DVDs? If you’ve got so many that they’re all over the house, then it’s time to donate some of them to your favourite charity.
- Keep like stuff together. Where are this year’s bills, receipts, tax notices, and bank statements? Bring them all together in one spot – a shoebox, a file folder, or a drawer that you’ll use only for this year’s records. If you’ve got all this paperwork in one spot, it’ll make it that much easier when it comes to tax time.
- Ask for help. Sometimes when we’re too close to a situation, we lose perspective. Test your perceptions. Ask a family member, a friend, or a professional for their opinion regarding your home organization. Another set of eyes may see things you haven’t noticed in a long time. For example, you may not notice that the piles of newspapers you’ve kept in the garage are now a happy home for furry little creatures you’d rather not house.
Decluttering, sorting and organizing your space can bring a new perspective, and a new look, to your home.
