When your home is cluttered and messy, relaxing and enjoying your surroundings can be challenging. That’s why getting organized is key to having a clean house. This blog post will discuss 11 steps to get your home organized and clutter-free!
The first step is to declutter your home. This means getting rid of anything that you don’t need. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t used an item in six months, you don’t need it! Donate or sell items that are still in good condition.
This means figuring out where you will store all your belongings. You may need to purchase storage containers or shelves. But once you have a plan, stick to it!
It’s time to start cleaning! First, begin dusting and vacuuming all surfaces in your home. Then move on to scrubbing floors and bathrooms. Finally, don’t forget to clean the windows and mirrors!
Once your home is physically clean, it’s time to focus on the clutter. Go through each room and declutter again. This time, pay attention to items just taking up space but serving no purpose. For example, do you need that stack of magazines or those old DVDs?
Now that your home is decluttered and clean, it’s time to maintain it! This means committing to cleaning regularly. Schedule some time each week to tidy up and ensure everyone in the family is pitching in. You can keep your home clean and organized all year long with a little effort!
These are the steps to declutter and organize your home; now, you can implement them! Sometimes having more space helps declutter your home. But, on the other hand, maybe you need a new home! Contact Harbor Classic Homes today to learn about our unique floorplans to fit your growing family’s needs.
